ENIGMA Racing syndicates

ENIGMA Racing shared racehorse ownership, makes your money go further.

We set out to experience ownership at the highest level, on a budget.

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.

The trainers

Flat: Richard Hannon, Richard Fahey, Mark Johnston, Sir Mark Prescott, David O'Meara, Kevin Ryan, Roger Charlton, Hugo Palmer, Michael Bell, Marco Botti, Karl Burke & Gordon Elliott.

National Hunt: Nicky Henderson, Gordon Elliott, Jess Harrington, Alan King, Warren Greatrex & Ben Pauling.

"Real ownership, with prize money, yard visits and badges to go racing..."

ENIGMA Racing brings together people interested in splitting the cost of buying a racehorse share.

By clubbing together, we hugely reduce the cost of ownership for each person - while making it possible to buy into some expensive, high quality prospects.

Shares are purchased direct from top syndicators like Middleham Park Racing.

At these prices, you can even build your own string.

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 or 5 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.

How to purchase

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

Membership is £79.99 per year by direct debit, or £84.99 by card.

New syndicates form all the time - simply become an ENIGMA member to have the pick of new arrivals.

"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...."
