British horse racing is enjoyed by 6 million spectators every year and is the second most popular sport in Britain behind football. This popularity could not be achieved if it were not for the racing grooms employed in racing yards.
“More than 6,000 racing grooms provide a vital role in providing constant first class care and attention to more than 14,000 racehorses in training. It is essential that this skilled and dedicated workforce is supported, rewarded and developed.”
