Video presentations and photos from the fourth Thoroughbred Owner Conference, co-hosted by OwnerView and BloodHorse, are available available at ownerview.com/conference-videos and ownerview.com/conference-photo-galleries.
The owner conference was held Monday, October 30, through Wednesday, November 1, 2017, at the Hilton San Diego/Del Mar in Del Mar, Calif., to coincide with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which were run on Friday, November 3, and Saturday, November 4.
Attendees came from 25 states and four countries, and more than 70% of the approximately 235 guests were attending the conference for the first time.
The videos include the panel presentations, which featured discussions with prominent owners, trainers, jockeys, and other racing industry personalities, and the keynote address, which was delivered by Jeff Fager, Thoroughbred owner and executive producer of “60 Minutes.”
“Providing these videos will allow those who could not attend the conference to hear the insights shared by our panelists and enable conference attendees to review panels they may have missed or particularly enjoyed,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView. “Since its inception, the Thoroughbred Owner Conference has provided attendees with information on the various aspects of racehorse ownership, and we would like to thank all of our sponsors who supported us this year in Del Mar and made the event possible.”
A fifth edition of the conference is planned for the week leading up to the 2018 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky.
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.
