Ownaracehorse acts as a bloodstock agent
on your behalf - finding horses and trainers who will deliver top
value for our shareholders. Unlike other syndicate managers or
racing clubs we actively choose different trainers and different
types of horses in order to deliver the value our customers demand.
Training racehorses is an art, as well as a science. The successful
trainer needs to understand breeding, horse physiology and
psychology as well as be aware of the races available to his horses
and what they will need to win. Often trainers will specialises in a
particular code (such as flat or jumps) or even certain types of
races within that code. Many trainers are known for doing well with
just sprinters on the flat, or for only producing top quality middle
We don't have only one trainer - we
ensure there are trainers up and down the country so that your
racehorse will run within easy distance of where you live. We are
also very choosy about the horses we send to each trainer -
because this choice will determine whether the horses, and therefore
our shareholders are successful or not. Whilst the choice of trainer
is important, matching the correct horse with the right trainer is
At Ownaracehorse we work with a wide range of shareholders, owners
and trainers and their horses. Generally we specialise in up and
coming trainers who are working hard to establish themselves. Often
these types of trainers will work harder to be successful with the
grades of horses we are buying, as they are attempting to rise
through the ranks.
Currently, we have five trainers:
Based in Norton, Malton, North Yorkshire. Trains flat
horses with a tremendous strike rate. An up-and-coming
trainer who we are sure will emerge to be a major
Northern based trainer in the coming seasons.
Ollie has excellent facilities, being in a major
training centre, and as he has a number of highly rated
horses in his yard he is used to travelling all over the
country to race them. He has runners as wide apart as
Goodwood, over to Newmarket and then up to Musselburgh
during a normal racing season.
Based in North Yorkshire, Philip trains
both flat and jumps horses, but has made his mark in the
jumping fraternity. He has only been training
since 2008 but has already proven himself to be a
very astute horseman and has an enviable strike record
with his older horses. He races his horses in the
North, but also sends them up to Scotland and down to the
Midlands tracks when the right opportunity presents
itself. He is a trainer to follow, as we are sure he
will be hitting the big time very soon.
Tommy is based
just outside Inkberrow in the Midlands, only a few miles
from both Worcester and Stratford racecourses. He
has both flat and jumps horses, but tends to have more
runners under National Hunt rules. Tommy has a
family business, based on his farm in the heart of the
countryside. He has had considerable success, especially
with our jumpers.
Seamus Durack has
been training since 2011, but before switching to
training, was a top National Hunt jockey. Now he
trains quality Flat and National Hunt racehorses from
his base in Lambourn. He runs his horses
throughout the South and Midlands and has an equal
amount of success with youngsters and olders horses
across both codes.
Michael trains in
the heart of Northumberland, just to the east of
Newcastle. He has a small, family yard where the
horses get personal attention. He has runners on
both codes, but does prefer the jumps, and we have had
considerable success with him with Chasers in
If you do become an owner with
Ownaracehorse you will have the opportunity to visit the yard where
your horse is trained. On these days it becomes apparent the level
of hard work which is required to run a successful racehorse
stables. If we can help trainers place shares in their horses we are
providing a valuable service to both them and our shareholders.
We also visit the trainers yard on a regular basis to add the
information content to the Ownaracehorse website and keep in touch
with other horses in the trainers yard.
In terms of choosing the horses we feature there are no set rules,
but most of the horses we feature will already have run. This way,
we can know you will get value for money from your purchase.
However, we are always looking for progressive sorts which will
perhaps be unexposed at the moment - but have a good possibility of
improving during the share period. On certain occasions we may also
claim a horse from races - an effective means of getting a horse
which is known to be fit, ready to run and has shown promise.
If you would like to learn more about our trainers and horses, don't
hesitate to call our helpdesk - we are happy to discuss exactly
which horses and trainers will be best for you.
