DEVELOPING THE NEXT GENERATION IN RACING
Young Professionals in Racing Limited (YPR) is an exciting network which connects racing enthusiasts and provides a stepping stone into the sport for newcomers.
Members sign up for $100 per racing season (twice per year) and are then invited to attend race day functions, trackwork breakfasts, networking nights, horse sales, stable tours, punting previews and more, free of charge. YPR members also receive a regular e-newsletter featuring important industry updates, discounts from partners and other opportunities.
Backed by Racing NSW and governed by an independent board of dynamic, young professionals (pictured right), YPR is passionate about ensuring the next generation is involved in every facet of Thoroughbred horse racing. YPR events also provide a great opportunity to make connections with like-minded young professionals and future leaders.
