Racing Foundation

The Racing Groom website and hub have been jointly funded by the National Trainers Federation and The Racing Foundation.

We are grateful to the NTF Council for their support of this project to promote the valuable role of racing grooms. We would also like to express our gratitude to the trustees of the NTF Charitable Trust which facilitated funding from The Racing Foundation.

The Racing Foundation is passionate about their ultimate goal: supporting ways to make horseracing better for all of its participants.

They are a catalyst and funder of improvement. The Foundation’s strategy is to grant funds to ambitious and innovative projects that help to achieve a better sport for all. We are most grateful to the Racing Foundation for their support, vision and guidance.

Turning the core idea into Purpose, Ambition and Activity: This is how we tell our story.
