Become an Owner

Thoroughbred ownership is your ticket to the inner-sanctum of the ‘Sport of Kings’.

Owning a share in a racehorse gives you the chance to get up-close and personal with the icons of the sports; to talk tactics, plan strategy and help define the career of your own champion racehorse.

"Besides my husband and children, Black Caviar is the best thing that has ever happened to me. It is a dream come true to have this beautiful horse." – Pam Hawkes, Part-owner of Black Caviar.

There are many ways to become involved in racehorse ownership. The purchase of a racehorse needn’t be an expensive thing, thanks to the variety of ownership opportunities available.

Below are just some of the ways one can become involved in racehorse ownership:

Sole Owner
Being the sole owner of a racehorse gives you the right to all prize money accrued, as well as the chance to name and race a potential star in your own set of silks. As a sole owner you will be involved with all decision making in the career of your racehorse, but are also solely responsible for all expenses your horse accrues.
Part-Owner
Many people prefer part-ownership of a racehorse, as you get to share all the thrills of race day glory, as well as the bills. Part-owners are afforded all of the same privileges of sole owners, for a fraction of the cost.
Syndicate Owner
Buying a share in a racehorse syndicate provides a cost-effective option for those wanting a taste of ownership at a fraction of the price. Syndication offers a great number of people the chance to own a share of a horse at a much lower cost than afforded through part-ownership.

Lessee
Leasing a horse is another pathway into racehorse ownership. One can lease a horse with family and friends without having the ongoing responsibility of owning a horse. The lessee still pays for all training fees and associated costs, and keeps a percentage of prize money won. The leasing owner commonly retains a cut of prize money won.
