Racing Ahead

The first two Leaders Forum of the new year were hosted by new members The Jockey Club at their jewel in the crown venue Cheltenham Race Course

The topic of the session was Every Leader has a Great Story. An opportunity to glimpse behind the leaders of some of the regions best businesses. Some great stories and opportunities for people to share a little bit about their journeys and what has driven them. 

Lee Moulson, Regional Sales Manager, The Jockey Club gave the group an overview of The Jockey Club and Cheltenham Race Course. He provided some key facts, for example that horse racing is the second biggest spectator sport in the UK, the second biggest contributor to GDP of any sport and the second biggest employer in sport.

The Jockey Club is the largest commercial organisation in British horseracing, with a turnover in 2013 of £159m however as it is governed by Royal Charter, all profits it makes are reinvested back into the sport. Once responsible for the governance and regulation of British horseracing, today it owns 15 of Britain's famous racecourses, including Aintree, Cheltenham and Epsom.  Some of that profit can now be seen being spent in the £45m development at Cheltenham.
