9 Reasons To Own a Racehorse


We have taken the top 9 reasons to Own a Racehorse and will dig into them a little here.


  • Share of Prize Money
    • It is never recommended that anyone gets involved in racehorse ownership just for the benefit of winning prize-money. Not many horses pay their way with earnings from winning races, but for our owners, it is valuable to them that they do get a share of anything their horse does earn. All levels of ownership with Crowd Racing, are entitled to their pro-rata share of prize-money.
  • Regular Stable Visits and Open Mornings
    • Being able to visit the stable where the horses are trained is an important part of owning a racehorse, as well as being a fantastic experience. When you own shares in a racehorse with Crowd Racing, you will be able to visit the stable whenever you wish to see your horse. You will also get invites to regular Open Mornings, with the opportunity to meet the team behind the stable, the Crowd Racing team and also your fellow owners. These are very sociable, fun and popular events.
  • Own a Racehorse with some of the best trainers in the UK
    • Crowd Racing works with two of the best young trainers in the UK, Neil Mulholland and Jamie Osborne. Neil is based just outside Bath and trains The Detainee for us, while Jamie trains both Born To Finish and Genuinely Crowded and is based in Lambourn, Berkshire.

  • One Fixed Cost- No hidden extras
    • A lot of our owners were nervous entering racehorse ownership for the first time, we are asked “what additional costs do I have to cover” a lot. We have structured our model so that owners pay a one-off fee to suit their budget up-front, we guarantee that there will be no further costs.
  • Invites to regular Crowd Racing events
    • Horse racing is a very social sport, we have many couples with joint ownership and a lot of people who are the only ones in their circle who enjoy racing. They revel in the events and thrive on meeting the other owners and going racing as part of a group.
  • Owners and Trainers Badges
    • Going to the races is a great day out, but going as an Owner is a brilliant experience. Owners have exclusive facilities at all racecourses, and many courses also provide a free meal. You get access to the paddock areas to speak with your trainer and jockey pre-race and hopefully return to the Winners enclosure after the race. For a lot of our owners, this is the best part of being involved.

  • Access to a designated contact
    • Being able to ask any questions you wish to do is very important when new to racehorse ownership. No question is the wrong question and there will be many, racing has a lot of terminology and owners should feel free to ask as many questions as required. As an owner with Crowd Racing, our owners have direct access to a contact via email and phone 24/7.
  • Share of the proceeds of any sale of your racehorse
    • Owning a racehorse in absolutely for the enjoyment of being involved so the plan to see the horse is never at the front of our thinking, but there is always a chance that circumstances may dictate that the horse will be sold. If this is the case, the owners will receive their pro-rata share of the proceeds.
  • Regular information on your racehorse direct from the trainer
    • Anyone involved in racehorse ownership will want the latest and most detailed of information, direct from their trainer. Owners with Crowd Racing will receive very regular information in video, audio and newsletter form, they can also follow progress on social media and tune into live broadcasts from the yard on Periscope.

While we will always strive to buy racehorses for our owners which will win races and increase in value, the costs involved in training and running a racehorse plus the relatively low levels of prize money in the UK, make showing an upside on the initial investment made by owners very difficult and somewhat rare.

Shares bought in horses via Crowd Racing, should always be viewed as a social investment with no expectation of any financial upside. We can guarantee you will love being involved and have some wonderful experiences but we cannot guarantee you will make money.
