The Racehorse Owners Association will be hosting nine Industry Ownership Days up and down the UK during 2019. The days are intended to recognise existing members and to promote the thrill and accessibility of ownership to potential racehorse owners. The first is at Pontefract on Tuesday April 9.
The Industry Ownership Days in 2019 will see a number of additional benefits for members in attendance, including access to the ROA’s popular regional meetings (bookable in advance) which include lunch, as well as an opportunity to use the racecourse facility for the day; complimentary admission to all ROA members; access to members of the ROA team and a well-known racing industry figure who will be acting as host for the day. Mick Fitzgerald takes up this role at Pontefract, and at several other Industry Ownership Days throughout the year.
In addition to these benefits, every Industry Ownership Day will incorporate an ROA Owners Jackpot race on the card, which gives a £2,000 bonus to the winning horse if it’s majority-owned by ROA members. The first scheduled Owners Jackpot race will be the ROA Owners’ Jackpot Handicap (Class 5) 4yo+ rated 56-70 to be run over ONE MILE (race no. 11436). The ROA will also sponsor across the day’s card. Your support would therefore be very much appreciated with both runners and attendance.
Invitations for the regional meeting and lunch have been posted to owners who live locally, and the event is fully booked. Free racecourse entry for ROA members on the Industry Ownership Days is available through the ROA website www.roa.co.uk/events or by calling 0207 152 0200.
