Thread: Owners Group

  1. #1

    Owners Group

    Not sure if any/many would have heard of this but it's a (huge) syndicate aimed at small investors, shares around 55 each covering one year.

    I haven't played but a mate did and he needed a driver to get to the Alan King open day/stable tour today at Barbury Castle.
    His horse is a French bred 4yo, Jaboticaba who ran 2/3 times last season but still a maiden.

    The reason I post this is that I had extremely low expectations of the day; 200 punters descending on Kings yard would be a massive inconvenience to the operation so I assumed access would be restricted and that he would have gophers providing info, it couldn't have been further from the truth.

    King was helpful, informative, and allowed unrestricted access throughout the yard, gallops and equine/rehab centre, he provided updates on several of his horses and couldn't have been a better host.

    So if anyone sees an advert for this syndicate and has an interest in joining, I wouldn't run away with the idea that you will get be owning a Champion Hurdle winner but if it's something you would like to do you will get the opportunity be enjoy a fantastic look behind the scenes at one of the country's biggest yards.

    People we met also had shares in horses with Paul Nicholls and said he was just as accommodating....

    About a month ago, I bought one share (!) in Parody (Paul Nicholls) for just over 50 - just to see what the experience is like.

    That buys you one years worth of ownership (until August '19) and it seems that the renewal price for the following year is lower (circa 60%).
    Not expecting to have a big winner, but it is something that I would consider doing more of.

    Early days, so can't really feedback any more than that at the moment.

    It will be interesting to hear how you get on, Leman. Best of luck with it.

    A good way of getting into it at a throwaway price. A share is only 0.0333% but the size of the share has, in my experience, very little connection to the pride and enjoyment of seeing 'your' horse on the track.
    Of course, Paul N takes a financial hit with the upfront purchase but it's a handsome return if he can sell enough shares. I had a look at one that's up at the moment, a Yeats 3yo filly called Sabrina. Bought in June for 52k euro. A share in her is only 55 and covers all costs until the agreement termination in October 2019. What it means is that Paul may get as much as 100k for training her when his normal training fee would probably have made him around 40k. Good luck to him because he'll be bringing new people in to the game.

    If anyone asks my advice about Supreme, I guide them towards leasing rather than buying in the first instance. They regularly have fillies from good breeders who take them back at the end of their racing career in the hope that they have acquired value as a broodmare. No upfront purchase but no sale value at the end. Essentially, you only pay for racing costs and receive racing returns so there is less risk and you know absolutely your maximum exposure.
    The lowest they go down to is usually 1% which will set you back 26 per month.

    The same friend who bought shares in Jaboticaba has invested in this one as well, as you say 55 is hardly a sum to break you and I know he wants to visit PNs yard so sees the small outlaw as value....
