Syndicates and clubs

Racing syndicates, racing partnerships and racing clubs offer a cost-effective way to experience the thrill of ownership. Co-ownership also provides a way to meet new friends and experience racing from the inside.

What is a Racing Syndicate / Racing Partnership?

A syndicate member or partner shares the ownership of the horse with others in the party. Have a read of the ROA's  top seven tips for those joining a syndicate. There's also a handy template syndicate agreement right here.

What is a Racing Club?

A racing club is set up and the club is the owner of the horse. Members of the club will have no ownership rights but will receive agreed benefits such as arranged days out to the yard or to the races.

You should always speak to the racing club or syndicate organiser at length to get more information and the financial commitment involved before signing up. Always make sure you have a written agreement in place.

For information regarding which clubs and partnerships are affiliated with the Racing Syndicates Association (RSA), please visit their website:
