Under the banner of Black History Month, the British Horseracing Authority has launched a new initiative called ‘Step On Track’. The programme is designed to introduce young people from Black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds to the varied and exciting career opportunities in the horseracing industry.
The programme will take place via Zoom during the October half term (26 – 30 October 2020). Daily events will include including talks from inspirational racing figures, activities and the opportunity to go racing as a group once safe to do so.
Sulekha Varma, Clerk of the Course at Aintree Racecourse and one of the speakers on the scheme, said:
“I’m really looking forward to taking part in Step On Track and talking to those on the scheme about how enjoyable and rewarding working in racing can be.
“As an industry it’s given me the chance to fulfil my love of racing as well as providing a varied, exciting and fulfilling career, and it will great be to share these experiences with those who are new to the sport.”
