It was created to assist racing globally to contribute to society by improving the lives of its people and communities. An international steering group has been driving forward activity since and now charitable status is being pursued.

This is an exciting time to join TfRI as it establishes itself and delivers its three-year strategy. The charity will develop its role and influence to make a positive difference to the sport and stakeholders, both human and equine, across the globe, helping to enhance horseracing’s social licence. As well as having a broad business background (and an interest in horseracing), candidates will have a strong understanding of the horseracing industry globally, an ability to build stakeholder interest and leverage financial support.
