The Experience

As an owner with Highclere you can expect a very high level of personal service. Each owner is treated as if he or she owned their horses outright. HTR will act as your personal racing manager, keeping you regularly informed as to the progress of your bloodstock and running plans.


Members of The Admiral Rous Syndicate at Royal Ascot

Whether you are based in the UK or abroad, we will keep in touch via email and on the telephone, sending you filmed updates of your horses being put through their paces featuring interviews with your trainers. You will receive a full report on your horse's performance after a race and a DVD and photograph will be sent to your home when you have a winner. 

We arrange regular visits to see horses in training, giving owners the opportunity to talk to the trainers direct. This is a chance to get behind the scenes at the top training yards in the UK and hear the insights from the most successful trainers such as Sir Michael Stoute, John Gosden, Nicky Henderson and Paul Nicholls.

Owners have the opportunity to see their bloodstock at the Yearling Parades (Flat Racing), held annually at Highclere Stud in the grounds of Highclere Castle and at the National Hunt Parades at the offices of HTR.  You will be able to see your bloodstock throughout the year on regular organised visits.


The Jockey Club Rooms

In Newmarket, owners are able to stay overnight at the prestigious Jockey Club Rooms, home of one of the finest art collections in the UK, where they are joined by their trainers at dinner. The following morning owners will see their horses on Newmarket’s historic Heath, before returning to the Rooms for breakfast.

On race days, arrangements are made for owners to pick up their owners’ badges at the Owners & Trainers desk. A member of the HTR team will be on hand at the racecourse and will escort owners into the parade ring before the race to meet the trainer and jockey.

HTR has a private box at Newbury to which owners have exclusive access throughout the year. When HTR horses are running at major festival meetings, HTR will make arrangements for hospitality on the day.

While our aim is to manage your bloodstock as professionally as possible in order to maximise the horses’ potential, we also want to ensure that every owner enjoys the involvement in racehorse ownership to the full.

The duration of each syndicate is clearly stated in the agreement but generally lasts for a minimum of two seasons. The horses may be sold at any time throughout the duration of the syndicate and any attractive offer is always carefully considered.

Once all the horses in any syndicate are sold, it is wound up and the accounts are reviewed by the auditors. Any surplus of income over expenditure is distributed to the shareowners. In the unlikely event of a deficit, the cost will be borne by HTR thereby ensuring that no further calls for funds are ever made.
