Fairview said goodbye to widely respected stipendiary steward Julia Keevy on Friday (15 Feb) as she will be joining the Mauritius Turf Club next month.

“The people at Fairview have all been amazing and I will miss them. It has been a privilege working in Port Elizabeth.

“It is wonderful to see what all the stakeholders have done here with the facilities and the racing. It is a real team effort,” Keevy said at Fairview.

The National Horseracing Authority (NHA) boss Arnold Hyde was at Fairview to thanked Keevy for her services and wish her well for the future.

“Julia is a pioneer as she was the first female stipe to be employed by the NHA. She is opening doors for other female stipes to follow.

“It is a sad day at the NHA to say goodbye to her,” Hyde said.
