Pan American Conference

The Jockey Club partnered with O.S.A.F., a South American Association for the promotion of Thoroughbred racehorse breeding in South America, to host two Pan American Conferences, in 2015 and 2017. The conference was designed to foster communication and collaboration among Pan American nations and the rest of the world.

The Jockey Club Round Table Conference

The Jockey Club Round Table Conference features myriad topics and prominent speakers from the United States as well as many foreign countries. Many critical initiatives over the years have been conceived and/or announced at the Round Table Conference.


The need for a central resource to encourage Thoroughbred ownership was identified in the comprehensive economic study of the sport that was commissioned by The Jockey Club and conducted by McKinsey & Company in 2011. The OwnerView site was launched in May 2012.

There is no registration fee for the virtual conference series, but registration is required. For more information about the owner conference, please visit or contact Gary Falter at 859.224.2803 or

OwnerView is a joint effort spearheaded by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association to encourage ownership of Thoroughbreds and provide accurate information on aspects of ownership such as trainers, public racing syndicates, the process of purchasing and owning a Thoroughbred, racehorse retirement, and owner licensing.


Welfare & Safety of the Racehorse Summit

The Welfare and Safety of the Racehorse Summit, coordinated and underwritten by Grayson-Jockey Club Research Foundation and The Jockey Club and hosted by Keeneland Association, is designed to improve safety and soundness for the Thoroughbred racehorse.
