Our consultancy adopts a joined up and bespoke approach to racing's needs offering business solutions to racing professionals from a "stable" that understands the racing industry.

Who we are...

We are a stable that blends racing knowledge with business expertise ensuring solutions both relevant to Racing and current in terms of business practices and methods.

As a stable, we bring a combination of pedigree and performance with an in-depth knowledge and specialisation across every field. We have contacts and good working relationships with many of racing's stakeholders and their affiliates, in tandem with expertise from the business and legal world that will add a different perspective.

We can supply consultants who will understand your needs and not waste valuable time trying to understand the language of racing. We will see projects through to completion and believe in following up on our work.

"Simply Racing assisted the EBF on recruitment and we found them to be insightful, efficient and great at communicating but above all, their knowledge of the racing and breeding industry meant they were in tune with the requirements of the role and the candidates' skills. They were a huge help to us”.
Kerry Murphy, European Breeders Fund CEO

Advantages

We can be cost effective, because we do not struggle to understand Racing and have an informed understanding of the needs and world of our clients.

We look at things from a Racing angle but bring professional standards and business savvy from worlds outside the sport.

We understand the politics of Racing first hand, with executive and board experience at the highest level.

We are flexible and bespoke.

We form trusted partnerships and help you do the same.

We ensure projects are followed through from start to finish, but also believe in the welfare and aftercare of the businesses we work with. So we ensure that there is review, accountability and follow up.

The Simply Racing team’s helpful mentoring, coaching and advice services combine an understanding of the racing industry with practical insight for people adapting to new roles or promotions.
