The International Thoroughbred Breeders' Federation bi-annual Conference, hosted by the ITBF and the British Thoroughbred Breeders' Association, will take place at Newmarket June 6-10. Last held in Lexington in 2018, the conference, which was slated to be held in Paris in 2020, was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Around 70 delegates from 23 countries across six continents are expected to attend. The programme of events takes place over a week and offers members an opportunity to network with other nations as well as raise breeding and wider Thoroughbred industry issues.
Kirsten Rausing, ITBF Chairman, said, “Over the years, through members meeting face to face at the Conferences, ITBF has been able to disseminate a vast and ever-increasing amount of equine information to benefit countries across the globe…We are delighted to be welcoming so many representatives from various ITBF member countries to Newmarket. This meeting is set to increase, by almost two-fold, the number of members who attended the last two conferences.”
