The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre (BTRC) is delighted to announce the world’s biggest independent bookmaker, Betfred is kindly supporting a BTRC charity race day.
Held on Saturday, November 5, at Aintree Racecourse, near Liverpool, the ‘Betfred BTRC Day’ promises to be a spectacular day out.
The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre (BTRC) is the biggest in Britain dedicated to the retraining and rehoming of retired racehorses to give them happy and useful lives once their racing days are over and was the pioneer in the field when launched as the Thoroughbred Rehabilitation Centre 25 years ago.
To celebrate the BTRC’s 25th Anniversary, Betfred and Aintree are keen to promote the fantastic work the charity undertakes retraining retired racehorses, through the race day.
Caroline Davis, Betfred Sponsorship Executive said: “We are thrilled to be working with the BTRC. We already have a fantastic relationship with Aintree Racecourse and to combine one of our great race days with such an important cause is very exciting.
“We love horse racing and we are proud to be supporting the BTRC and all the important work they do for the welfare, rehabilitation, retraining and rehoming of retired racehorses.”
The day is also aimed at making race goers more aware of the journey racehorses face when leaving the world of racing.
BTRC Chief Executive, Gillian Carlisle added: “It is fantastic to gain the support of Betfred and we hope the day will be a celebration of retraining racehorses. It will not only be enjoyable to all but also will help people learn more about what happens to racehorses after their racing career has ended.
“We will have a variety of different retired racehorses present on the day and weather permitting we hope to demonstrate some of the new skills that they have learnt since their racing careers have finished. There will also be an opportunity for visitors to meet some of these horses. We hope you can come and be part of what promises to be a fabulous day of racing and a celebration of retraining.”
