22 Oct 2013 Pre-2014 Releases

The Racing Industry Course (TRIC) is now well established and is highly regarded as the course to attend if you have recently attained, or have aspirations for, management positions within the horseracing industry. Each year the course attracts delegates from around the globe to take part in this week long intensive course featuring top speakers from within the industry and including rare behind the scenes visits to places such as HH Sheikh Mohammed’s breeding operation Darley, and Europe’s largest Equine Hospital, NEH.

This British Horseracing Authority Course is hosted by The British Racing School whose first class facilities are ideally located at the head quarters of racing in Newmarket. The course seeks to attract UK and International delegates from middle management upwards, either those new to the industry or who are looking to broaden their knowledge and understanding of racing, in Britain and abroad.

Paul Bittar, Chief Executive of The British Horseracing Authority said: “On the track horseracing is relatively straightforward, but the range of stakeholders involved and sheer quantity and variety of interested parties make the business and politics of the sport much more complex than first realised.

“The Racing Industry Course provides attendees with a unique opportunity to better understand all business aspects of the sport, as well as giving those present the opportunity to talk face to face with experts in each field. For those wanting a career working in the business of racing it is a week very well spent.”

The course, to be held from the 3rd to 7th February 2014, will feature seminars covering the key aspects of racing, interactive sessions hosted by influential figures in the racing world, and daily visits including Tattersalls and a top trainer’s yard. It will cover a wide range of topics from breeding, training and welfare through to the complexities of the funding of racing, racing’s relationship with the media and integrity in the sport.

Rory MacDonald, Chief Executive at the British Racing School said, ““TRIC aims to piece together the complex ‘jigsaw’ that is racing and provide those attending with the very latest developments and initiatives in the industry. Its unique strength is the chance to question top speakers in racing and debate the issues of the moment. It really is an interactive experience.”
