OwnerView announced today that registration is now open for the sixth Thoroughbred Owner Conference, which will be held at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif., from Monday, October 28, through Wednesday, October 30, 2019. The conference will once again coincide with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which are scheduled to be held November 1-2 at Santa Anita Park.
The goal of the Thoroughbred Owner Conference, which is co-hosted by OwnerView and BloodHorse and presented by Breeders’ Cup and The Stronach Group, is to educate, inform, and entertain new, prospective, and current Thoroughbred owners through a series of panels and social events. At this year’s conference, panels will include discussions pertaining to racing syndicates, aftercare, racing horses at the claiming level, jockeys’ preparations before races, and pedigrees. The full schedule of events is available at ownerview.com.
In addition to the panels, conference attendees will have the opportunity to attend Breeders’ Cup events such as the Rood & Riddle Post-Position Draw and reception on Monday, October 28, and workouts from the Breeders’ Cup Trackside Breakfast Marquee. Attendees will also be able to attend networking lunches and dinners especially for conference guests.
“The third Thoroughbred Owner Conference was held at Santa Anita Park in 2016 and was met with rave reviews, so we are looking forward to bringing this popular event back to Arcadia,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView. “We appreciate the continued support of Breeders’ Cup and The Stronach Group in our efforts to educate new, existing, and prospective Thoroughbred owners.”
Reserved seating for both days of the Breeders’ Cup is included with conference registration, and a limited number of Breeders’ Cup tickets with dining options are available. The host hotel is the Courtyard Marriott Los Angeles Pasadena/Monrovia. More information about the conference, registration, and hotel accommodations is available at ownerview.com.
OwnerView is a joint effort spearheaded by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association to encourage ownership of Thoroughbreds and provide accurate information on aspects of ownership such as trainers, public racing syndicates, the process of purchasing and owning a Thoroughbred, racehorse retirement, and owner licensing.
The need for a central resource to encourage Thoroughbred ownership was identified in the comprehensive economic study of the sport that was commissioned by The Jockey Club and conducted by McKinsey & Company in 2011. The OwnerView site was launched in May 2012.
