Classic Racing is a racing syndication service, offering an affordable ownership interest in thoroughbred racehorses.

As an owner with Classic Racing you can expect a very high level of personal service, keeping you regularly informed on the progress of your bloodstock and running plans. We pride ourselves on keeping owners informed at all times and through direct contact. You will not find hotlines or recorded messages at Classic Racing.

We hope that you will enjoy the experience of watching your horse run and maybe celebrating a big win with your co-owners. We at Classic Racing will be at every race, welcome you to the course and be with you in the parade ring where you can hear the latest thoughts of your trainer just prior to the race.

We also arrange regular visits to see our horses in training, giving owners the opportunity to talk to the trainers directly. There is also an annual day out for all owners at Woburn Stud, where you can learn more about the breeding, development and racing of thoroughbreds and see the broodmares, foals and yearlings as well as one or two of our Classic Racing horses enjoying a well-earned holiday in the Bedfordshire countryside.

How it works

Classic Racing offers shares in a number of horses. The number of shares available per syndicate varies between 10 and 20. Each owner enters into an agreement with Classic Racing to share in the purchase cost and training fees. Owners will be registered at Weatherby’s and will receive their percentage of prize money and the proceeds from the sale of the horse on winding up. Free badges to the racecourse will be available to all owners to see their horse run.

Owners have the opportunity to see their horse at Woburn Stud or the trainer’s yard.

The Classic Racing team keeps in very close contact with trainers,regularly visiting the yards in order to carefully monitor the progress of the horses. We want to ensure that every owner enjoys the involvement in racehorse ownership to the full. The Team’s aim is to manage your bloodstock as professionally as possible in order to maximise the horses’ potential.

The duration of each syndicate generally lasts for the two year old and three year old seasons. The horses may be sold at any time throughout the duration of the syndicate if an attractive offer has been accepted. Decisions such as extending the syndicate into the horse’s four year old season or
selling the horse, are taken by the owners.
