Together for Racing International (TfRI), a global alliance to promote and progress education, community engagement, and career opportunities in the thoroughbred industry has launched its website

Chaired by Chris Grant, TfRI has been developed through a network of global steering committee members from Australia, France, Great Britain, Ireland, Japan and the United States.

It was formed after a 2019 education forum hosted by Godolphin in Newmarket were attendees collaborated on a global vision and strategy to grow and sustain the thoroughbred industry.

TfRI focuses on three pillars for development: education, community engagement, and workforce. Its website includes resources and inspirational content that will inform students, educators, parents and industry members about available opportunities for learning and involvement.

The website will also serve as a networking medium for countries to collaborate and support the progression of emerging programmes.

Rob Hezel, Chief Executive of The Racing Foundation, said: “The Racing Foundation is delighted to have been involved with this work and excited about the launch of the website and the impact it can have.

“We are already seeing the benefits of the Godolphin-inspired focus on community engagement activity in the UK and hope that inspiring this work internationally will support and enhance national efforts, so racing is seen as a valued contributor to society globally.”
