Mr Cooper is honorary legal counsel for HRA, chairman of the HRA rules committee and is a former HRT chairman and TOTE Tasmania director.

Mr Leis is a former veterinarian with more than 30 years experience breeding and racing standardbred horses. He is also a former chairman of TT-Line Company Pty Ltd and UMT.
