ENIGMA syndicates are the perfect way to own affordable shares in quality horses.
Through our innovative system, we have experienced ownership at the highest level for no more than hobby levels of outlay:
In 2016, ENIGMA syndicates won three Listed stakes, a Group 3 and a Group 1. We even managed 2nd in the St Leger.
Yet most of our shares cost £250 or less.
Flat: Richard Hannon, Richard Fahey, Mark Johnston, Sir Mark Prescott, David O'Meara, Roger Charlton, Marco Botti, Kevin Ryan, Karl Burke & Gordon Elliott.
National Hunt: Nicky Henderson, Gordon Elliott, Jess Harrington, David Pipe & Ben Pauling.

How it works
ENIGMA Racing brings together people interested in splitting the cost of buying a racehorse share.
Typically, we purchase 2.5% to 15%, shared between 12 to 20 people.
Shoot for big prizes
Tilting at big racres isn't easy - but by pooling our money, we greatly increase the quality of horse we can afford to buy.
This makes a huge difference to your chance of connecting with a really nice horse.
Shares are purchased through close connections with some of the biggest UK racehorse managers.
The horses we buy in to cost anything up to £120,000 at auction.
However, by dividing the cost, we normally bring the share price down to £250 or less.

Q: Is there a monthly payment for training fees? No. The share price includes all the initial training fees - we just top up the kitty once per year, which usually costs between £70 and £110 per share.
Q: Can I visit the yard? You are invited to attend regular visits and gallop mornings. We visit most yards around 4 times a year. These tend to be very social occasions!
Q: How do I apply for an Owners' & Trainers' badge to go racing? You just email for badges. Some badges will be free, others are paid for on collection at cost price. For really big meetings, we simply run a ballot for those we can obtain.

The shares are exclusive to members of the ENIGMA forum - our specialist online horse racing community.

"A very big thank you for the open morning at Richard Hannon's ...this was our first experience with Enigma and to say it was a big success would be an understatement..."
"...to get these results is some accomplishment. My grateful thanks from a nobody in Devon, because all my impossible teenage dreams are now being realised."
"I thought the Hamdan runners would swallow him up and then he just accelerated and stretched away. This Enigma Racing lark, just gets better and better...."
