The dam herself has won oner 7.5 furlongs as a 3-year old at Deauville, placing on numerous occasions in her 4 year racing career.  Whistle, the dam’s 5-yer old filly, recently sold for £130,000 making the prospects of this filly very interesting indeed.  Whistle won at Deauville on 30 November 2020 and is going from strength to strength.  We are in the process of working a deal to acquire the 2-year old as well.  The 2020 foal went through the sales at Newmarket for £46,000.

The Benefits of Racehorse Ownership

The thrill of enjoying racehorse ownership or a share in a racehorse is not as expensive as you might think and you don’t even need any prior knowledge, just a love of horses and a desire to be involved in one of the world’s most popular sports!

There’s nothing quite like the thrill of watching your horse gallop towards the finishing line! Heading into the winner’s enclosure to celebrate after your horse has won or finished placed is an amazing feeling! 

As well as the rush of the racing action, there’s the social scene where you’ll meet like-minded people at the races and on stable visits. There are a number of other benefits of owning your own racehorse.

The benefits:

    • Prize Money
    • Owners badges for race days
    • Regular stable visits 
    • Invites to Owners events
    • Trainer contact and insights
    • Updates on your horse through our Owners Portal 

Racing Partnerships and Syndicates

Owning a racehorse is not only for the very wealthy. Syndicates and partnerships give people from all walks of life the opportunity of the excitement of being a racehorse owner whilst sharing in the costs with other like-minded people, friends or work colleagues. Our racing syndicates are very straight forward and are a cost effective way of becoming a racehorse owner, sharing the enjoyment and ownership experience.


Company Ownership

As a business there are many perks to corporate racehorse ownership, including having the racehorse named after your company and the jockey wearing your corporate colours. Another benefit is the opportunity to entertain clients and staff at corporate and staff Race Day events with the added excitement of having your own racehorse running! There are excellent tax benefits to be had too with VAT on training fees and purchases all reclaimable. At Thorne Farm Racing we have the experience to assist you in getting the best from your investment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is ‘syndication’?

Syndication means sharing the cost of a horse between a group of people – and allowing each of those people to enjoy the excitement of ownership.

How much of a horse should I buy?

We can offer shares to suit all budgets, you should always be comfortable with the costs. We are transparent about the costs upfront and can help you find a suitable horse and enjoy the experience with other like-minded owners.

I want to involve family and friends – what should I do?

We can help and advise you in setting up a fun and friendly syndicate that works for you.

How do I ensure I get a horse that wins races?

There are absolutely no guarantees that your horse will win races.  We do diligently attempt to source horses which will have a high probability of winning a race, with trainers who will place them to win.  However, there is no way to ensure you will get a winner! Horses which have already won a race before are more likely to do so again.

How long will my ownership last?

Your ownership in your horse(s) will last for the term of the share period, which will be clearly outlined when you buy in to the syndicate.

How many times will my horse run?

We always guarantee you a minimum of one run from your racehorse during the share period.

However all share purchasers must be aware that we are dealing with live animals and as such, we cannot guarantee the horse you choose will win, or that they will earn prize money. Past performance of racehorses is no guarantee of future performance.  Also, we cannot absolutely guarantee your horse will race at any specific racecourse or will race with an even spread through the season.  This is the nature of racehorse ownership.  No refunds are available for part-share periods where the horse does not run, whatever the reason. Shareholders should be aware that some horses will take summer or winter breaks and may have many weeks off the track at a time – this is all part of owning a racehorse.

What happens if my horse gets injured?

It is an unfortunate reality of horseracing that your horse may become injured at some stage in its racing season. For minor injuries, shareholders just have to be patient and wait for the horse to recover.

What will be my colours/silks – can I pick them?

The colours will be those of the major share owner. To be able to pick the colours you need to own 50% or more of the horse.

Can I get the horse to run at my local racetrack?

We leave all racing plans to the person charged with getting the horse to win – the trainer.  He or she will decide where the horse will run and how often.

Can I own more than one horse?

Yes, you may own shares in a string of racehorses and therefore get plenty of thrills and value for money.

Can I contact other owners?

We hold regular events for owners, part-owners and syndicates to visit the yard and socialise.

Can I contact the trainer?

Yes, you can reach Nigel on the phone or by email. Trainers are busy people, training horses, travelling to the races and dealing with all their other clients. If you cant get hold of Nigel, leave a message or drop him an email and he will always get back to you. 

Can I speak to the jockey?

Yes.  When your horse runs you will be able to meet the jockey in the parade ring prior to the race.

Do I have a say in which races my horse runs?

No, that’s the job of the trainer – he knows the horse and will place them with the best opportunity to win races.

How do I get Owners badges?

Most racecourses provide a number of free owners badges per horse.  This can vary from course to course but is usually between 6 and 8 badges per horse. Owners badges can be collected at the racecourse from the ‘Owners and Trainers’ entrance and they allow you entrance to the racecourse for free or at a discounted rate.  They can be worth up to £80.00 each.

Are you approved?

In order to provide this service we strictly follow the Weatherbys and British Horseracing Board’s rules on co-ownership.
