The very well-bred St James's Park is up for syndication, with 12 shares available. The horse is in training with Ralph Smith at Epsom in Surrey and the syndicate will run until the end of the current all-weather season on the 1st May, after which the horse will be sold.
St James's Park is a five-year-old gelded son of the top-class sire Invincible Spirit. He only made his racecourse debut last summer and demonstrated lots of promise on his first couple of outings in maidens. He was initially allotted a handicap rating of 63, but a few disappointing runs towards the backend of last season saw his mark dip to a current level of 52.
He made his debut for new connections early in the New Year and it signalled a return to form, as he finished a close-up fifth in a Kempton handicap over a mile. This was an effort that showed immense promise for the future.
St James's Park is out of the mare Razika who was a useful performer in her racing days in France. At stud she has produced numerous winners including the Listed-placed Exactement and the officially 108-rated Parfait.
With such talented siblings, it seems almost certain that his current mark underestimates the abilities of St James's Park. He has more than demonstrated his ability to handle an AW surface, so it surely will not be long before he finds his way into the winner's enclosure. For such a small outlay, this is a wonderful opportunity to get involved with a fun and exciting syndicate.
Terms: 1/12th ownership share for £250, plus £150 per month all-in costs.
Wind-Up Arrangements: syndicate members will receive a pro-rata share of the sell-on price after costs.
