The BHA, in conjunction with Newmarket Racecourse, are hosting a reception to celebrate 25 years of the British Horseracing Graduate Development Programme.

The reception will take place on Friday 9 October, at Newmarket’s Dubai Future Champions Festival. Invitations have been sent to alumni as well as key sponsors and supporters of the programme.

The reception is for 120 guests and will include access to the racecourse for the afternoon’s racing, a champagne reception provided by The Jockey Club, buffet lunch and limited drinks.

All alumni from the programme who haven’t yet received an invitation, or have changed their contact details since taking part, are urged to get in touch with the BHA ([email protected]) for more information and to secure a place at the reception. Tickets for alumni will cost £25 and are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Nick Rust, Chief Executive of the BHA, said:

“Since 1991 the British Horseracing Graduate Development Programme has launched the careers of many leading figures in the British Racing industry. It is a programme the BHA is extremely proud to manage and offers a fantastic opportunity for graduates. Our thanks must go to all the sponsors and supporters that have been involved in the Programme since its inception 25 years ago and I hope everyone attending on the day enjoys the landmark celebration for this prestigious Programme.”
