Dido Harding, owner of the 1998 Tote Cheltenham Gold Cup winner, Cool Dawn, and Harry Herbert, of Highclere Thoroughbred Racing, will be two of the speakers at next month’s British Horseracing Board Owners’ Seminar.
The two-day event is the tenth Seminar organised by the BHB’s Ownership Marketing Group. It takes place in Newmarket on 27th and 28th September, and aims to provide prospective racehorse owners with all the information they need.
During the two days, delegates will be able to hear about all aspects of ownership from a wide range of people connected with the sport. Topics include ‘How To Run A Partnership’ and ‘Choosing Your Trainer’. The seminar includes visits to trainers’ yards, the National Stud, Tattersalls and Newmarket Races.
The cost for a place on the Seminar is £225 (plus VAT) which includes all materials, meals, transport and racecourse admission. However, as with all previous Seminars, if any delegate becomes a registered owner within a year of the Seminar, the fee is refunded in full. All delegates who become registered owners within a year will also receive a year’s free membership of the Thoroughbred Breeders Association and the Racehorse Owners Association.
Only ten places are left for this year’s event. Anyone requiring further details should call 01753 441198 (8.00am – 8.00 pm, seven days a week).
Zoë Davis BHB Ownership Marketing Executive said: “”Our Owners Seminars’ are designed to appeal to anyone thinking about getting involved in ownership. The two days in Newmarket are informative, fun and great value for money – when you consider that the average price paid for a racehorse is in the region of £18,000, paying the £225 seminar fee is a small price to pay, to learn some of the important issues about getting involved in ownership.””
