The horse racing industry encompasses many interdependent industries - from commercial breeding and race horse ownership, to racetrack operation, and more recently, teletheatres. Horse racing can be characterized as a symbiotic relationship between horsepeople (breeders, owners, trainers, and jockeys-drivers) and racetracks. The viability of the industry as a whole is a product of the success in each of the respective sectors. The key driver in this relationship is the money wagered on racing. The UK horseracing directory aims to introduce customers to horseracing and expand the industry.
