Social Events

Results are important but so is having a good time. We’ll never lose sight of how vital it is for the horses to produce the right results but equally, we never forget why most people get into the great sport of horse racing – for enjoyment.

That’s why we set out from day one to help you get the most out of your ownership. Often, that means a great day out among like-minded friends.

Your horse’s naming day is a great occasion where owners get the chance to meet collectively for the first time. You’ll receive a complimentary mounted photo of your horse, taken by Hambleton Racing’s official professional photographer, as part of the all-complimentary naming day.

Also included is a private coffee reception, trip to the gallops and pictures in the yard, before returning to the Hambleton Inn to hear the result of the naming vote announced by pub landlord Paul Cooper to a champagne toast.

Apart from the thrill of seeing your finely tuned thoroughbred on the gallops and up close and personal for a photo shoot, you’ll also enjoy swapping thoughts with new and established owners alike.

Often the pinnacle of the HR social diary is our Owners Day at Doncaster, at which owners enjoy an outstanding private box and great hospitality.

Other memory-making days owners have enjoyed include a private box at Ascot, a visit to the National Stud and of course our regular stable-based events, such as our famous summer barbeques. These days mix seeing the horses at the yard with a good social occasion with members of other syndicates. These occasions come packed with events and competitions that ensure an enjoyable day, with the focus on laughter, camaraderie and lasting friendship.
