Trotting Club’s 2019 Syndicate selling fast

“Syndicates offer Kiwis an affordable way to race well-bred horses trained by top trainers. They also provide great networking opportunities and most importantly they’re a lot of fun,” says Andrew Jamieson, Syndicate Manager at the Auckland Trotting Club.

He says the Auckland Trotting Club’s 2019 Syndicate is now open and is selling fast. This follows the club choosing three leading New Zealand trainers to select and buy three horses at the yearling sales earlier this year for syndication. Each young horse comes with great breeding and much promise.

“Our 2019 Syndicate will be racing three well-bred yearlings by top sires Bettor’s Delight, American Ideal and up-and-comer Alta Christiano.”

The three horses people now have a chance to own and race are called Bet West, Christianshavtime and Alta Redeemer. The latter is a half-brother to recent Addington winner Alta Orlando and will be trained by Robert Dunn.

Syndication, or shared ownership, is fast becoming the most popular means for people to race horses. Mr Jamieson says as an authorised syndicator, the club has a great track-record when it comes to establishing and overseeing successful horse racing syndications.

Advertising is now underway, with the call going out: ‘Ever wanted to own and race a pacer?’ He says over 30 shareholders have been locked in already, with many more making enquiries and impressed with the quality of the horses on offer.

Auckland Trotting Club’s Racing Manager Regan Cotter says the club is committed to ongoing increases to stakes, making joining a syndicate an even more exciting proposition. What’s more he says there’s no bigger thrill than watching your own horse compete.

“Key to harness racing’s future is lifting ownership and involvement regardless of anyone’s level of expertise, budget, or prior interest. Syndicates play a big part in that,” says Mr Cotter.
