Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Launch New Syndicates Named After Great Adventurers And Explorers

27th June, 2018

Highclere Thoroughbred Racing is delighted to launch their new syndicates named after some of Britain’s most courageous adventures and explorers.  A total of ten adventurers form the new Highclere syndicates set to race in 2019, and between them they have ventured to some of the most exotic and remote corners of the earth.

The line-up of extraordinary adventurers who have a syndicate in their name, include; Benedict Allen, blind adventurer Miles Hilton-Barber, Claire Lomas, Karen Darke, Polar explorers Lt. Scott Sears and Ben Saunders, the 5th Earl of Carnarvon, Rosie Swale Pope, Levison Wood, plus BBC presenter and Sport Relief adventurer Helen Skelton.

Like the adventurers and explorers Highclere has continued to break boundaries in racing as one of the most successful racing syndicates in Europe.  To complement these daring names Highclere has enlisted the care of some of racing’s most prominent trainers, such as the long-time associated Highclere trainers William Haggas and Roger Charlton, multiple Classic winning trainer Sir Michael Stoute, John Gosden, and more.  

Highclere pride themselves on giving their owners the best possible opportunity to race at the highest level at a more affordable price.  Each of the new syndicates is structured with a different pricing band and will once again give owners the opportunity to create a two horse syndicate from single horse options.

The Hon. Harry Herbert, Chairman of HTR, commented: “I am very excited to present our new syndicates named after brilliant adventurers and explorers, and would like to thank all of these remarkable men and women who have so kindly allowed us use their names.  Their achievements are truly amazing.  It is an honour to have them associated with Highclere.

“Whilst the trainers selected for these syndicates ready to race in 2019 are not only brilliant in what they do but have also been with us now for many years and know exactly how we like to operate.”

Helen Skelton commented: “I have always enjoyed horse riding and love going to the races when I get the chance, so I am thrilled to have a syndicate in my name. I can’t wait to see my horse out on the racecourse next year and be a part of the action with Highclere and trainer Richard Hannon.”

Levison Wood commented: "I’m thrilled to have had a syndicate named after me. I’ve always had a passion for horse-riding, particularly whilst on my travels, and I wish everyone involved the very best.”
