Owning a Race Horse

With Anthony Honeyball, owning a racehorse is straightforward, great fun and very exciting. There are lots of different options available, depending on the depth of your pockets, and how involved you want to be with making decisions. We believe that our strength lies in being able to source young unproven horses that go on to have good potential.

 Syndicates and Partnerships  Costs and ownership are shared between a group, and this is a popular way of getting involved. Typically between 2 and 12 people share costs and winnings, and this can be a very sociable and enjoyable experience. We set up and run the Partnership. This means all the admin of running the co-ownership is carried out by us so you get ‘hassle free’ racehorse ownership. The different interested parties come to us, interested in buying a share in a racehorse, but not wanting to buy a whole racehorse.

Company Ownership  The horse is owned by the company’s shareholders, and is an ideal way to promote your company, and to build your brand. Your horse can carry your company name – a great way to promote a business.

Sole Ownership You are the single owner of the horse. As such, any costs and profits will be yours alone. You will also have a close involvement with any of the decisions regarding the horse. You will be able to choose the name of your horse and which colours will be worn in your name, and you get to keep all the prize money!


Decimus Racing.

Decimus Racing is a syndicate formed and run by 2 of our existing owners - Gill Langford and Martyn Chapman. Here is how they'd like you to get involved : 

Experience the opportunity of sharing in three prospective NH hurdlers/chasers with full ownership for a relatively modest entry amount.

 Buying a store, regardless of breeding, is a considerable gamble. So we've decided to put forward a package to increase the chances of success by grouping three horses together under a full ownership scheme.

 We propose buying three horses in Spring 2019 for a total cost (including transport, expenses and the first year's insurance) for no more than £150,000 including VAT. We shall source the horses from Ireland, the UK or public auction.  All the horses will be trained by Anthony Honeyball. However, if Anthony were able to source an older horse as a substitute for one of the stores, we reserve the right to go with his opinion.

 30 shares will be available (equating to a one-tenth share) but all owners will share all three horses. Each owner will pay approximately £5000 for a share (or £10000 for two shares etc). Training fees will commence from 1 July 2019 at £190 per month per share inclusive.

 The first 30 people to make a deposit of £500 will secure a share now (balance payable by 31 May 2019).

 We obviously cannot guarantee owners’ badges for all 30 owners should they wish to attend any given race. We shall have a stated fair and transparent rota system for the allocation of owners’ badges. All owners will get free admission to any race meeting when one of the horses is running.

 All other standard Decimus Racing terms apply.
