Small and friendly
Over the past decade Hambleton Racing has become well known for running small, friendly syndicates that compete with distinction on the racecourse. If past experience is anything to go by, you’ll soon regard our small, efficient, family-orientated team as friends – no owners are ‘numbers’ at Hambleton.
Whether on a race day at York, or visiting the stables to see your horse on the gallops, you’ll always be accompanied by a member of the Hambleton team.
Responsible and trustworthy
Hambleton Racing were founder members of the Racing Syndicates And Clubs Association. Set up by the leading syndicates and clubs in Britain, the organisation ensures that all its members adhere to a strict code of conduct, thus safeguarding the interests of owners.
Not all syndicates agree to act with this level of openness and honesty. Over the years we’ve unfortunately often heard stories of poor service and questionable integrity from disgruntled owners who had initially owned with other seemingly reputable and successful syndicates.
Our open and honest approach helps us maintain excellent relationships with our outstanding trainers, and often sees us in the right place to take advantage of good opportunities.
Through Kevin Ryan, we were able to acquire Royal Ascot winner Lightning Cloud and the classy Fast Act, while David O’Meara was instrumental in gaining Hambleton’s owners the chance to own Supreme Occasion, another horse that won the Racing Post Yearling £10,000 Bonus for Hambleton‘s owners.
Hambleton Racing are socially responsible. Over the past decade we’ve raised tens of thousands for racing charities.
The Injured Jockeys Fund, Racing Welfare and New Beginnings are three charities we’ve consistently supported as we believe it’s important to recognise both the brave people that work with these beautiful horses, and of course the horses themselves.
Guaranteed owners’ badges
It shouldn’t really be necessary to highlight it but not all syndicates will guarantee you two owners’ badges every time your horse runs.
Some operate on a rotational basis, or just offer a single badge – not much fun if, like most of our owners, you’d prefer to enjoy your racing experience with a partner or friend. Again, it shouldn’t need highlighting but as an owner you’ll receive your share of all the prize money and sales revenue your horse earns.
