Shares For Sale
We currently have shares available from 5% up to 100% in racehorses running on the flat and over jumps.
A 100% share of a racehorse trained at LRS would cost around £1,050 per month and £450 each time the horse runs to cover such as entry fees, jockeys’ riding fee, transport to the races, staff expenses.
Where a shareholding is less than 100% the costs would be pro rata, for example if you had a 25% share in a horse it would cost you a quarter of these figures. This pro rata applies to all shareholdings of 10% or greater.
For 5% and 10% shareholdings we have a special fixed price of £95 [5%] and £180 [10%] per month with nothing else to pay under any circumstances.
We also have the Matt Watkinson Racing Club which costs just £30 per month to join. Membership of the Racing Club gives you a real interest in a string of racehorses though you do not own the horses or receive any of the prize money they might win. Matt Watkinson Racing Club benefits include quarterly stable visits (the next one is in September) and you can enjoy going racing as an owner with an Owner’s Badge, a meal, entry into the Parade Ring and hopefully the Winner’s Enclosure (where were you when Deolali won at Newcastle on 15th February??) when the Racing Club has a runner.
LRS are also happy to discuss leasing a racehorse should this be of interest.
If you would like more information on racehorse ownership, please give Stella or Paul a call on 01995 605790 and we would be delighted to answer any questions you have. You are also welcome to come over to the yard, have a look at our excellent facilities and meet Stella Barclay & her team without any obligation whatsoever!
