It’s seven years since the European horseracing association, called European and Mediterranean Horseracing Federation (EMHF), was set up, just in Stockholm in the presence of the IFHA chairman Louis Romanet. Since then EMHF has gone both stronger and bigger.
Now there are 28 members with Greece as the latest one. 20 of them will be represented in Stockholm (or rather in Upplands Bro). Some of the absent members have other things on therir minds, like Lebanon, Libya and Ukraine. The meeting will take place at Villa Aske, not far from Bro Park.
Besides the meeting the delegates will visit Solvalla and Elitloppet on Sunday and the Classic races (the racecard will contain both 2000 Guineas and 1000 Guineas) at Bro Park Monday evening.
The meeting seems to be well prepared by EMHF secretary general Paull Khan. There are 16 items on the agenda, from many reports from the horse racing world to elections to the ExCo (Executive Council). As always with Brian Kavanagh from Ireland in the chairman’s seat.
Some of the earlier board members of EMHF. Hopefully the new board will be less male dominated
