Racehorse ownership can be a very exciting and enjoyable experience.
Ask any racehorse owner and they will tell you that owning - in
part or whole - a winning racehorse is one of life's greatest joys.
But racehorse ownership can also require tremendous patience and
can involve frustration and disappointment. There is never any guarantee
that even the most expensive horse will succeed. After all, racehorses,
like professional footballers and athletes, can suffer from injuries
and set backs.
For most owners, however, the expense and potential
disappointment are not enough to diminish their enthusiasm for the
sport and their desire for a glorious winner. For further information
on racehorse ownership you might like to contact the Racehorse Owners
Association who can provide you with general advice.
There is nothing quite like planning your horse's campaign or watching
your horse training on the gallops and racing on the track. Here at
Mick Easterby Racing we can provide help and advice for everyone from
the experienced to the first time owner. Mick Easterby has bought and bred winning racehorses for over half a century and offers you the opportunity to draw upon the experience of one of the shrewdest racehorse trainers.
There are several different ways in which you can own a racehorse.
You can have full ownership or part ownership. Two or more prospective
owners can determine their share of ownership. Syndicates have been
popular in recent years, whereby several enthusiasts club together,
put money in the kitty and share the rollercoaster ride of racehorse
ownership. If you would like to discuss organising a racing syndicate
through Mick Easterby, telephone Mick on 01347 878 368.
We are always keen to help anyone wanting to set up a new syndicate
in the yard.
Once an owner has purchased a racehorse the jockey riding the horse will wear the colours of the owner when he or she races. Owners who have not yet registered colours can design their own silks. There are various online tools where silks can be designed, for example on the BHA's site here.
You can read an interview with one of our longstanding owners here.
Naming Your Horse
If you have purchased an unnamed horse then you will have the thrill of choosing a name for the horse. There are certain rules that must be followed and some names that cannot be used, including names already registered, protected names of famous horses from the past, and of course, rude words! You can check the availability of names on the BHA's website here.
