The team at NZTR is sad to advise that long-time and much respected racing administrator Campbell Moncur died peacefully this morning after a lengthy battle with illness.

Campbell had, since a cancer diagnosis 15 years ago, managed his health and family time while maintaining a tireless work ethic.

Campbell’s career in racing goes back to the 1970’s when he was part of the team that developed and turned the key on the Jetbet tote system.  His responsibilities grew over the years in a variety of roles through his years at the TAB, then with NZTR where he led the team as a General Manager or Acting-CEO.  He also had periods of employment as CEO for Ticketek and for the TRAC group of racing clubs.

The description of the roles he served are secondary to the person we knew, a natural and warm leader, a wealth of knowledge and judgement, who could easily laugh at himself or with others.  His passion for our sport of racing was boundless. 

Our thoughts and those of all who know and admire Campbell are with his wife Mary, their children and grandchildren.

A person who obviously had a passion for the NZ Racing Industry including punters. To think that Jetbet was developed in the early 70's with input by Campbell Moncur and 40 years later the Industry replaces part of it which only belongs back at that time.
