Ownership

Whether you are a new or an existing owner wishing to get involved at any level of ownership, we can cater to your needs.

We often have horses already in the yard For Sale and welcome any enquiries, but we also attend all the major National Hunt Sales across England, Ireland and France.

The following paragraphs set out the various types of ownership that will allow you to enjoy the excitement of being a racehorse owner.

Sole Ownership
You will be the sole owner of the horse and as such, any costs and profits will be yours alone. We will have a one to one relationship and you will have a close involvement with any of the decisions regarding your horse. Apart from choosing your own racing colours you will also have the joy of naming your horse if he is not already named. 

Co-ownership
Co-ownership of a racehorse involves the participation of more than one owner and is an extremely cost effective way of ownership. Whether you choose to get involved as a group of friends or wish to have a share or shares, no matter how large or small there are 4 types of co-ownership:


  1. Joint Ownership can consist of between 2 and 12 individuals all of whom must become, or already be, registered owners. The horse(s) can run in either a joint ownership name or in the name of the individuals.
  2. Racing Partnership can consist of between 2 and 20 individuals of which at least 2 must become, or already be, registered owners. We can run and manage the partnership to provide hassle free ownership or alternatively one of the partners may wish to do so themselves.
  3. Company Ownership is in effect when your company owns the horse as a sole owner, but shareholders in the company participate as an owner through their shareholdings. This can be a great way of marketing your company and the horse(s) can also be sponsored by the company as a way of advertising.
  4. Leasing a racehorse involves ownership of a racehorse for a set period of time, possibly for just one race or for the horse’s entire racing career. Depending on the agreement between the lessor and the lessee the costs involved are only those which are incurred through the lease period.

 

Racehorse Owners Association

As an owner it’s definitely worth considering joining the ROA. For £230 a year there are some very worthwhile benefits

Thanks to our sponsorship agreement with Citibet owners who are VAT registered are able to reclaim all VAT costs incurred by their horse(s). For more information, please Contact Us.
