Board Election 2022


The ROA application process to appoint new Board Members is now open. All members are invited to express their interest for one of the available positions. A total of three places are available.

Anyone wishing to apply must meet the following criteria;

  • A member of the ROA
  • A Qualifying Owner at some time during the twelve-month period immediately preceding the date of joining the Board
  • Either a sole owner (or together with a spouse or civil partner, or an entity which is wholly owned by the candidate or with a spouse or civil partner) who owns 100% of one racehorse or interests in more than one Racehorse which add up to at least one hundred per cent; and the Racehorse(s) is trained in Great Britain


Love racing

Candidates should be passionate about improving the racehorse ownership experience, be able to attend monthly meetings and be willing to draw on their experiences and knowledge to help shape the future of horse racing and the ROA.

Key skills

As Members will be aware, last year the ROA implemented a corporate governance review and one of the recommendations was the transition to a skill-set based Board. Therefore, this year, in order to ensure that we have the correct skills and expertise to help progress the ROA’s strategy and wider industry initiatives we would like to strongly encourage applicants with experience or knowledge in the following areas:

  1. Finance;
  2. Communication; and
  3. Technology.

It is critical that applicants have experience working at board or director level as all three roles will be providing strategic insights, governance, subject matter expertise and leadership to the ROA
