Amazing Racing Syndicates was formed in 2015, but we’ve been running successful syndicates for nearly 30 years. In that time, we’ve enjoyed lots of success with horses we bought and syndicated for other commercial groups and for private partnerships.
You know that a day at the races is a great experience, but when you go as an owner it takes it to a whole new level – in fact it’s AMAZING! – hence the name “Amazing Racing”!
There’s nothing quite like the “buzz” of being in the grandstand as an owner, and watching your horses perform like the athletes they are. The anticipation and excitement make for a truly memorable day, and when your horse WINS, the exhilaration is AMAZING!
Our objective is to help people share the cost of owning racehorses, in small friendly groups, where everyone has the chance to get as involved as possible.
We try to treat owners as friends and partners, not as customers, but still maintain a professional, informative, and honest relationship with everyone in the syndicate.
Above all, we want you to enjoy being an owner. When you arrange it through us, owners can visit the stables more or less when they like – subject to the trainer’s availability – you don’t have to wait for organised group visits once a year (but we arrange them too!).
We do our best to ensure that our owners have great days out at the races, and hopefully a few winners. We can’t guarantee your horse will win, but we can guarantee that we’ll work hard with our trainers to try to get you into the winner’s enclosure!
We have an excellent track record in buying future winners, and then finding the right trainers who will get the best out of them. Our record speaks for itself – ALL OF THE FLAT HORSES WE HAVE SYNDICATED HAVE BEEN WINNERS!!
Buying the right horses is crucial, and unfortunately we see too many new ownership groups syndicating horses which have very little chance of ever winning a race.
Our success comes from the experience of buying horses for many years, so we’ve learned what’s important when deciding whether or not to make a bid – we also use our own judgement and don’t rely on bloodstock agents.
Of course, winners can’t be guaranteed, but our expertise in matching up the right horses with the right trainers certainly increases your chance of being successful on the racecourse.
Finally, we are not a “gambling” syndicate, but we will advise you when we think conditions are in your horse’s favour. Betting on our horses “blind” since 2015 would have returned a level stake profit EVERY YEAR.
We provide owners with a quality service, with good communication. You are kept fully informed about plans for your horse and its progress at home. When we can, we will take your preferences into account, but your trainer will have the final say about where and when the horse runs. We pay the professionals for their skill and advice, so we respect their opinions!
On race days we will arrange for owners badges to be ready for collection from the Owners & Trainers entrance, and one of us will normally be in attendance to meet you and help you enjoy the day.
You will be able to speak to the trainer and jockey before and after the race, and get a first-hand assessment of its performance. You will probably get their initial thoughts about future plans, and hopefully then get involved in the trophy presentation!
Our reports about the horse will always be honest and realistic – if it does not progress as well as expected, has an injury, or is unlikely to achieve the level of success we would expect, we will tell you the truth and discuss options with you at the earliest opportunity.
If your horse performs as well as we would hope, we will campaign it at the highest possible level, and give you the opportunity to see your horse race at top venues around the country.
