In his speech addressing British horse racing, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak wished good luck to all the finalists at the Thoroughbred Industry Employee Awards.
Posted on Twitter by the British Horseracing Authority’s account, Sunak said in a video: “I’m delighted that the thoroughbred industry employee awards are taking place in Yorkshire for the first time. For my visits to Middleham and Catterick racecourse both in my constituency I have seen the sheer hard work and dedication of all of British racing for the horses in their care.
“Tonight’s finalists exemplify all that is best about British racing and breeding. An industry which does so much for communities across our country. Generates over £4bn for our economy and showcases Britain on the global stage.
“I want to see British racing and breeding stay at the front of this global race in the years ahead. I wish the best of luck and congratulations to tonight’s finalists.”
