Race Horse owner’s day
Become a race horse owner for the day at a national race event!
Race Horse Owner’s Day
For the completely unique, unforgettable day, go horse racing but not just as a day out, make it truly special and become a racehorse owner for the day.
With your corporate membership you can treat your award winning team, your special loved ones; celebrate a special occasion or milestone, a group of friends or something different for the person that has everything!
As soon as you have confirmed your booking the experience begins, it’s not just the day of the race; you will get personal updates on your horse in training, his preparation for the race, so that you can share with your guests and build up to your day. You will always be kept completely informed just as an owner would be.
On the day of the race you will be met at the owners and trainers entrance by a knowledgeable member of the Gorcombe team who will be your host for the day. They will have your race cards and owners badges at the ready before guiding you through your day, taking you to the owners and trainers exclusive areas.
As the day progresses you will be introduced to your trainer Jimmy Frost, ex Grand National winning jockey and now successful race horse trainer, as one of the great characters in the sport Jimmy will be happy to chat with you about the day and any previous experiences he may have had in the racing world.
As the race build up starts you will be invited into the actual paddock along with the TV crews and other owners and trainers, to get a completely unique view of the horses and competition before the start of the race.
As the nerves and excitement start to build you will meet your jockey, mostly this is Bryony Frost when available; one of the most successful female jockeys’s of all time, first lady to win a Grade 1 race at the Cheltenham Festival, Jimmy’s daughter and most importantly great company! She will greet you with her smile and in her own free spirited way give you her view on the race along with her race tactics, before she mounts your horse and exits to the race track.
You will of course already have been shown the various on course bookies and tote should you wish to put a wager on your steed before the start of the race. You then have the choice of where to watch it, the owners and trainers exclusive area, the general grandstand, trackside to feel the thunder of the horses as they past, the finishing post or possibly even alongside the nervous trainer at this point!
If you should be lucky enough to have a horse finish in the frame it will be back to the paddock for the winner’s enclosure to greet your horse & jockey home and for personal photo’s of your experience, should you have actually won the race, you will have to receive the winner’s trophy from the sponsor! And the fun wouldn’t stop there either, as you would be whisked off to the winner’s lounge for a glass of bubbly, the chance to watch a replay of the race, maybe even laugh at yourselves on TV.
The trainer will do his best to come along and share this all with you along with answering any questions or possibly signing memorabilia for you. This truly is a unique experience to be involved in a professional sport, with larger than life characters meeting and chatting with them, making this a very rare opportunity to treat special people to a special day.
