VET STUDENTS VISIT AINTREE
Students listen to Richard Linley, BHA Senior Course Inspector, talk about the different fences at Aintree
Liverpool vet students visited Aintree on 10th June, on a trip organised by Dr. Ellen Singer (a member of Aintree veterinary team and a Senior Lecturer at The School of Veterinary Medicine at Liverpool,) as part of their veterinary studies to learn more about horseracing, behind the scenes and the roles of racecourse staff, including the veterinary team.
Around 90 third year veterinary students from Liverpool School of Veterinary Medicine attended the trip to Aintree and had the privilege of walking sections of the course, looking at different fences and their construction. They also had a tour around the stables, veterinary facilities and a presentation from Andrew Tulloch, Clerk of the Course. Students then went on to enjoy the evening’s racing and post-race entertainment from Tony Hadley.
Students keenly took free Lovetheraces.com goodie bags, packed with fun and educational materials to help them with their evening at the races. One of the students, Mark Slevin is keen to establish a new horseracing society at the University of Liverpool and hopes that this day will inspire his fellow students to get involved.
If you’re a student at the University of Liverpool and would like to get involved with a new horseracing society please visit their Facebook page.
