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%, split between 12 to 20 people.
Shooting for big prizes
Taking on the super rich isn't easy, but by pooling our money we can greatly increase the quality of horse we can afford to buy.
This gives us a realistic budget to buy into classy prospects, to help us compete for major prizes.
Shares are purchased through close connections with some of the biggest UK racehorse managers.
The horses we buy into were valued at anything up to £125,000 at auction.
But dividing the cost, we aim to bring our share price down to under £250.
Our record, since 2013
Won the Premio del Jockey Club, Group 1
Won 7 other Listed / Group races
Placed 2nd in the St Leger
Placed in 6 other Listed / Group races
Placed 2nd in the Ebor, 3rd in Northumberland Plate

Our first runner at the Festival was 3rd in the Kim Muir
We now manage over 40 syndicates with leading trainers throughout GB & IRE
2017 was our best ever, with 41 winners
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.
How to purchase

"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...."
