Question?

What is not covered in the monthly fee.

Answer

Any entry or supplementary fee for a big race or any costs relating to entering or running in any race outside of Great Britain. If these costs becomes relevant, this means we have a very talented horse earning significant prize money and increasing its value.

Any vet’s surgery other than routine veterinary work.

Question?

Is there any deductions from prize money.

Answer.

Unlike many other syndicates, we never levy a prize-money tax on owners. 100% of every pound your horse earns goes into the syndicate balance.

The prize money displayed on the Racing Post website is the gross prize money, including all the prize money distributed between owners, trainers, jockeys and the stable. The owners’ percentage of prize money is roughly 78% for win prize money, and 83-87% for place prize money. We distribute the syndicate balance annually towards the end of the year, without deduction.

Question?

What happens when the horse is sold

Answer

We’ll tell you if an offer is made during the season. Decisions to sell are made by a vote between shareholders. If your horse is sold rather than retired, the sales figure will be added to the syndicate balance, less any applicable expenses. Usually these include sales house commission, transport and vetting costs. Unlike some other syndicates, we do not charge a commission.
