Owner Conference Videos and Keynote Speech now Available Online

Videos of all panels and presentations from the fifth Thoroughbred Owner Conference, including the keynote address by Jon Miller, the president of programming for NBC Sports, are now available at

The owner conference, which was co-hosted by OwnerView and BloodHorse, was held Tuesday, October 30, through Thursday, November 1, 2018, at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky., to coincide with the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, which were run on Friday, November 2, and Saturday, November 3.

Approximately 250 people attended the conference, and guests came from 30 states and Canada. In addition to Miller’s address, the videos feature discussions with prominent owners, trainers, jockeys, and other racing industry personalities.

“We are happy to post videos from the Thoroughbred Owner Conference each year so that both our conference attendees as well as those who were unable to attend are able to benefit from the insights shared by our speakers,” said Gary Falter, project manager for OwnerView. “Throughout the years, our guests have indicated that our panels have been educational for all types of owners.”

A sixth edition of the conference is planned for the week leading up to the 2019 Breeders’ Cup World Championships at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia, Calif.

OwnerView is a joint effort spearheaded by The Jockey Club and the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association to encourage ownership of Thoroughbreds and provide accurate information on aspects of ownership such as trainers, public racing syndicates, the process of purchasing and owning a Thoroughbred, racehorse retirement, and owner licensing.
