Horse racing is a sport enjoyed by many in the UK, whether that is by avid spectators who regularly attend meetings or by those who love a day at the races in the summer.
If you have ever fancied becoming closer to the action in the sport, racehorse ownership may be for you. Here is a look at some of the advantages that it will give you and why it is worth considering if you are seeking a new thrill in your life.
Unique Experience That Gets You Even Close to The Sport
Owning a racehorse is a unique experience that will ensure you are an integral part of the sport of horse racing. When your horse runs at the track the rider will wear your silks, your name will be written as the owner in the racecard and you will pick up any prize money the horse earns.
Although it will be the horse’s trainer who cares for your horse and prepares it for the races, you are the decision maker. You can choose the trainer you would like your horse to go to, based on their location and experience.
If you are fortunate to see your horse prevail on the track, it is a proud moment and one you will want to share with family and friends.
Affordable With Racehorse Shares
The common myth about horse racing ownership is that it is too expensive. This is not the case when you buy shares in a horse. RaceShare offer shares in their horses from as little as £18, which makes racehorse ownership affordable for many people.
Another big advantage of buying shares with RaceShare is that all your costs for year one, including training fees, are covered. You don’t have an obligation to continue into year two, but if you enjoy the experience, you can continue.
Purchasing shares means you can become involved in more than one horse at the same time. You can choose to buy shares in both Flat and National Hunt horses, so you will have interest across the 12 months of the year.
Part Of a Community
Racehorse ownership is a fantastic way to meet new people who will share your passion for horse racing. On the day of your race, you will come across the other owners of the horses in your race. At some courses, you will share a meal before you race and get the opportunity to discuss your experiences so far.
If you are part of a syndicate, you will also get the chance to meet other owners at events like those on National Racehorse Week. You may then stay in touch with these people and arrange to meet up at future horse racing meetings.
When you purchase a racehorse, not only are you making an investment for yourself, but you are also investing in the sport, and helping it to thrive under regulations where the welfare of the horses is put first.
Good luck if you do become a racehorse owner in the future. Hopefully, it will provide you with drama, passion, fun and excitement, and you will want to encourage others to join you on the journey in the future.
