Weekly Update 26-11-19
By BG Racing Syndicates On 26th November 2019
Now that most of my invoicing and share paperwork for renewals is out of the way, I need to get some sales and marketing done. This is an ideal time to join BG Racing and the prospectus providing full details of the new share options and background on each horse is now on the website here. Please contact me, via the website contact page if you want any information on any of the options.
I am aware that all the horses shareholding options run at the same time and for many people, a full year’s outlay in one hit is a pretty significant commitment, so please also consider making payments to me via monthly standing order across the year, if this suits you better.
In the sections below, I quote share prices for 1% purchases and discounts for 5% and 10% purchases. If you would like shareholding in multiple horses that adds up to more than 5% or more than 10%, then please contact me as I may be able to offer some discount even if your share of a specific horse is less than 5%.
“Bruv” is back in at Neil’s and walking every day on the horse walker. His current valuation will look a bargain by the end of the year if he returns to the racecourse at the expected level, but the valuation has to be the best estimate of the price we would obtain if selling now.
This means that new shareholding can be purchased at £65 per 1% share (£300 for 5% and £550 for 10%). The training fees for November 2019 to October 2020 will be £250 per 1% share (£1150 for 5% and £2100 for 10%).
Fr Humphrey / Mount Oliver
It was a huge thrill to see Fr Humphrey win at Huntingdon recently and he is now being prepared for the valuable veterans’ chase series final in March. We are cracking on with Mount Oliver who will hopefully give us some chances to go racing in the interim and I will upload the race diary for last week to the website asap.
Fr Humphrey and Mount Oliver are still available on a two horses for one share price option until 30th April 2020. With Fr Humphrey now qualified for the big prize-money veterans chase final and with Mount Oliver hopefully running at least 5 times in the same period.
Fees to end of April 2020 are £270 for 1% (£1250 for 5% and £2,250 for 10%) and this gets you ownership of both horses and full share of any prize-money won (which will be significant if Fr Humphrey runs well in the veterans chase final).
Anjaal / Silver Miss Filly
Our Anjaal filly paraded well at Ascot on Saturday. The fees for her will cover the period to 31st December 2020 and will be £240 per 1% share (£1,100 for 5% and £2000 for 10%).
Yeats / Alverstone Filly
The Yeats filly is working away at Neil’s. She will run one or two bumpers at the back end of this season and then go novice hurdling at the start of next season and my aim is to ensure we have the option of two years with her. Whilst she may only run three or four times between 1st November this year and 31st October next year, she really could be anything and whilst she might end up being quite ordinary, she could be a top-level performer able to contest big races. She will be £250 per 1% share (£1150 for 5% and £2100 for 10%) covering the period to 31st October 2020.
Ascot Discover Racehorse Ownership Weekend
We had a stand at Ascot’s Discover Racehorse Ownership weekend on Friday and Saturday and the Anjaal filly paraded on Saturday and was very well behaved. I was interviewed by Rupert Bell on Ascot TV which was shown throughout the course and played over the tannoy.
Over the two days, I had numerous positive communications and handed out loads of brochures and the feedback from visitors was hugely positive.
From The Stables
Last Tuesday, Neil’s Harbour Force was unplaced, whilst Viking Ruby unseated her rider at the last when challenging at Fakenham. Michael’s Lawn Ranger ran a decent race, but was just outside the placings. The next day, Neil’s two runners at Chepstow were both unplaced (Princess T and Chinwag), whilst Michael’s Chromium was unplaced at Kempton.
On Thursday, Michael’s Sea Bright was well beaten at Chelmsford and we had no runners on Friday. At Ascot on Saturday, Neil’s Neachells Bridge ran a cracker to finish 3rd and whilst Hidden Depths was unplaced at Huntingdon, Queens Magic delivered a winner for Neil at the same course. At Lingfield, Michael saw Just That Lord finish 3rd which was a decent result, but Neil’s Last Enchantment did not make the frame.
There were no Sunday runners from our yards and a real mixed bag of results on Monday! At Kempton, Neil’s Dead Right was pulled up, as was Moonlight Camp at Ludlow, but Chirico Vallis won the Ludlow 2.45 race for Neil’s yard! Johnny’s Love The Leader was unplaced at the same track.
If you are interested in finding out more about what is involved, then please do get in touch as I would be delighted to discuss things with you.
I also have an e-book entitled “Racehorse Ownership – Everything You Might Have Wanted To Know But Would Not Have Known Who To Ask“. This is free and the download page can be accessed here.
Have a great week.
