Saunton

Racehorse Syndicate

Buy a Share for £53 (inc. VAT)

Saunton is a good-looking two-year-old colt by Footstepsinthesand. Saunton is beautifully bred and he is from the same family as Red Bloom, who won the Group 1 Fillies’ Mile at Ascot and five other races. Footstepsinthesand is an excellent stallion and has produced countless winners over the years. He is the sire of Richard Hannon's Threat, who won two Group 2 races as a two-year-old in 2019.

Saunton is a good mover and has taken well to his early training; cantering away with no issues. He looks as though he could be a mid-season two-year-old, which means that he could be ready to run in July or August. He is likely to start off over six furlongs, but is likely to need a mile in time. Saunton has been given an early entry in the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes at Newmarket in October 2020, but he is by no means a guaranteed runner in this race.

Richard Hannon is one of the country's leading trainers and he has handled a number of top class horses since taking over the reins from his father in 2014. Richard's biggest wins to date include the Group 1 2,000 Guineas (Night Of Thunder), Group 1 1,000 Guineas (Billesden Brook), Group 1 Lockinge Stakes (Night Of Thunder and Olympic Glory) and the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes (Toronado). He has two yards near Marlborough in Wiltshire and both boast first-class, private facilities.

"I am a big fan of Footstepsinthesand and he sired a couple of my best horses of last year; Mums Tipple and Threat. Saunton moves well and he has been very straightforward. He has already been through the stalls and he enjoys his work. I can't wait to run him, but as with all my two-year-olds, we will take our time with him. I loved this horse at the sales and he is developing into a smart-looking colt. I have given him an entry in the valuable sales race at Newmarket in October and we will see how we go before making any firm running plans." Richard Hannon

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.
