Registration Opens for Third Thoroughbred Owner Conference

OwnerView, the Thoroughbred owner resource developed by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA), announced today that registration is open for the third edition of the Thoroughbred Owner Conference being held at Santa Anita Park, October 31 - November 3, 2016, the same week as the Breeders’ Cup World Championships.

Like its two predecessors, the upcoming conference is designed to educate, inform and entertain new, prospective and current Thoroughbred owners through a series of panels and social events.

This conference’s panels include business considerations for racehorse ownership, Breeders’ Cup winning owners, jockeys, trainers, and racehorses in Hollywood. Among the panelists are Bob Baffert, Richard Mandella, Art Sherman, Gary Stevens, Mike Smith, Laffit Pincay Jr., Dean Reeves, Barbara Banke, and John Amerman. 

As an added bonus, on behalf of the Breeders’ Cup, registration will include one Grandstand Reserved seating ticket for both Breeders’ Cup World Championships racing days on November 4 and 5.

“On behalf of The Jockey Club and TOBA, we are thrilled to be aligning the Thoroughbred Owner Conference with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships,” remarked Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView. “This event provides the opportunity to learn more about ownership and network with other owners and industry participants and executives from around the country in a fabulous setting.”

“The Breeders’ Cup World Championships attracts the best Thoroughbreds from around the world, and we’re delighted that attendees from the Thoroughbred Owner Conference will have the opportunity to experience our sport on two of its greatest days with thousands of other fans,” said Craig R. Fravel, president and chief executive officer of Breeders’ Cup Ltd.

“The Stronach Group is proud to host the Thoroughbred Owner Conference at Santa Anita,”
said Keith Brackpool, chairman of Santa Anita Park. “There is nothing that comes close to the thrill of owning a winning horse, especially one who wins here at Santa Anita. We look forward to sharing this beautiful venue with the participants who comprise one of racing’s most important constituencies.”

The owner conference social events include:

  • The Breeders’ Cup Post-Position Draw & Reception on Monday, October 31
  • Breeders’ Cup Breakfast Marquee near Clockers Corner on November 1
  • Conference Dinner & Reception on November 1
  • Lunch on November 1 & 2

  • Tour opportunities at the Rose Bowl stadium and Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden on November 3 along with an afternoon of lunch and live racing
  • Reserved seating for both days of championship racing, November 4 & 5

Registrations are being taken for the full conference at $750/person. For spouses and partners who are interested in attending just the social events, a registration for social events is available at $400/person. Both types of registrations include the Breeders’ Cup tickets.
