Meet and chat with Syndicates and Racing Clubs

Syndicates and clubs will be on hand in the Syndicate Village to discuss an alternative avenue into racehorse ownership and to find out the right type of ownership to suit you. The Racehorse Owners Association will be present to answer any questions and to talk through the benefits and thrills racehorse ownership can provide.

Ownership Talks

A series of educational talks will take place throughout the day from syndicate managers, trainers and racing personalities sharing their knowledge and experience on shared ownership.

Parade of horses with shares available

Before racing begins, a parade of horses in training with shares available will take place in the Parade Ring. Racegoers will have the opportunity to buy shares on the day or simply learn about the process of purchasing shares in a racehorse and what to look for in a young horse. The ownership journey could start sooner than you think!

Meet an ex-racehorse

Racegoers will have the opportunity to meet an ex-racehorse up close and pose any questions about what the sport offers its equine participants and the career possibilities they have once they have retired from racing.

Virtual Reality Ownership Experience

Picturing yourself as a racehorse owner will get a whole lot easier with a virtual reality ownership experience where racegoers can step into the shoes of an owner using a VR headset. Experience the world of racehorse ownership – in 360 degrees!
