Sad Loss to the Equestrian Industry
The PRA would like to pay tribute to Roy Burek, Chairman of Charles Owen and Airowear, and long term sponsor of pony racing.
Roy was a pioneer of equestrian safety and a champion of pony racing. With Roy’s support through Charles Owen sponsorship, pony racing has grown and developed in GB to produce many of the top jockeys riding today.
Edward Gillespie, Chairman of the PRA, said “We are so sorry to hear Roy has died. This is a sad loss to the equestrian world. His long term support has ensured many children have enjoyed pony racing and been given the chance to ride at many racecourses. He will be missed and we send our condolences to his family”
