Personal Racehorse Owners started just over a year ago, when we had a vision that racehorse ownership should be something that the 'everyday working man or woman' could get involved in and have some fantastic days out with. Horse racing is the second most watched sport in the UK behind football, a huge audience, most of which will be your everyday enthusiast or punter. We give people a chance to own a small share in their very own racehorse from as little as £30 per month and by doing so they would receive; Their share of any prize money the horse may win, Owners & Trainers tickets on race-days, opportunities to attend organised stable visits, regular email updates on their horse, also gain access to our social group on Facebook, a free certificate to frame and their own club badge. One of the main benefits is the opportunity to attend race-days as an owner, get exclusive access into the owners & trainers enclosures, meet the trainer/jockey in the parade ring pre race and hopefully be in the winner’s enclosure with a glass of champagne!
As you can see in our video/picture we've had some fantastic days out already and there's a good 'club' atmosphere about we are doing. We currently have just under 100 members involved across our 6 horses and there's a real camaraderie for 'Team PRO' as we are most commonly called.
We've come a long way in a year, expanding the syndicate from 2 horses to 6 through the help of our various trainers. However it's time for us to take PRO to a new level and the reason for starting crowd-funding is that we are looking to invest in a new horse of significant quality to add to our growing syndicate. We're looking to add something of proven class to our ranks to really boost our presence and hopefully gain a few victories for the syndicate in the process. We'd also like to expand our reach through various advertising platforms, to help spread the word about affordable ownership. We've been using various newspaper adverts, Facebook ads, Google Adwords etc but we'd like to try and extend this to really help drive the name out there.
