OwnerView to host national ownership conference in October


OwnerView, an industry-sponsored information website for Thoroughbred owners, will host a national two-day Thoroughbred ownership conference in October 2014 at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington, Ky.

The conference will feature panel discussions with prominent industry participants as well as an exhibit hall and several informational and educational networking events with owners and industry representatives. Additional details about the conference, including dates, will be announced in the coming weeks.

The event will be sponsored jointly by the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club, the Keeneland Association, the New York Racing Association, and the Stronach Group. The OwnerView website was launched in May 2012 by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders’ Association.

“Owners are the backbone of the Thoroughbred industry, and the future of our great sport is incumbent upon the energizing and engagement of current and prospective owners,” said Bill Thomason, Keeneland’s president and CEO. “Not only as a racing facility, but also as the world's largest Thoroughbred marketplace, Keeneland is proud to serve as the host for the first year of this unique event. We look forward to working with The Jockey Club, TOBA and our other track sponsors in the months ahead as we plan the agenda and make the necessary arrangements.”
