OwnerView announced today that registration is now open for an in-person Thoroughbred Owner Conference, which will be held Wednesday, November 3, in Del Mar, Calif., to coincide with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships on November 5-6.
“Our monthly virtual Thoroughbred Owner Conference series has been enthusiastically received this year with more than 1,100 registrations, so we are excited to carry this momentum forward and return to hosting a live event during the week of the Breeders’ Cup,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView. “We are looking forward to again offering existing and prospective Thoroughbred owners the invaluable face-to-face networking opportunities that have made the Thoroughbred Owner Conference such a popular event since its inception.”
This year’s conference will include several panels of expert speakers as well as social events to facilitate networking. Attendees will also have the opportunity to purchase Breeders’ Cup tickets with registration.
Registration details can be found at ownerview.com/event/conference, and more information about the conference schedule and host hotel information will be posted on the OwnerView site in the coming weeks.
The virtual Thoroughbred Owner Conference series will continue on the first Tuesday of each month through December. The sixth session of the series, “Jockeys,” will be held on Tuesday, August 3, at 2 p.m. ET. It is sponsored by Airdrie Stud, Starlight Racing, and The Green Group. It will be moderated by former track announcer Tom Durkin, and panelists will include retired jockeys Donna Barton Brothers, Chris McCarron, and Gary Stevens.

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.
The need for a central resource to encourage Thoroughbred ownership was identified in the comprehensive economic study of the sport that was commissioned by The Jockey Club and conducted by McKinsey & Company in 2011. The OwnerView site was launched in May 2012.
