BHA Graduates Course

2nd July 2018 – 13th July 2018

The British Horseracing Graduate Development Programme has been running for over 20 years, providing an invaluable source of talent to the sport and its supporting industry.

Around 300 graduates have completed the Programme and many are now key figures in racing. Graduates from previous years’ work in management positions in racecourses, bookmakers, the trade press, trainer’s yards, studs, bloodstock sales and  the British Horseracing Authority to name a few. A passion for horseracing is a must but experience is not essential.  If a career in an exciting, high-profile and challenging industry sounds appealing, then the Graduate Development Programme may be of interest to you.
