ARO is the only Arabian Racing Authority in Britain, and operates with the support of the British Horseracing Authority.
As part of the acquisition, ARO CEO Genny Haynes, racing operations manager Willie McFarland and ARO official photographer, media and PR Debbie Burt, will remain in charge of delivering the published 2023 fixture list. The fixtures will cover a program of Arabian races that will take place on British racecourses.
said Haynes. “ARO is now in a position to develop new commercial revenue streams, with the aim of developing the sport’s profile within the UK.
Mark Spincer, director of ARC’s racing division, said that the company was “delighted” to have acquired ARO.
said Spincer. “Arabian races have sat alongside a number of our summer fixtures, and we look forward to working with Genny, Willie and Debbie to continue this and look for opportunities to grow the sport over the coming years.
