Race Horse Ownership
There are 3 main ways what you can become an owner of a racehorse
The most straight forward way of owning a racehorse. It means that you are the sole owner of the horse, you are responsible for all costs involved with the horse and you receive 100% of any prize money earned. You will enjoy a close involvement with the trainer and help in making any decisions regarding your horse. If the horse is un-named you choose the name of your horse and it will run in your own racing colours.
Syndicates, Partnerships and Co-ownership -
Co-Ownership of a racehorse involves the participation of more than one owner. One of the benefits of entering into a co-ownership of a racehorse is that the cost is split among the syndicate or group of people involved. Additionally, becoming a member of a syndicate can also be a sociable and enjoyable experience.
This is an ideal way to promote your company or increase brand awareness, for example your horse can carry your company name, which in turn is a really useful way of promoting your business while having the fun and excitement of racing.
For further information on ownership please see British Racing Authority website.
** You should never participate in racing with the expectation that you will make a profit either from betting or prize money. Instead, look upon the purchase of a share in a racehorse as an exciting interest in a unique sport. **
