BHA Publishes 2015 Annual Report & Accounts
Following publication of BHA 2016 Budget Guide this December, as part of Nick Rust's aim “to ensure that the BHA is more open, transparent and in touch with the needs of the sport it serves", the BHA has now published and made available, their 2015 Annual Report.
A full copy is available on the BHA website.
Upon release of the publication the BHA stated:
Overall, the report shows that in 2015 the BHA delivered more services and played its part in contributing towards a better year for British racing, while generating a small financial surplus.
Nick Rust, Chief Executive:
“I am delighted to introduce the BHA’s annual report and accounts for 2015.
“As the report shows, 2015 was a better year for British racing and overall the BHA has played its part in delivering increased activity to support our industry while returning the BHA to a sound financial footing.
“We look forward to continuing to do all we can to deliver our vision of a brighter future for our sport, our horses and our people.”
Steve Harman, Chairman:
“In 2014 and 15, our sport came together to develop an ambitious strategy for growth – to grow racecourse attendances, ownership, horses in training, betting and viewing, underpinned by a strong foundation in integrity and regulation, equine welfare, and improved staffing and training.
“There is still much to do but the initial signs are encouraging, including achieving strong ministerial and cross-party political support for the replacement of the outdated Horserace Betting Levy".
