Racehorse Syndicate

Buy a Share for £58 (inc. VAT)

Barrichello is a good looking four-year-old gelding by Gentlewave, who finished third on his only point-to-point start in Ireland in February 2020. He has plenty of size and scope, and although his long-term future looks likely to be over fences, the plan is for him to contest bumpers (National Hunt Flat races) initially, before switching to hurdles. Barrichello's sire, Gentlewave, is an excellent producer of Jumps winners and his progeny include the cross-country specialist, Easysland, who was one of the most impressive winners at this year's Cheltenham Festival.

Barrichello is to be trained by Donald McCain from his base in Cheshire. Donald has enjoyed a magnificent career so far, and his impressive horde of more than 1,000 wins include a Grand National success with Ballabriggs in 2011. Donald's horses are generally campaigned in the north of the country, but he is not afraid of sending his horses to the southern racecourses for the right race.

"Barrichello was unlucky not to finish second in his point-to-point and there should be plenty of improvement to come from him. He's a good size and I am looking forward to seeing how he progresses this coming season. I may give him a bumper run for experience before going novice hurdling, but I expect him to make a chaser in time." Donald McCain

What happens at the end of a syndicate term?

There really is no obligation at all after the initial one-off purchase!

All Owners Group horses have a set syndicate term, which usually lasts for approximately 12 months, although this can vary.

Towards the end of the term, owners will receive a report from the trainer and the Owners Group team, specifying the horse's prospects going forward and a recommendation on whether we believe the horse should continue into a further term, giving everyone the chance to renew for a further term.

The renewal price is very likely to be cheaper than the price paid to purchase the share(s) in the first instance, as owners will have already paid for their share of the capital of the horse. Therefore, the renewal price just includes the ongoing racing/training fees, management fees, insurance, VAT and the contribution towards the Owners Group Horse Retirement Fund.

Owners are not obliged to renew their share(s) if they don't wish to, it's completely their choice. Once the syndicate term ends, any relinquished share(s) will automatically be released for sale and if those share(s) sell elsewhere, owners will receive the relevant share capital value of the horse, credited to their Owners Group account.

If a low number of owners decide to renew their shares, the syndicate may be re-structured (see Terms and Conditions), or the horse may potentially be sold. If a horse is sold, the net sale price will be divided by the number of shares in the syndicate and all owners will receive their share of the net sale price to their Owners Group account. If the syndicate does not continue into an extended period, any renewal payment for that new period, will be refunded.

Racehorse welfare is our top priority. If a horse has a setback in training or is deemed not to be fit enough to race for any reason, then the horse will rest until fit and ready. Our business also runs a not-for-profit organisation called Xracehorse Club, dedicated to the re-homing of retired racehorses. We are extremely passionate about the welfare of all of our horses, and will always endeavour to ensure that any horse retired from Owners Group is given a loving home, when they retire from racing.
