The Northern Racing College (NRC) celebrates 35 years of service to the horseracing industry with an Anniversary Breakfast.
Since 1984, young people have gained entry to the racing industry via the Northern Racing College, nestled in the picturesque surroundings of Rossington Hall, near Doncaster. It opened its doors originally on 1st July 1984 as the South Yorkshire Apprentice Racing Training School to train young people of Doncaster but by 1995 became the Northern Racing College to reflect the increased scope, scale and standing of the enterprise. Many Foundation Course graduates return to gain further qualifications, progressing to become successful in various roles including as jockeys, coaches and Trainers.
Colonel Stephen Padgett, CEO, invited some of those who have been involved in the College to mark the 35 years of success at an Anniversary Breakfast on 1st July with the Chairman, Gerry Sutcliffe, current and past learners, and the team that continues to make NRC a thriving centre of excellence for racing.
Colonel Padgett explained “We have seen graduates achieve great success and we are immensely proud! The College continues to grow and improve its provision, delivering trained staff into horseracing. We are full of optimism and enthusiasm for the future.”
