Fractional Ownership Explained - Join a Syndicate - Stride Racing


What is fractional ownership in racehorses?

Fractional ownership in racehorses is when individuals buy a share in one or more racehorses, sharing the costs & profits amongst the group, which is a called a 'Syndicate’. Fractional ownership splits the cost of an expensive racehorses, making it possible for a wider array of horse racing enthusiasts to own part of a top-class racehorse.

Understanding fractional ownership

Fractional ownership in horse racing, commonly known as racehorse syndication, has been a part of the industry for decades. It allows those without the means of buying high class racehorses off their own bat, to join with other aspirational owners, with the view to purchasing more expensive well-bred racehorses, which may have the ability of getting to the very top of industry. This mechanism for buying racehorses is now being used across several industries, in asset classes such as vacation homes (Pacaso), art (Masterworks), wine (Vinovest) and many others.

Fractional owners (syndicate members) also take on the benefits and losses that come with ownership: If a racehorse wins a race, prize money from the race will be disseminated amongst the syndicate members but its value (as a racehorse) may also increase, individual shares will thus appreciate, too. So, while the syndicate member will be able to enjoy the experience of horse ownership, they also own an asset, that they may subsequently be able to sell on at a profit.

Why and How to Join a Horse Racing Syndicate

A racehorse syndicate is a group of people who buy shares in one or more racehorses. The shareholders will share the costs of ownership, such as food and vet bills. However, they get a share of any winnings. As a result, many prefer syndicates to outright ownership.

The main reason people join a racehorse syndicate is to enjoy the thrill of owning and racing their own horse. However, it’s not just about having fun – there are also financial benefits to be gained from joining a syndicate.

What are the different types of racehorse syndicates

A racehorse syndicate is a group of people who pool their money to purchase a racehorse and share the costs of training, stabling, and upkeep. A syndicate is often set up as a limited company with shares being sold to raise money. The shareholders then elect a board of directors to oversee the running of the company.

There are two main types of racehorse syndicates: open and closed. An open syndicate allows any person or entity to become a shareholder in the company by buying shares from one or more existing shareholders. A closed syndicate restricts membership and may restrict which horses can be owned by members.

The type of racehorse syndicates that you want will depend on your goals for joining the group, your level of involvement in horse racing, and how much risk you are willing to take on financially.

How Returns are Made with a Racehorse Syndicate

A racehorse syndicate is a group of people who pool their money to buy a horse and then share any winnings. As a result, understanding the potential of a horse is key.

In some cases, the syndicate has to buy a horse and then share any winnings that are made from that horse's racing career. In other cases, the syndicate just buys shares in an already successful horse.
