What is the Explorer Cadetship?

The thoroughbred industry is all about passion. For most people who work in the industry their passion starts with a love of horses. For others it starts with a love of the excitement that racing brings. One thing is for sure, once you work in the thoroughbred industry your love of horses grows to higher level.
