The Thoroughbred Club will be running a two-day Careers Course on 13 and 14 November, to help those with a passion for racing and breeding, explore the large range of career and training opportunities available within the industry.
The unique course, which is generously supported by Weatherbys, the TBA and The Racing Foundation, will take place at Tattersalls Park Paddocks and will combine plenary sessions with a number of workshop style talks delivered by industry professionals.
Plenary sessions include:
- Breeding Industry Overview
- Stud management and careers on the stud
- Educational opportunities and continued professional development
- Careers at Weatherbys and British Horseracing Authority
- Racing Industry Overview
The workshops supporting the plenary sessions can be selected by delegates based on their area of interest and will provide a more in-depth insight into specific roles in racing and breeding. Representatives from the industry’s training facilitators will also be present including Darley Flying Start, National Stud, British Racing School and Careers in Racing.
The course programme will feature a choice of behind-the-scenes visits to leading industry establishments including:
- Cheveley Park Stud
- Newmarket Equine Hospital
- Tour of Tattersalls, followed by a visit to Amy Murphy’s Southgate Stables
- Godolphin’s Hamilton Hill Stables
Delegates will be invited to attend an evening drinks reception at the historic Jockey Club Rooms, offering the opportunity to view some spectacular pieces of horseracing history and art whilst networking with fellow delegates, speakers, and industry professionals.
The course is free of charge for all members of The Thoroughbred Club (membership starts from just £25 a year) and will be open to non-members at a cost of £50 for both days, or £30 for one day.
