- Excellent and friendly customer service – A member of staff is in the office 6 days a week, meaning we can provide instant & up-to-date information on your horse by newsletters, emails, text messages & our unique 24hr Owner information line which is updated daily. Why not give it a try? 01825 891924 (this is NOT a premium rate call.)

Know where you stand
- Fully transparent costs – Each quarter a statement of accounts is provided so owners can see all the income and expenditure of the syndicate.
- All prize money goes to the syndicate – Each horse has it’s own bank account with Weatherbys and all prize money is paid directly into the account after it is received. Syndicates managers will not take a percentage.
- Annual return of surplus – At the end of each season owners will receive a full accounts summary and enjoy a return of any account surplus.
- Early return of surplus – When large sums of prize money is won during the season, early surplus payments will be made to owners.
- No hidden charges – if something unexpected happens during the agreement (like a large vets bill for example) and the bank account needs more money this is covered by Heart of the South Racing. You will not be asked to pay anymore than your monthly contribution.
- Maximising your days at the races – Our trainers aim to run your horse mainly in the Southern half of England, giving you the maximum opportunity to see your horse run.
- Enjoying a good horse – Our emphasis is on winning and having fun, and if we have a good horse we keep him or her. You can be assured that if you own a good horse, it will not be sold early unless ALL owners agree.
- Welcome pack – On joining a syndicate, owners will receive a welcome pack including a Heart of the South metal owners badge, a photograph of the horse and a personalised share certificate with pedigree
- Peace of mind at all times – All our syndicates are run within the BHA (British Horseracing Authority) guidelines & rules and their new code of conduct. We are founder members of the RSA for that extra bit of reassurance.
