Syndicates

Highclere launch their new Flat 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.

New National Hunt racehorse syndicates can be launched at any time but most often in the spring or summer.  These syndicates tend to sell our quickly and the horses can be seen at the National Hunt Parades held in the summer at the HTR offices.

Racehorse Syndicate Share Prices

The share price ranges from £4,500 to £16,800 + 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 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 and Jake Warren and Harry Herbert. 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.
