Horses for Sale

New Syndicate Opportunity

Rae will be at Tattersalls Yearling Sales this month to look for some new prospects for existing and new owners. In the past, we have successfully put together either 3-horse or single horse syndicates. However, we have found the 3-horse syndicates are particularly appealing to owners as they provide more interest and increase the odds of success.

Ideally, Rae would like to purchase two or three horses at around 20,000gns each and put them into one syndicate. This sort of budget gives him excellent scope to find a couple of good Listed prospects; although that doesn’t mean to say you can’t find a top horse for less. Rae found Group 1 winner Serious Attitude. He bought her for just 7,500 guineas and sold for $1.85 million!

The initial investment would be for the purchase of the 3 yearlings. A 60,000gns budget would be split amongst a group of 4, 6 or 8 shares. This upfront investment would include:

      • Purchase price of the yearlings + 5% commission
      • Insurance for the first year with Weatherbys Hamilton
      • New Syndicate registration, administration fees
      • Registration with Weatherbys VAT reclaim services


There would then be a monthly payment into the Syndicate account of £7,200 (again split between 4, 6 or 8 shares). This is inclusive of:

    • All training fees
    • Entry in the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes if eligible
    • Maintenance of the PLUS10 Bonus Scheme registration if eligible
    • Naming and registration fees for the horses
    • Registration of colours
    • Entry fees, jockey fees etc
    • Racing expenses and transport costs within the UK
    • Farrier fees and minor veterinary charges. 
    • Ongoing insurance for the horses


Each shareholder will pay their share direct to the Syndicate’s Weatherbys account on 1st of each month.  Through the Weatherbys VAT reclaim service, the account will recoup all VAT on training fee invoices and the original purchase price. This money goes back into the account and accumulates along with any prize money and sale of horses at a later date. Below is a breakdown of the investment depending on the number of shareholders:
