  • Do you want to own a racehorse but are mystified by how to get involved?

    A new guide to owning a racehorse has been launched by the Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) to help out.

    “A Guide to Racehorse Ownership” is a 60-page online resource aimed to help existing and potential racehorse owners. It has been edited by former H&H racing editor Emma Berry.

    “Racehorse ownership can seem incredibly complicated to the newcomer but, until now, accessing impartial advice written in plain language by experts in their field has not been possible,” said Richard Wayman of the ROA.

    “Many owners have contributed to the advice contained in the document and I am very grateful that ROA members have been prepared to share their own experiences.”

    The Guide covers a broad range of subjects, designed to demystify racehorse ownership and make it more accessible to a wider audience.

    The sections include:
    Section 1 – History of British horseracing
    Section 2 – The racing industry
    Section 3 – Different types of racehorse ownership
    Section 4 – Buying a racehorse
    Section 5 – Costs of keeping a racehorse in training
    Section 6 – How to register as an owner and racing administration
    Section 7 – Once your horse is in training
    Section 8 – Having a runner: the owner’s raceday experience
    Section 9 – When a horse’s racing days are over
    Section 10 – The Racing Year and Glossary
