Racehorse Owners Association


The Racehorse Owners Association promotes the interests of racehorse owners in Great Britain and has a membership of over 7,500. As one of the British Horseracing Authority’s shareholders, it plays a central role in British racing politics and finance.

The ROA has a Board of 16 members, who are elected through ballot amongst all members of the ROA membership. The current acting ROA President is Nicholas Cooper.

The ROA is funded almost entirely from membership income. Members pay £230 (including VAT) annually and for this they receive a host of wide-ranging and valuable membership benifits, whilst supporting the ROA and the aims of the association.

Interested persons are invited to read Jackson Parker's 'A history of the ROI' for further information about the background of the Association.

The ROA is a founder member of the Horsemen’s Group, an organisation which represents owners, trainers, jockeys, breeders and stable staff. The ROA was instrumental in launching the Horsemen’s Tariff Scheme to recommend minimum prize-money levels, and prize-money agreements. The ROA is also represented on a number of other Racing Bodies and Committies.

The ROA is run by a team of 6. The organisation now shares offices in High Holborn with the governing authority of racing, the British Horseracing Authority.
