If you are an avid sportsman, you enjoy a day at the races or you pride yourself at the thought of being able to say 'do you know I own a racehorse?' then read on - did you know you can own a racehorse from as little as £500 pounds?
Either on your own or with friends, staff, colleagues and perhaps even you and your neighbouring business Park Farm Racing can help you get involved in the thrill of thoroughbred horse racing.
Racehorse ownership is also a truly unique birthday or anniversary gift for your loved one so please contact us for further details.
Your entry to the exciting world of horse racing can start at The Park, Orton, where we are looking for some exciting new owners to join Martin Todhunter at our friendly yard. Whether you would like to get 20 friends together to make up a syndicate, lease a horse or even consider sole ownership we would like to know!
The facilities at The Park compare favourably with any other yard in the North of England. There is 80 acres of grassland, a variety of gallops, acres of moorland and indoor and outdoor schooling facilities.
There is the initial purchase cost of your horse, each syndicate member paying their share. For example a syndicate of 20 people could purchase their syndicate horse for £500 each, with weekly training and racing costs of only £25 per member! Each member is responsible for their share of the keep, training and race costs.
The syndicate will be registered at Weatherbys (British Horseracing's central administrator) with each member registered as part owner in the horse.
The syndicate will run for one year. Any prize money is credited to the syndicates account at Weatherbys and will be distributed with any surplus at the year end. We will arrange stable visits for you to come and see your horse being exercised and trained.
Now for the fun bit! On race days 6 members, in turn, will receive a complimentary badge for entrance to the racecourse, we will arrange for discounted badges for others who wish to attend whenever the horse is in action.
When the horse is running you will enjoy owner privileges such as being able to watch your horse being saddled, entry into the parade ring where you will meet with trainer Martin Todhunter and your jockey and then onto the winners enclosure if your horse is placed or wins.
Most of the courses have special owners' bars. Also during the day you will be able to meet and discuss the prospects with both the trainer and jockey as well as meeting other racing personalities, make new friends and thoroughly enjoy your day.
If visiting your horse on a regular basis is not be possible we will also keep you updated with a monthly newsletter, which will inform you of possible entries, how your horse is working and schooling at home and some photos for your album!
Many firm friendships are formed through syndicates, making a day at the races or trip to The Park an enjoyable and sociable experience.
We thoroughly look forward to hearing from you so if you are interested in owning a racehorse with Martin Todhunter then please contact the yard for further information.
