The Northern Racing College Annual Show should become a fixed event in Doncaster's calender says Caroline Flint.
Caroline, who joined staff and trainees at the first Annual Show, says Doncaster should promote the College as a centre of excellence.
Said Caroline: "This Annual Show is long overdue. I know this will become a fixture in the Doncaster calendar.
"As home to the St Leger classic horse race, Doncaster's heritage is linked to the racing industry. The Northern Racing College is central to the future of the racing industry.
“There are only two racing colleges in the country, one in Newmarket and one here in Doncaster. Today, I met trainees from Somerset and Scotland as well as from Goole and Doncaster. This college is outstanding and we should celebrate its work.”
Said Chief Executive Colonel Stephen Padgett: "“Caroline has been a valued supporter and friend of the Northern Racing College for years. She is as excited as I am about the initiative we’ve started this year, our Doncaster Equine College programme, that will provide general equine FE courses for learners from around Doncaster.
“I was delighted to welcome her to our first Annual Show today, raising awareness of DEC and promoting the excellent facilities we have available for hire. She was impressed to see so many classes, competitors and trade stands at what will be an important event attracting competitors from across the region every year from now on.”
