Welcome to The Racegoers Club Owners Groups.
The Racegoers Club offers members the chance to experience the thrill of thoroughbred racehorse ownership by putting together limited Owners Groups of members to share in some magnificently bred horses on the flat and over jumps. Your dedicated Racegoers Club Owners Group Manager 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. By leasing our horses we are able to offer well bred horses placed with top trainers, at a fraction of the cost normally associated with racehorse ownership
Ownership Group Size
Shares are limited to 150-200 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 share in the ownership experience.
Keeping you informed
We arrange regular owner’s visits to see horses in training, giving the opportunity to see your horse up close on the gallops and in the stables. Owners will be talked through the horses 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.
When a Owners Group horse runs, owners are invited to enter a ballot for a complimentary owner’s badge. Winners are drawn the day before the race and, where possible, arrangements are made for owners’ badges to be available to purchase for all other Owners Group members.
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. Prize money is the icing on the cake for an ownership experience. Nothing is guaranteed with horses and sometimes just seeing your horse overcome adversity to make it to the racecourse is an achievement you can share. We can't guarantee your horse will win but the journey is what makes the experience so exciting. You will enjoy a share of the spoils, should you be that lucky!
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 their charge as it progresses and develops from bumpers or maidens through to their 3 year old campaign for flat horses or into their hurdling career on the jumps.
The club has had excellent success over the years, with 4 Royal Ascot runners and a 2000 Guineas contender. Our strike rate for won or placed horses is 32%, with 15% winners. We will never ask our members for additional funds, all costs are covered by one initial fee for a single season.
