The Jockey Club Press Release
LEXINGTON, Ky.—OwnerView announced today that the 2023 Thoroughbred Owner Conference will be held as a free series of virtual panels over 10 months. The conference series, hosted by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association and presented by Bessemer Trust, Stoll Keenon Ogden, and The Green Group, will be held on the first or second Tuesday of each month beginning in March.
“This new format began in 2021, and over the past two years it has been very successful in reaching new and existing Thoroughbred owners,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView.
This year’s panels will be more interactive, with videos, open discussions, and other enhancements. Panels will cover tried and true topics such as accounting and creating a business plan in addition to new topics such as handicapping for owners, buying at public auction, corrective surgeries, and claiming.
The conference panels will be streamed live, and attendees will be able to ask questions during the discussion via typed messages that will be addressed at the end of each panel. Replays of the conference series panels will also be made available.
For those who wish to review previous conferences, recordings of all 17 panels from the 2021 and 2022 virtual series and from previous live OwnerView conferences can be watched on the OwnerView YouTube channel, and there is a link to the 2021 and 2022 virtual series replays on the OwnerView website: Library of past panels from Virtual Conferences.
There is no registration fee for the 2023 live or recorded virtual conference series, but registration is required.

OwnerView is a joint effort spearheaded by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association to encourage ownership of Thoroughbreds and provide accurate information on aspects of ownership such as trainers, public racing syndicates, the process of purchasing and owning a Thoroughbred, racehorse retirement, and owner licensing.
The need for a central resource to encourage Thoroughbred ownership was identified in the comprehensive economic study of the sport that was commissioned by The Jockey Club and conducted by McKinsey & Company in 2011. The OwnerView site was launched in May 2012.
