Racehorse Owners Association Gold Standard
Bangor-on-Dee Racecourse received the ROA Gold Standard from the opening of its new Owners and Trainers Facilities in 2017, and again in 2018, 2019 and 2022. No standard award was issued during the pandemic in 2020 and 2021.
Bangor-on-Dee also won Small Racecourse of the Year in 2018.
We wish to provide the best facilities possible for our Owners. If you have any queries, please address them to Jeannie Chantler by emailing email@example.com
Members of the Racehorse Owners Association, who are part of the ROA Owners’ Badge Scheme are offered two Owners & Trainers badges every raceday at Bangor-on-Dee when not racing behind closed doors.
The ROA has produced a useful handbook – A Guide to Racehorse Ownership. This is a free, comprehensive resource, designed for existing and potential racehorse owners alike. The Guide covers a broad range of subjects, designed to demystify racehorse ownership and make it more accessible to a wider audience.
Who can become a new owner?
Anyone over 16 years of age (applicants aged 16 or 17 require a personal guarantee from a currently registered owner) can apply. Every applicant will be subject to identity and credit checks and have to be approved by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA).
