Phoenix Thoroughbreds welcomes new horse welfare board plan

PRESS RELEASE – PHOENIX THOROUGHBREDS WELCOMES NEW HORSE WELFARE BOARD PLAN

DUBAI – FEBRUARY 2020 – Phoenix Thoroughbreds welcomes British horseracing’s Horse Welfare Board’s five-year-strategic plan for the welfare of horses bred for racing.

The recently published strategy focuses on the ambition that every horse bred to race should lead – and be seen to lead – “a life well-lived”. The strategy includes traceability for horses bred for the sport, a strong focus on safety and wellbeing, a more confident and proactive approach to communications and the industry’s biggest-ever data project.

We believe that that this new plan reflects Phoenix Thoroughbreds own inherent principles in relation to equine welfare and the industry’s responsibility to ensure that all parties including trainers, racecourses, jockeys and wider staff are all able to play their part alongside a regulatory environment based on robust inspection, licensing and training.

We at Phoenix Thoroughbreds remain passionate about the thoroughbred industry as a whole and we are fully committed to supporting any initiatives that are able to make racing safer for horses and jockeys and all contributes to the high quality of life enjoyed by thoroughbred horses.
