Ownership opportunities with Andy Crook:
ALONG CAME THEO 2010 bay gelding
Race Type: Jumps – Hurdles Sire: Vertical Speed (FR) Dam: Kachina (IRE)
Although turning 9yo this year, Theo has only had 14 races, having been beset with niggling problems for the last season or two. This smart looking gelding obviously has talent as he has finished in the first three in 7 of his 14 races.
Theo is available on a free lease basis for just £80 +VAT per month for a 5% share with nothing extra to pay.
CRAKEHALL LAD (IRE) 2011 chestnut gelding
Race Type: Flat, Jumps, All Weather Sire: Manduro (GER) Dam: My Uptown Girl
This reliable chestnut gelding has already won on the Flat, the All Weather and over Hurdles. He is the ideal fun, dual-purpose horse and he will continue to run on the Flat and over Hurdles during the summer.
He is for sale and competitively priced at £500 per 5% share and then just £80 +VAT per month ‘all-in’.
DONALD DUX 2014 bay gelding
Race Type: Jumps Sire: Sholokhov (IRE) Dam: Good Shine (IRE)
This likeable gelding was bought at Goffs August Sale with a view to running in Bumpers and began his training programme the day after his arrival at Ashgill Stables. He is an interesting prospect with a decent pedigree and is available at an almost give away price. A 25% share is available for only £500 and then training fees of £7.50 +VAT per day.
LORD FRANKLIN 2009 chestnut gelding
Race Type: Flat, AW & Hurdles Sire: Ice Man Dam: Zell (IRE)
A chestnut gelding who has already won eleven times. He was bought at Goffs November HIT sale to be a dual purpose horse so will be trained to race over hurdles. He is the ideal fun, dual-purpose horse and he will continue to run on the Flat and over Hurdles during the summer.
5% shares in him are for sale at £350 each and then just £80 +VAT per month ‘all-in’ per share.
OUR CILLA 2014 grey mare
Race Type: Jumps Sire: Sixties Icon Dam: Kinetix
A Flat-winning mare with a promising NH career in front of her. Recently purchased by Andy, she has taken readily to her new home and is schooling well. Two 25% shares remain, each competitively priced at just £1,995.
She could prove to be a bargain buy.
You own the horse and are responsible for the training costs as well as receiving all of the owner’s prize money. Bring a horse you already own or tell Andy what type of horse you’re looking for (Bumper/Hurdler/Chaser/Flat) and he will assist you every step of the way. No charge for advice on potential purchases, providing the horse is put into training with him for at least one season once it’s been bought.
There are usually shares available (e.g. 10%, 25%, etc) in some of our horses. The cost of these shares vary depending on the value of the horse and the size of the share. Training costs will be pro-rata, according to the size of the share.
We usually have some horses, or shares in them, available to lease. This is a good introduction to racehorse ownership as you only pay a fixed monthly fee that includes all training and racing costs for your horse. You don’t pay the initial purchase price as you would for full ownership of a horse.
The least expensive option and a great way to start. A fixed monthly fee will give you a smaller share in one or more horses, depending on the syndicate.
Always keen to encourage people become involved in horseracing Andy established his racing club in 2011, The 100 Club. Undoubtedly the easiest way to experience “a taste of racehorse ownership”! A single, one-off payment will provide membership for TWELVE months, no extra to pay!
