Horse Ownership: A Thrill Like No Other

Racehorse ownership. It’s an experience like no other, one that combines excitement, exhilaration, camaraderie, and the chance to experience the thrill of victory.

There are several options available to get involved as an owner. From sole ownership (owning 100 per cent of a racehorse), fractional and syndicate ownership (owning a percentage or shares of a racehorse with a group), leases and partnerships.

People who have attained any type of horse racing success through ownership often speak of the elation of seeing their horse cross the finish line first, whether it’s happens to be a big or small purse.

Here, you’ll find some of those stories, people who have discovered the adrenaline rush and enjoyment that horse ownership can deliver.
