FOR THE LOVE OF THE RACEHORSE…AND WINNING

“It was great to land a treble with Dreamsundermyfeet. He is a super young horse with lots more to come. His owners’ patience has been rewarded.”

Martin Keighley, Trainer.

JOINING FORCES TO BUY AND TRAIN BETTER HORSES

Most years, we invest in a number of high quality, well conformed foals or yearlings at the leading bloodstock sales in England, Ireland or France.  Decisions are made against a well-defined specification in close consultation with our trainers and network of highly regarded agents.  We put up the capital and take the financial risk before partnering out the horses with friends and co-owners.  Do consider joining forces with us.

COME AND JOIN US: SHARES FOR SALE

We do not run large syndicates.  Some of our horses are in sole, joint or quarter-share ownerships, while others have between five and ten owners.  Feel free to discuss your requirements with Jon Hughes, who will willingly provide more detailed information on the shares that are currently available.

Fortuna Ligna was bought at the Goffs Land Rover Sale and was the stand-out filly. She is athletic, beautifully balanced with a long stride. A most classy type with a pedigree to match her looks. Soldier Of Fortune is from the Galileo / Sadler’s Wells line, while the dam, Quiet Thought, is from the famous Bob Back line, one of the strongest in National Hunt. She won 3x over hurdles and fences, and placed 5x. There is black type across the whole dam line back to dual Cheltenham Festival winner, Stormyfairweather. Her trainer excels with young fillies such as this.

HORSES IN TRAINING

At any one time we usually have around ten horses in training and a similar number of young stock coming through.  Many of our owners like to be with a range of trainers in a variety of locations, and ours are in the West Country, the Cotswolds and the Yorkshire Dales.

Very well bred, from an Aga Khan family, and we expected him to be a junior bumper. All he has done since is grow and he is now a big chasing type. Need to be patient.

MARES, FOALS & YOUNGSTERS

Our greatest successes have come from buying unraced foals and yearlings and then bringing them along properly and patiently.  Giving them time to develop at their own pace.  It was inevitable that co-owning mares and breeding from them would become part of the dream.  And what a huge pleasure it is.

OUR TRAINERS

We are huge believers in developing long-term relationships with trainers that we admire for their commitment and dedication.  Karl Burke, Philip Hobbs, Anthony Honeyball, Martin Keighley and Charlie Longsdon all fit the bill, as do our pre-trainers PJ Colville, Claire Hart and John and Kirsty Weymes.
