Sole Ownership

Sole Ownership

Have you always dreamed about owning your own racehorse? Sole Ownership is a very popular and straightforward way of enjoying the thrills of racing. The excitement of cheering your horse to the line is like nothing else and few things give us a bigger sense of satisfaction than helping a new owner realise the ambition of having a winner.

Our team will guide you through registering with the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) and will assist you in choosing your very own silk colours over a glass of champagne here at Jackdaws Castle. 


Costs of Ownership

We are frequently asked as to the costs of becoming an owner. It’s not possible to be specific about all charges, as different horses have different requirements at various times. However, some that you should be prepared for include: the purchase of your horse, training fees (which include stabling, exercise and feed), farrier fees and veterinary costs. Additionally, every registered owner has to set up an account at Weatherbys, a company based in Northamptonshire, who act as Racing’s Secretarys. Weatherbys deal with jockeys’ and entry fees and also distribute prize money.

All VAT is recoverable on the above. Our team will advise you how to do this.

Obviously, the aim is to offset some of the costs by winning prize money! Ultimately, though, having a runner is the major thrill of racehorse ownership; a feeling of being in the thick of the action, together with a sense of anticipation and an involvement that you can never experience as a spectator.
