The morning is to take place on Saturday 18th May 2019 and will see a nationwide promotion of trainers and in-turn racehorse ownership. Over 30 trainers have signed up to participate at this stage.
The event will allow trainers host existing and potential new owners, showcase their facilities and raise their profile nationally.

HRI will also be actively involved in assisting all trainers to maximise their individual open days, while a national PR and marketing campaign will aim to promote and raise the profile of trainers and racing nationally. All those attending the morning will have to pre-register with HRI so numbers attending can be limited.
