After a few runs at two Desert River improved to win and be placed twice at three. We have now given him time to mature and we look forward to a very successful four-year-old campaign. These sprinting, strong types often improve considerably at four and five years and even later. He gives me the impression he will be one of those. He is by the very successful and popular stallion Showcasing, in fact he looks remarkably like his sire. He shows plenty of speed and I think his trip will be five to six furlongs and I expect him to keep on improving throughout the year. There is so much fun to be had with this gelding and I highly recommend him.

Update - 22nd May: 

He ran a fine race first time out at Yarmouth to finish third, which filled us full of hope for the coming season. Unfortunately he disgraced himself next time and refused, once again, to go in the stalls. I don’t think it was his fault as he wasn’t helped by the stall handlers and he is now banned from having a stalls test for six months. I have already schooled him over hurdles and he has shown that he has an aptitude for it. Will he stay over hurdles, that is the big question, but a horse that usually gets seven furlongs and a mile on the flat usually stays two miles over hurdles. A track like Fakenham, Stratford and Southwell would suit ideally, but we will make a collective decision before anything happens.

How it all works

As one of the pioneers of multiple ownership, we are continuing our successful syndicates in 2017. One-twelfth shares in each of the racehorses are available. To express interest, please contact Diane on the address below.

Diane will be you contact for all information on running plans, stable visits, race day badges etc. She will be ably assisted by Mike Jenkins, commonly known as Jenko. Di will keep you informed on a weekly basis, with training updates, photos and videos. In fact, anything that can maximise you enjoyment of owning a racehorse.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute I have spent as a part of such a fantastic yard... a special thanks must go to you Mr Jenkins... you know your job and are always on hand to answer any questions."

"Saying that it was the best day of my life would be to understate how I felt, one or two people thought I was having a heart attack when he crossed the line in front. I was more in danger of that when we got on the champagne."

"I'd like to take this opportunity to express my deep and sincere gratitude to all at the yard , and to you in particular, for your constant courtesy and professionalism. It is always a pleasure to deal with you and each visit to the stable, course or gallops a joy."

"What a fantastic day!... It was great to meet the other members, what a lovely bunch of people."

"Another brilliant win and a great day out for us all! Well done and many thanks to all the team."

''Congratulations on the new website. I love it.''

"I was delighted to watch the great win last night. What a great buzz! ... The joy of part owning a horse (however small) doesn't stop at that particular person"

''I can appreciate  there has been a great deal of thought and planning gone into building the site, you have done an excellent job. Clean and easy to navigate too, which is a must for a user-friendly website.''

''Just viewed the new website - it's great.''



  • All net prize-money won and the proceeds of any sale are divided proportionately between members.
  • Our owners are welcome to visit the yard to see their horses in training on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
  • One complimentary owners' badge is guaranteed per member when your horse runs.
  • There is no limit to the number of shares an individual, or group of people, can hold.
  • Some members have been with us since the 1980s, which is testament in itself to the enjoyment these syndicates bring.

Once a twelfth share has been purchased, a monthly payment of £250 to be paid retrospectively (starting from January 1st 2017) is required to cover all keep costs.

There will be nothing more to pay, other than in exceptional circumstances such as travel to race abroad or unusual veterinary bills. The monthly payment covers basic training costs, entry fees, travel to meetings, jockey fees, farrier's charges etc.

It is the responsibility of each individual member to sell his or her share, if they wish to leave the syndicate, although obviously we would help with this as far as possible. However, when a member sells their share it shall be on the understanding that potential purchasers will be made fully aware of the syndicator's  current terms and conditions. If payments are not received for two successive months the share will be deemed to have lapsed, and will be lost with no refund or prize share due.

Our aim is for every member to experience the joy of racehorse ownership:

- Why not give a share in one of our syndicates, as a birthday or Christmas present? It makes the perfect gift. 

- We run each syndicate with the personal touch.

- Each member will be kept fully updated on the progress of their horse.

- We strive to create a sense of involvement for everyone, not only in their own horse but also in the whole stable.

We are constantly looking to put together new syndicates, so if you are interested in becoming involved, either in one of our present syndicates, or in the future, please contact:
