Owning a race horse is a truly special experience for anyone who shares our passion for the sport. However we realised that this experience was denied to the great majority of racing fans due to the sheer expense of horse ownership. Thousands of mad keen racegoers were missing out on all the excitement, gossip, team tactics and all sorts of insider chatter shared between trainer and owner. All the stuff that makes racing so magical.
So, we decided to create the British Racing Club to make that magical experience available to passionate racing fans everywhere, for just a £300 a year which is payable monthly. Members will not be liable for any additional requests for payment in relation to the keeping and training of the racehorses, regardless what costs the Club may incur.
Horse racing can be tough game for an owner and an expensive one, a lot of patience is required. However with the British Racing Club we take away that risk as our members enjoy the Ownership experience of all the different Club horses. Every Club horse is generally with a different trainer around the country which provides endless racing opportunities around Britain. Some yards may be flying while others having a tough time, by having our horses with different trainers it means we will always have a horse ready to race. In racing you generally don’t want to put ‘all your eggs in one basket’.
Club Stable tours
One of the exciting sides to ownership are the opportunities to visit your horses at their stables. Visiting a racing yard is a truly special experience which really gives you an insight behind the scenes of the racing world. At the British Racing Club we organise regular visits to our trainers and horses where all members are welcome.
Our latest upcoming stable visits we are planning are with Philip Hobbs and Harry Whittington. We have sent our latest recruit Festival Dawn to Philip Hobbs, she arrived a couple of weeks ago at his Sandhill’s stables. Festival Dawn is by Kayf Tara and the only foal from Keel Road whom her breeder Nick Sutton bought from the late Ginger McCain. The dam won 4 p2p's (once with Nick on her!) and a good Novice chase at Chepstow. She was born at 5.00am on the Tuesday of the Cheltenham Festival hence her name. She has been very patiently brought along having a few educational runs last season in point to points and there is no doubt she is a chaser in the making.
With Harry Whittington we have Salto Chisco, he has already won 3 times this season and is now back from his winter’s break and will be returning to the racecourse in March for his spring and summer campaign.
