What happened to?

Reading other sites as you do, but had seen it earlier on today on NZTR

The Sir Tristram Fillies Classic

It has become the Dave and Karyn Ellis Fillies Classic

I have to agree with that very opinionated character Kopia......puke

How does this happen, who approves these name changes, or is it a matter if you have enough money you can just do it anyway

Firstly I think that I agree with the comments above. 
However before I firmly slam the change of name, what is the registered official name of the race? 
If the offical name of the race is the Sir Tristram Classic, then by all means David and Karen, sponsor it by ADDING you name to the official name BUT don’t replace it.

From 19/20 NZTR Graded Stakes/Group & Listed Schedules & Reports

Saturday 8-Feb-20 Waikato RC Waikato Guineas Waikato Guineas G2 3 2000 100,000

Saturday 8-Feb-20 Waikato RC Fillies Classic Sir Tristram Fillies Classic G2 3F 2000 100,000

Saturday 8-Feb-20 Waikato RC Herbie Dyke Stakes International Stakes G1 WFA 3+ 2000 400,000

Saturday 8-Feb-20 Waikato RC BCD Group Sprint Waikato Sprint G1 WFA 3+ 1400 200,000

Current name in BOLD, registered name in RED

So based on what you post, it really should be

David and Karyn Ellis Sir Tristram Fillies Classic

Herbie Dyke International Stakes

BCD Group Waikato Sprint

Legacy Lodge Waikato Guineas, which is the only one correctly named

So a few liberties being taken, and it would appear, laxity on the part of NZTR in not ensuring these races are correctly named
