Horse Racing Ireland has launched a stand-alone website to promote racehorse ownership. The website provides potential owners with all they need to know to begin, including searching potential trainers by location and cost; design application for racing colours; a section for owners based outside Ireland; and details on racing syndicates and clubs. The site also includes a promotional video.
Amber Byrne, HRI owner recruitment manager, said, “One of the key pieces of feedback from the Horse Racing Ireland Owner Survey in 2016 was the need for additional information to be available to owners starting out. This is the first stand-alone website HRI has introduced solely for racehorse owners. The new website acts as a single online information source with a wealth of material displayed in an easy to read format. While new and existing owners can, of course, always contact us directly, we hope www.racehorseownership.ie will become an important promotional asset for the industry. We are looking forward to adding more interactive features to the site down the line which should benefit owners, trainers and breeders.”
