Haydock Park hosts Industry Ownership Day

Haydock Park logoHaydock Park Racecourse hosts the Racehorse Owners Association with an Industry Ownership Day on Thursday, June 6.

The series of initiatives being held across the country during 2019 recognise existing racehorse owners and aim to promote the thrill and accessibility of racehorse ownership.

For ROA members the Industry Ownership Days incorporate the popular regional meetings which include lunch and an update from the ROA Chief Executive Charlie Liverton as well as an opportunity to use the racecourse facility for the day. To allow more members to enjoy the Industry Ownership Days, racecourses are also offering complimentary admission to all ROA members. Hosting the event is former jump jockey and now broadcaster Mick Fitzgerald.

The ROA, which has over 8,000 members, will once again have staff and board members in attendance, with the ROA gazebo proving a popular destination for both owners and non-owners with questions on racehorse ownership.

Representatives from Retraining of Racehorses will be on hand to promote success stories of numerous ex-racehorses and the many different options that are available to thoroughbreds once their career in racing is over.

The ROA sponsors the day’s racecard and members will be invited to take part in interviews about their experiences and numerous post-race presentations for winners, including the ROA Owners Jackpot race which gives a £2,000 bonus to the winning horse if it’s majority-owned by ROA members. There are also extra £500 bonuses if the winning horse’s trainer is an ROA member and also if the breeder is an ROA member.

The regional meeting and lunch are fully booked. Free racecourse entry for ROA members on the Industry Ownership Days is available through or by calling 0207 152 0200.

ROA Chief Executive Charlie Liverton said: “The Industry Ownership Days are a tremendous success and we are delighted at the response we have received from the racecourses, racegoers and, of course, our members at Pontefract and Newton Abbot. Being able to inform many racing enthusiasts about the accessibility and overall fantastic experience of racehorse ownership through interviews with our members on the day was a real positive.

“We’re looking forward to taking the Industry Ownership Day to Haydock Park in the north west which is an important member conurbation. On June 6 we hope members and non-members alike will join us for great day of Flat racing and a celebration of ownership.”
