Press Release

  • Eight Forum members appointed to join Chair Simon Rowlands
  • First meeting to take place on Friday 4 September
  • Dedicated twitter, email and website established to encourage ongoing input from the betting public

Following an extensive recruitment process, the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), in conjunction with inaugural Chair Simon Rowlands, have announced the members who will comprise the first Horseracing Bettors Forum.

Eight members from well over 100 applicants have been selected to represent the betting public by the BHA and Simon Rowlands. The Forum members comprise a diverse range of ages, backgrounds and approaches to betting and horseracing and were chosen based on initial written applications followed by discussions with the Forum’s Chair.

The Forum will hold its first meeting on Friday 4 September at the BHA’s offices in High Holborn, London, and will then meet on a quarterly basis. The purpose of the Forum is to deliver proposals and recommendations to the BHA and the BHA Racing and Betting Group for developments to British Racing that would be of benefit to the wider community that bets on British Racing. It will also consider any proposals provided to it by the BHA for feedback on how they would be received by people betting on British Racing.
