Ownership

Becoming An Owner

 Jason will be delighted to welcome your horses for training at Tall Trees Stables. Jason is happy to train for individual owners, racing partnerships, clubs and syndicate owners; at Tall Trees all owners are assured of a warm welcome and a high level of service, we have an open door policy and are open for visits 7 days a week.

If you haven’t been involved in racehorse ownership before, you may like to navigate through the paragraphs below, which detail the different entries into ownership and the typical costs involved. At Tall Trees Stables we can provide affordable involvement in horse racing, whatever your budget. We offer some of the most competitive rates in the North and concessions are available through separate negotiation.

If you are an existing racehorse owner and already know your requirements, or are new to racing and would like to discuss your options why not contact Jason direct, either by phone or email.

Buying a Racehorse

Getting involved in racehorse ownership can feel like a complicated business. Below we have outlined the three main forms of ownership entry, all of which are available at Tall Trees Stables. We hope you find something that suits your needs.

Sole Ownership

The horse is yours and only yours but that means any costs will be incurred by you alone. All prize money comes to you and all profits arising from a sale of the horse would be yours. Jason has trained and sold on numerous horses for a sizeable profit, including; Wee Jim – sold to Ireland for 105,000gns and Shakour – sold to Qatar for 40,000gns.

With Jason you will also have close involvement with decisions affecting the horse. As a sole owner you will of course be able to choose the name of your horse (if it isn’t already named) and which colours will be worn in your name.

Co-ownership

Of course if you don’t want to incur all the costs you can share a horse with other people. We can either introduce you to other owners or perhaps you will want to get some friends involved as well.

Co-ownership is effectively any type of racehorse ownership other than sole ownership, but in racing there are a number of different terms for this depending how many people are included in the ownership of the horse. There are 4 types of co-ownership;

Company Ownership

  • The horse is owned by the company’s shareholders
  • The company must appoint a Registered Agent to act on its behalf – this can be one of the owners or the trainer

Joint ownership

  • Can consist of between 2 and 12 individuals
  • The horse(s) can run in either a joint ownership’s name or the name of a joint owner

Racing Partnership

  • Can consist of between 2 and 20 individuals of which at least 2 must become, or already be, registered owners

Leasing

  • If you’re interested in leasing a horse or a share in a horse it’s best to give us a call to discuss your requirements, as we always have options available

Racing Clubs

Racing Clubs are not an independent form of co-ownership. Therefore by joining or becoming a member of a Racing Club you receive the benefits of that Club but are not entering into racehorse ownership yourself. We have a number of clubs you can join including the Tall Trees Racing club.

  • Being a member of a racing club will involve the ‘leasing of an ownership interest’, but does not involve ownership of any racehorses.
  • The Club itself may own any number of horses which will run under the colours of the Racing Club.
  • Involves registering as a member of a club
  • There may be some ownership benefits including a share of prize money.
