Qin Yinghe, a senior representative from the China Ministry of Agriculture (MOA), arrived in Britain on Thursday 18th February to learn about thoroughbred breeding during a six month secondment. Mr Qin will carry out his practical training at Dalham Hall Stud and will attend the lectures of The National Stud Student Training Course, both in Newmarket.
Mr Qin, currently a Researcher and Lecturer at the China Agriculture University in Beijing, will be responsible for all MOA affairs concerning horseracing and breeding upon his return to China.
The invitation for Mr Qin (35) to undertake training in this country is the third such invitation carried out under the joint international marketing initiative between the British Horseracing Board (BHB), Doncaster Bloodstock Sales, Federation of Bloodstock Agents, Tattersalls and Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association (TBA), in which assisting the Chinese with the training of senior staff continues to play a key part.
The previous two students, Yao Xin Kui and Lu Ning, are held in very high regard by the relevant Chinese government authorities, and currently occupy senior positions within the developing equestrian industry in the country.
Gavin Pritchard-Gordon, TBA chief executive, said: “”Students of the calibre of Mr Qin Yinghe reflect the Chinese Authorities’ high regard for the level of training provided in Britain, and we would like to thank the National Stud and Dalham Hall Stud for continuing to support this extremely worthwhile initiative.””
Jackie Hutchinson, BHB international marketing executive, said: “”We are delighted to welcome another senior representative from China, to continue our strategy of providing training for key Chinese personnel in their developing racing industry, a significant future bloodstock market.””
