An interesting day learning behind-the-scenes of racing!
Our third visit to Weatherbys was as informative as usual and around 40 Heart of the South owners joined us on this trip.
Weatherbys administrate racing are responsible for keeping the stud book, registering horses, trainers, jockeys and owners. They also act as racing’s bank, keep all breeding and form records, provide racecards etc. They do a fantastic job and as you can see have plenty of information to store of each horse, trainer, company and racecourse.
It was a fascinating trip for both ourselves and the owners and it was interesting to hear the procedures that take place behind racing.
After our visit to Weatherbys we went onto Towcester Racecourse for their evening meeting and a few owners were fortunate to back a winner or two – a successful day all round!
