Perusing pedigrees at the Yearling Parades
Highclere launch their new racehorse syndicates annually the week before Royal Ascot in June involving one or two yearlings (one-year-old horse) per syndicate.
Many people buy into these syndicates in June by selecting their favourite trainer combination. However, others prefer to wait until the Yearling Parades in October where they can see the horses in the flesh and therefore decide which syndicate to join.
Racehorse Syndicate Share Prices
The share price for two horses ranges from £6,950 to £47,500 + VAT (HTR claim the VAT back on your behalf within five months of payment). Prices vary due to the number of shares in each syndicate ranging from 20 shares in a cheaper syndicate to 12 in the most expensive syndicate.
Type of Racehorse Syndicates
Our racing syndicates differ in type. Our main syndicates are made up of horses purchased at the leading Bloodstock sales around the world from August to October by John Warren and Harry. The horses are bought as yearlings and go into training the same year with the aim of making a debut on a racecourse as a two-year-old the following year. HTR try to balance the syndicates by buying a sharper type that will be ready-to-race as a two-year-old with a slower maturing type that with luck, will be able to target the top middle distance races as a three-year-old.
In April, HTR also aim to purchase one or two horses at the Breeze-up sales. These are two-year-old horses that are ready-to-race and syndicated in one-horse syndicates.
National Hunt syndicates are formed throughout the year as and when a top National Hunt prospect becomes available. These are purchased through leading National Hunt bloodstock agents or the trainers themselves both at the sales and privately, and are formed as one-horse syndicates.
