Horse On Free Lease

An opportunity to “try out” racehorse ownership at a low cost.

Strike Three being saddled at Huntingdon

Shareholding from 1st May 2019 to 31st October 2019 (six-month lease – no renewal)

£125 per 1% purchase, £600 for 5% and £1000 for 9%

Contact Phil Boyle for details and further information.

We have the option of bringing in a new horse from Ireland for the summer on a free lease which means that we send him back to his current owner at the end of the period unless we want to negotiate an extended lease.  He has run twice recently winning first time and finishing a close up 5th next time.  He is a 3-mile handicap chaser who likes good ground and he would be an ideal sort to have as a summer jumper.

Having won in Ireland, I suspect that he will be very capable of winning in the UK and he could be a lot of fun and hopefully will run several times over the summer.

Any prize money won (after trainer, jockey and VAT deductions) will be distributed to shareholders less 10% to be paid to the current owner and 10% to be retained as a management fee for the running of the syndicate.

This is an ideal way to try out ownership at a lower cost as 5% of this horse is cheaper than 2% of either of the other horses.

Benefits include:

  • Weekly shareholder email update covering all BG Racing horses and other news
  • Access to Phil Boyle, BG Racing’s Racing Manager, at all times
  • The opportunity to accompany Phil on his regular visits to the stables
  • A shareholder summer event with stable visit and lunch (additional fee to cover lunch)
  • Owners badges when the horse runs (where possible these are provided free of charge, but if lots of shareholders are attending there is sometimes a small charge)
  • Badge holders have access to Owners and Trainers Bar, often free meals, can walk the course and can access the saddling areas and the paddock, as well as the unsaddling areas and winners’ enclosure
  • Meet the trainer and jockey pre and post-race
  • Shareholders get their share of prize money (see above)
  • Any prizes won are balloted based on shareholding and distributed to shareholders.
