Racing Queensland announced last week that it has set up a trust fund for the family of Chief Steward James Perry who was lost in the recent Queensland floods.
James served as a Steward at Seoul Racecourse for two-and-a-half years from the beginning of 2008 until September 2010 when he took the decision to return to his native Australia. With racing in Korea always taking place on a Saturday and Sunday, he needed more weekend time to spend with his family.
He was held in very high regard in Korea.
* A memorial service for James Perry will be held in the Chapel next to the Robb Hall at Seoul Foreign Middle School at 2pm on Friday, simultaneous with a service in his native Sydney.
