Racehorse Ownership

chilly market rasen 2

The Racegoers Club offers members the chance to experience the thrill of thoroughbred racehorse ownership in both codes of racing. Our aim is to provide the best value ownership experience at a fraction of the usual cost. We endeavor to have trainers across the country so that you are never too far away from the action.

Your dedicated Racegoers Club Owners Group Liaison will ensure all owners are kept regularly informed and have the opportunity to visit their horse in training at some of the finest stables in the country. We will never ask our members for additional funds, all costs are covered by one initial fee for a single season.

An Affordable Experience

Our horses are leased from their breeders, meaning the cost of purchase is not incurred by owners, with the horse running in the colours of The Racegoers Club Owners Groups throughout it’s time with us. Leases are usually for a minimum of two years, with an option for us to end the Owners Group at the end of the first season if performance has not been what we would expect. The minimum term means owners can follow the progress of their horses as they mature and progress.

Keeping you informed

We arrange regular owner’s visits to see your horse on the gallops and in the stables. Owners will be talked through the horse's training programme and get a behind the scenes look at some of the superb training facilities, seeing the care and attention that goes into preparing a thoroughbred for racing. The Owners Group manager will be in regular contact with updates on progress of the horse, running plans and race entries, ensuring owners always have the latest insight from the trainers and jockeys.

Ownership Group Size

Shares are limited to either 150 per Owners Group. With a limited number of share holders, our groups are friendly, informal and welcoming. All Share Owners can enjoy a detailed updates and an exciting in the ownership experience.

Owners Badges

When a Owners Group horse runs, owners are invited to enter a ballot for a complimentary owner’s badge. Anyone not fortunate enough to win a complimentary badge will be offered to purchase a discounted badge for the meeting.

Share Of Prize Money

Each Owners Group share holder enters into an agreement with The Racegoers Club to entitle them to a share of the prize money of each horse in their Owners Group, paid at the end of the season, after all invoices are received and the horse is no longer in training. 

Previous Success

The club has had excellent success over the years, with four Royal Ascot runners and a 2000 Guineas contender. We pioneered this form of racehorse ownership and with decades of experience, our longevity is testament to the fact we know how to introduce people to ownership. We provide a compelling and entertaining journey throughout the season to follow, whatever fate has in store. Its definitely true that with racehorse ownership, winning is certainly not everything.
