“Kelso will stage a special ‘Ownership Day’ during racing at their next meeting on Saturday 17th October. Supported by the British Horseracing Board’s (BHB) Ownership Marketing Group, this event will include a Partnership Parade, an ‘Introduction to Racehorse Ownership’ and a free prize draw.
The ‘Introduction to Racehorse Ownership’ will be before the Partnership Parade, where prospective owners and interested racegoers can learn a more about racehorse ownership and also enter a prize draw to win a racehorse for a day at a future Kelso Meeting.
Racegoers should aim to arrive at the racecourse for 12.00pm as the ‘Introduction to Racehorse Ownership’ will start at 12.15pm where they will hear Henry Beeby, Managing Director of Doncaster Bloodstock Sales, Tim Finch, Scottish Bloodstock Agency and trainer Len Lungo, give advice on becoming a racehorse owner. The names of those attending these talks will then be entered in the free prize draw to win a racehorse for a day.
The Partnership Parade will begin at 1.30pm and will give potential racehorse owners the opportunity to see a number of horses in which shares are available. The horses will be paraded in the paddock with a commentary given on the horses breeding, its present situation and its likely prospects for the season. Prospective owners will be able to talk to trainers of the horses in the parade to discuss all aspects such as costings and potential running plans. The horses will also have the opportunity to gallop on the track after racing.
Zoe Davis, BHB Ownership Marketing Executive, commented
“”We are delighted that Kelso is staging this ‘Ownership Day’. Potential owners and racegoers will have the opportunity to learn more about ownership at our ‘Introduction to Racehorse Ownership’ which will hopefully encourage some of those attending to get involved through the Partnership Parade that afternoon!””
Richard Landale, Racecourse Manager at Kelso, commented,
“”This is the third year we have staged a Partnership Parade and I am confident that it will be a real benefit to the trainers parading horses and as successful as previous years bringing together likely new owners and partnerships with horses that are available and ready to race.””
