RACEHORSE OWNERSHIP: 101 Saturday, May 20, 2017 – 9:00 a.m. Canterbury Park Grandstand – Mezzanine Level
This initial ownership seminar of the 2017 live race meet at Canterbury Park is certain to hold something for everyone! Whether you have been an owner for years, are just new to the industry or are considering getting involved with a Thoroughbred of your very own, there is always something to learn! Our seminars are all designed to offered plenty of opportunities for you to get answers to your questions.
Join us at 9:00 a.m. for coffee and doughnuts while we enjoy watching the morning training taking place on the track. We’ll have a number of individuals available who will be able to explain what is happening and answer your questions. It’s exciting to be able to see what the horses go through in preparation for the crowds’ racing enjoyment.
We’ve invited several local experts to join us and will be covering nearly every aspect of racehorse ownership. You’ll learn more about the important legal and accounting considerations, licensing requirements to be an owner, ways to acquire a horse, ownership options, selecting a trainer, training and racing, veterinary care, and retirement responsibilities. We will also have a panel of owners available to share their experiences and answer questions.
Immediately following the seminar, you will have the chance to meet with MTA members who have partnership opportunities available. Partnerships can be a great way to get into the game and you’ll find that partnerships can have a wide variety of membership options.
