Syndicates have become the most popular way for people to get involved as racehorse owners, because you enjoy the full ownership experience at a fraction of the cost. One of the attractions is the social side of things, meeting new people, enjoying days out as part of a select group, and enjoying privileged access to racecourse facilities for owners.
We want as many people as possible get involved, and if you don’t want to commit a large sum of money up front, we offer a limited number of LEASE shares in each horse, so you don’t have to buy it outright.
If you BUY a share, you pay the purchase price, then an all-inclusive monthly fee to cover all training and racing costs. You get your share of all prize money won, and you also get your percentage of the sale proceeds when the horse goes to auction at the end of the syndicate term.
Please bear in mind that although we have sold horses at a significant profit in the past, buying a share should not be regarded as an investment, as no future value can be guaranteed.
If you choose to have a FREE LEASE, there are no upfront costs – you just pay the monthly fee for a fixed period, which covers your share of the training and racing costs. You still receive your prize money and full owner privileges, but when the horse is sold you don’t get a share of the sale proceeds.
All prize money is paid in full to owners (after Weatherbys have deducted the usual trainer and jockey percentages). Unlike many other syndicates, we charge no management fees, commission, or make any other deductions from your prize money!
Whether you buy or lease, you will get a guaranteed owners badge when your horse runs – you won’t have to rely on “the luck of the draw” in order to get a badge which often happens with larger syndicates and clubs.
You can go into the parade ring and the winners enclosure with your horse, have access to the owners and trainers bar, and receive any owners hospitality offered by the racecourse. It’s a great way to experience real racehorse ownership, and you wont be lost in the crowd as part of a huge racing club, because we keep our syndicates small and manageable.
