Chris Brown, Chairman of the Board of CTL, speaking with Nationwide News today.

Mr. Hobson was appointed in February last year to reverse the decline in sponsorship support for local horseracing.

A former senior manager at both Pepsi and Wray and Nephew, Hobson was understood to have been struggling to make an impression at CTL.

Despite optimism at the time of his appointment, CTL still faced the situation where too few of its major races and racedays, were attracting the requisite levels of sponsorship support.

Efforts to contact the Chief Executive Officer at CTL, Cedric Stewart were unsuccessful, as his mobile phone rang to voice mail.
