ENIGMA Racing syndicates
ENIGMA Racing shared racehorse ownership, makes your money go further.
We set out to experience the thrill of ownership at the highest level, on a budget. Proper ownership, with prize money, yard visits and badges to go racing.
In 2016 ENIGMA syndicates won three Listed stakes, a Group 3 and a Group 1. We even managed 2nd in the St Leger. In March 2017, our first runner at the Festival came 3rd in the Kim Muir.
Yet most of our shares cost £250 or less.
Flat: R Hannon, R Fahey, D O'Meara, R Charlton, Sir M Prescott, H Palmer, K Ryan, M Johnston, Marco Botti, Joseph O'Brien, Roger Fell & K Dalgleish.
National Hunt: N Henderson, A King, W Greatrex, Ben Pauling & K Dalgleish.
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.

"We were made to feel very welcome on the Nicky Henderson stable visit. We saw all the syndicate horses and Nicky also took us around the stable stars. Finally, they invited us over to the house for drinks and refreshments. What stunning surroundings!"
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.

"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...."
