Rio de Janeiro's Christ the Redeemer statue towers above the Maracana stadium
I am delighted to present our new syndicates to race in 2017 which, in this Olympic year, are named after some of the greatest Olympians past and present. Sir Steve Redgrave, Edwin Moses, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Denise Lewis, Sir Mark Todd, Dame Kelly Holmes, Victoria Pendleton and David Weir are etched in Olympic history and all of us at Highclere are hugely honoured that these supreme athletes have allowed us to use their names. We are also immensely excited that all have expressed their keen interest in following the horses in their respective syndicates which I am sure will lead to a healthy competitive atmosphere between them!
I believe that this year we have put together a really mouth-watering group of trainer combinations as well as a mix of share prices that hopefully suit all budgets. Of course the ultimate test for me is trying to decide which one I would want to join and realising that it is impossible to choose between them!
At Highclere we pride ourselves on giving our owners the best possible chance of competing at the highest level and I am sure that these new syndicates will continue the success that we have enjoyed over the past twenty four years.
As always, please don’t hesitate to ask me or my team should you have any questions on how it all works.
