Owning a racehorse is a pleasure that has been enjoyed for hundreds of years. In the 21st century there are many different forms of ownership which mean that it is no longer exclusively the preserve of the super-rich. With access to state of the art veterinary facilities and impeccably maintained Gallops, Newmarket really is the perfect place to have a horse in training.
Here at Hugo Palmer Racing we have a dedicated Communications Assistant whose role is to provide our owners with regular updates, photographs and videos of their horses working. Owners are always welcome at the yard. Watching them on the Gallops is a big part of the pleasure of owning horses. We encourage our owners to come and see their horses and enjoy a delicious breakfast in our owners’ room afterwards.
We host exclusive owners’ events during the season and are keen to promote the sociable side of racehorse ownership alongside the absolute dedication we have to maximising the potential of every horse in the yard on the racecourse.
The different ways to become an owner are shown below:
This is where one person owns the whole horse. All the decisions will be taken between them and the trainer and all the owner’s prize money will go to the Sole Owner. The Sole Owner is exclusively responsible for all the costs of the horse’s keep. The Sole Owner needs to be a registered with Weatherbys as a registered owner.
Hugo and his team attend all major European Horse Sales and will be very happy to find the right horse for you.
This involves a group of up to 20 people owning the horse together. It is a fantastic way to own horses and split the expense between friends and also to meet new people. Many lifelong friendships have been made through owning horses in Racing Partnerships.
We put together partnerships every year and have shares to fit all pockets.
