Two-time Olympian Boyd Martin joins with Japanese organisations to promote the retraining of racehorses
Tokyo, Japan: Two-time Olympian Boyd Martin is to host ‘retraining the racehorse’ clinics in Japan this December, in partnership with the National Riding Club Association of Japan (NRCAJ), the Japan Racing Association (JRA) and Godolphin, the global thoroughbred breeding and horseracing team founded by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Ruler of Dubai.

The partnership, which is the first if its kind in the region, will promote the versatility of racehorses and their ability to adapt to alternative careers after racing. It represents a significant move by those invested in the thoroughbred industry in Japan to promote the retraining of racehorses and ‘second careers’ for thoroughbreds.

What a stayer!!!

Albert(JPN) became the first horse to win the Stayers Stakes three years in a row.

And we can find many sources of stamina in his pedigree. 8-)
