How much do you know about horseracing?
West Yorkshire-based executive travel service Groupclass have teamed up with leading racehorse trainer Ann Duffield to offer local businesses & visitors to Yorkshire unique insights into the world of British horseracing.

Groupclass Taster Days start by rendezvousing at some of the region’s premier hotels & restaurants, from where clients will be chauffeur driven to Ann’s yard in Constable Burton, right at the heart of Yorkshire’s racing country.

Following a private tour of the stables & facilities, the party can then enjoy breakfast with Ann & meet her husband, racing legend ‘Gentleman’ George Duffield – the ninth most successful British jockey in the history of the sport.

Among the topics covered in a question & answer session will be: A brief explanation about how the handicapping system works, horse conformation & what to look for in the paddock before placing a bet at the races, how to get involved in racehorse ownership & syndication.

Groupclass director Tony Whitfield explains: “The Taster Days are designed to widen the appeal of racing within the corporate sector. By teaming up with Ann & George, we can ensure employers not only provide their clients & staff a fabulous day out, but also gain professional guidance to the array of benefits the sport offers on a business level.”

Ann expands: “In working with Groupclass to arrange these special taster days, we are not only helping to break new ground in corporate race-day entertainment but, also offering the chance for companies to explore the concept of attracting attention from potential clients who are already involved with racing.
