Thoroughbred Owner Conference to return in July
OwnerView announced today that registration is open for its in-person Thoroughbred Owner Conference, which will be held at Saratoga Race Course in Saratoga Springs, New York, on July 25-26, 2022. This will be the first in-person Thoroughbred Owner Conference since 2019. The 2020 conference, which was scheduled to be held in Saratoga, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Bringing the owner conference to Saratoga has been a goal of ours for nearly three years, and we cannot wait to finally host our guests at one of racing’s most iconic tracks,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView. “Competing at Saratoga represents the pinnacle for any horse owner, and we thank the New York Racing Association for their continued support as we have worked on making this in-person event a reality.”
The conference will kick off with an opening reception at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame on Sunday, July 24. Panels will be held July 25 and 26 at the track’s 1863 Club, with topics ranging from the role of bloodstock agents and advisors to the process of selecting a trainer to safety best practices.
Registration information and the tentative conference schedule can be found at ownerview.com/event/conference. The deadline to register is March 30.
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.
