The Home of Horseracing Trust which is responsible for raising the funds to build the new National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art at Palace House in Newmarket is delighted to announce that the Peter O’Sullevan Charitable Trust is generously supporting the centre’s new Arena. This outdoor Arena will be a hub of activity every day, with at least two displays from former racehorses that will be stabled on site. The Arena will allow Retraining of Racehorses Charity to give visitors an insight into the process of retraining a racehorse and showcase the skills they can go on to develop once their racing days are over.
Racing only operates to the standard it does thanks to the multitude of people who work tirelessly behind the scenes. This week, christened National Stable Staff Week, has been created to recognise and celebrate the achievements of those who make great sacrifices and devote themselves unconditionally to the sport.
