York Racecourse Mon 27 February; Musselburgh Racecourse Tues 28 February; Cheltenham Racecourse Thurs 2 March; Newmarket Rowley Mile Racecourse Fri 3 March
Each event takes place between 10.30am and 1.30pm followed by an informal lunch
While we fully understand the many competing demands on your time, the events do provide a good opportunity to hear direct from the leaders of the BHA, the Racecourse Association and the Horsemens’ Group on important news and developments affecting you and our sport. Issues covered will include progress against racing’s growth strategy, the very latest on the implementation of the new levy, the fixture list, what is being done to support the recruitment, retention and development of employees and plans to grow our sport and market it to a wider audience.
Presenters will include Nick Rust, Chief Executive of the BHA, Stephen Atkin, Chief Executive of the RCA, Philip Freedman, Executive Chairman of the Horsemen’s Group and Rod Street, Chief Executive of Great British Racing, all of whom will also be on a ‘Question Time’ panel with others to answer your questions and to listen to what you have to say.
The event is being promoted widely to other participants, including owners, as well as racecourses and the usual industry bodies. An informal networking lunch will be provided once the event closes at 1.30pm, should you be able to stay.
2017 is an important year for racing, and these events will ensure you are well informed about things that affect you, as well as give you a voice in the future direction of British racing.
Places are limited to 200 (100 at Musselburgh) and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. To reserve your place, please email IndustryRoadshows2017@britishhorseracing.com stating the event that you wish to attend by Wednesday 15 February. You can also register a place for other members of your team or an owner. Please also look out for an invitation and full agenda which will follow in the next couple of weeks.
