BAME – Opportunity in horse-racing

Careers in Racing (CiR), the dedicated careers marketing arm of the British Horseracing Authority (BHA), has announced the launch of a new programme designed to introduce young people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds to the horseracing industry.

Step On Track has been developed in response to the lack of BAME representation within some areas of British racing and aims to engage young people from ethnic minorities with Britain’s second largest spectator sport, as well as showcasing the varied and exciting career opportunities that it can provide.

The programme will take place during Black History Month in the October half term (26 – 30 October) and will include daily events including talks from inspirational racing figures, activities and the opportunity to go racing as a group at an appropriate point in the future.
