Crunchyroll is streaming the anime series as it airs in Japan. It describes the story as: 

The jockey curriculum at the Horse Racing School…

A school with incredibly difficult entrance requirements, where only one out of every ten to twenty applicants is accepted, and students need not just book smarts, but also physical and athletic abilities.

There, a boy who is a popular idol meets his real dream for the first time. A boy who grew up on an island dreams of spending his days racing with horses. A boy born in England is unsure of the path his parents have chosen for him, but still chooses to follow his dreams.

This is a story about boys who come to the Horse Racing School to pursue their dream of becoming a jockey, and what awaits them in the three years they spend there.
