Racing Future Ideas Contest

Racing Future Ideas ContestAfter our Ideas Contest winner Mike Caggiano recently shared his exciting experience as an owner, we re-visited some of the many great ideas that were submitted during our contest. Our challenge, as we saw it in 2010, was to find new ways to help our sport have a future. Hundreds of people showed creativity and took time to submit their ideas, well-known supporters of our sport helped to promote the contest online, and we published a summary of results in August 2010. These ideas, submitted by some of the best minds in horse racing, are as relevant now as they were then. Read the Racing Future Summary Report.
