Racehorse ownership with Ed de Giles

It is very important that owning a racehorse is an enjoyable and rewarding experience for all and we believe that it is essential that our owners are kept up to date with all aspects of the training progress of their horses. Not only is Lilly Hall Farm a top class racing yard, it is also our home, in which owners are very welcome at anytime. After an early morning start watching the horses on the gallops, we would be delighted to discuss the progress and future plans for your racehorse over a hearty breakfast!

Through our invaluable contacts and knowledge we will always be able to find a racehorse that suits all your requirements.

Please check our horses for sale page and feel free to call Ed at anytime to discuss further.

There are many ways of owning a racehorse:

  • Sole Ownership - whereby you will be the owner of the horse and no one else. As such, any costs and profits will be yours alone.
  • Co-ownership – co-ownership involves more than one owner and is a great way of enjoying all aspects of racehorse ownership without the financial burden.  Not only is it more affordable, but it is also a great fun and sociable experience for all of the horse racing enthusiasts involved.  There are 4 ways in which this can be done:
  1. Joint Ownership – this consists of 2-12 individuals, and the horse(s) can run in either a joint ownership’s name or the name of a joint owner.
  2. Racing Partnership – this consists of 2-20 individuals, of which at least 2 must become, or already be, registered owners.
  3. Company Ownership - whereby a company owns a horse.  This is great way to advertise your company, as well providing fantastic corporate entertainment opportunities.
  4. Leasing – it is possible to lease a racehorse which involves the ownership of a racehorse for a set period of time, and the costs the horse incurs becomes the responsibility of the lessee for the lease period. In return the horse runs under the ownership of the lessee.
  • Racing Club - Racing Clubs are not an independent form of ownership, and by joining or becoming a member of a Racing Club you receive the benefits of that Club, but are not entering into racehorse ownership yourself. It is, however, a great way of being involved in racing, and a good way to start should you be interested in subsequently getting involved in racehorse ownership.
