LONG serving Victorian Harness Racing Media Association President Gordon Lockman passed away peacefully in the Northern Hospital this morning.
Lockman had been ill for many months, but insisted on being at the VHRMA Hall of Fame dinner, held at Tabcorp Park Melton in November in what was his last public appearance.
A harness racing devotee, Gordon was inducted into the Harness Racing Hall Of Fame in 2011.
An illustrious career saw him involved with the now defunct publication, Australian Trotting Register, the HBA Stallion Guide and he was editor of Trackbred magazine for a number of years.
Lockman also held a position as Secretary/Manager of both the Cranbourne Harness Racing Club and Newcastle Harness Racing Club.
Always available to assist any harness racing personnel, Lockman will be sadly missed by the industry.
