Shaping The Future Of Irish Racing Forum

ITBA Southern Region Forum on Irish Racing

  • In what was a seminal meeting, representatives from every spectrum of the Irish racing industry gathered at the Horse And Jockey Hotel in the equally aptly named town of Horse And Jockey in Co. Tipperary on Tuesday 1st March for a ground-breaking Forum organised by the Southern Region of the Irish Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association.
  • Billed as an opportunity to ‘Have Your Say’ the Forum did just that, as the lecture theatre was filled to capacity by 200 racing enthusiasts, most of whom were industry professionals involved at the highest level. The panel, too, had been well-chosen, guaranteeing innovative ideas and the assurance all suggestions would be considered and implemented if possible by the relevant bodies. It is the first time such an open floor has been offered to such influential industry leaders and enthusiasts.
