Why should I join the ROA?
Anyone can join the ROA - even if they do not have a share in a racehorse.
ROA membership is just 68p a day (£249 a year). Nearly all 8,000 members recoup their fee through our many benefits.
Free racecourse entry for when you don't have a runner
Just five visits per year would save you an average of £100

When owners have a runner on the day, the racecourse will provide them with a car parking label. However, members of the ROA are entitled to an annual car parking label that will afford them access to most Owners and Trainers car parking areas across the racing calendar, even when they don’t have a runner on the day.
Keeping up-to-date on all industry news with Thoroughbred Owner Breeder
annual subscription normally costs £55
With a significant investment to protect and support, it is in any racehorse owner’s interests to make sure that they keep fully informed on all relevant news within the sport. Members of the ROA receive the industry ‘must-read’ Thoroughbred Owner Breeder magazine monthly.
Racehorse Owners Compensation Scheme (ROCS)
It is possible for owners to ensure that they have financial compensation for their racehorse should it become injured, either permanently or temporarily, the costs of treating the horse at a top veterinary clinic, or the value of the horse if it dies. Together with the renowned bloodstock insurance broker Lycetts, the ROA has enabled ROA members to purchase a unique and exclusive form of insurance called ROCS.
Prize-money - know the score
The ROA works tirelessly, via participation on central horseracing boards and committees, and through the work of its democratically elected Board members, to secure the best possible prize-money for owners.
