BGC Racing is delighted to offer 5% shares in the Willie Mullins-trained six-year-old Shantou gelding Itsonlyrocknroll.
Syndicate members will be entitled to two owners' and trainers' badges every time the horse runs, a share of all prize-money earned and, once the horse is fully syndicated, a trip will be organised to Willie's legendary Closutton headquarters. That will afford members a wonderful opportunity to meet all of the many stars housed at the stable.
Itsonlyrocknroll has made a very encouraging start to his career and promises much for the future. He won a Clonmel bumper on his third outing and has been placed in two of his four hurdle races to date. Everything he's done at this stage is a bonus as he wants further and bigger obstacles.
Willie bought the horse with a view to him developing into a Grand National type of the future and has seen nothing to dissuade him from that objective since. He will have a summer hurdling campaign before going novice chasing in the autumn. All of the horse's best days remain ahead of him and, as a typical Shantou, he can only improve for fencing.Willie says the GRAND NATIONAL in 2020 is the target for this horse, as in time he is going to need a longer trip and a test of jumping. Exciting words from the master trainer.
This is a rare opportunity to get involved with an exciting young horse in training with the perennial Irish Champion Trainer. Don't miss out!
The 5% share will cost £2,000 up front and will be followed by a monthly ongoing fee of £125. You shall recieve 2 Owners and Trainers badges every time the horse runs, as well as an invite to our stable visit at Willie's this coming autumn.
