Racehorse owners heading to October’s inaugural Thoroughbred Owner Conference in Lexington, Kentucky, are going high-tech and will receive a free iPad mini on arrival.
Attendees who register for the conference by August 15, will receive an iPad mini as a bonus upon arrival at the conference, from October 13 to 16.
“The iPad mini is our way of thanking individuals who have shown such enthusiastic support of our first Thoroughbred Owner Conference,” said Gary Falter, vice president of operations for OwnerView.
“This conference epitomizes OwnerView’s mission to attract and retain owners in Thoroughbred racing, and we’ve built an agenda designed to be educational, informative, entertaining, and rewarding for all attendees.”
The iPad mini will be pre-loaded with a schedule of events, biographies on all speakers and panelists, as well as maps and directions to various venues.
Among the activities planned for the four-day conference are panels featuring successful owners discussing their approaches to ownership, sales and bloodstock professionals discussing the search for talented equine athletes, behind-the-scenes tours of some of the world’s leading breeding operations, social events where attendees can gather to meet and network with other owners and industry professionals, a keynote address from Hall of Fame golfer and thoroughbred owner Gary Player, and a VIP day of racing at Keeneland Racecourse.
The conference is being hosted by OwnerView, the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association, and The Jockey Club at Keeneland Race Course in Lexington. Designed for both experienced and prospective owners, the event is being co-presented by Del Mar, Keeneland, NYRA, and The Stronach Group.
