Imagine the roar of the crowd as your horse turns into the straight; the jockey jostles into position and drives the horse to push through to the finish with its head in front…

If you’ve been fortunate enough to experience the thrill of horseracing and, better still, backed a winner then you’ll already be familiar with the adrenaline rush it gives you. Well, imagine the thrill of knowing that you own the winning horse.

Racehorse ownership is no longer reserved just for the elite and there are many options available to help spread the costs, while still enjoying the full involvement of owning a racehorse.

There’s the fun of buying your horse, picking a name, choosing your colours, watching your horse train on the gallops and, of course, the thrill and anticipation of being in the paddock before and after a race, listening in as your trainer discusses race tactics with your jockey.

Watching your horse run is exhilarating from the moment the stalls open, or the tape goes up. Win or lose, the experience is electrifying and, by owning a racehorse, you’re right in the thick of it.

To help you find out more about the types of racehorse ownership, Racing For Change has created a new booklet: Get into Racehorse Ownership.

The booklet covers options including Racing Clubs, Leasing, Partnerships & Syndicates and Outright Ownership. It also outlines the Benefits of Ownership including Prize Money, Raceday Privileges, Racehorse Owners Association and Sponsorship Opportunities. There is a quick guide to Buying a Horse, Choosing a Trainer, the Cost of Ownership and what to expect on Race Day.

If you’re thinking about owning all or part of a racehorse, you can download a copy of the guide here.
