Fortunately, you don’t have to be royalty to be part of this exciting and potentially rewarding industry. Many people, from all walks of life, become successful racehorse owners.
And you don’t need any experience – just a passion for the sport and the ability to support your racehorse through the losses as well as the wins.
One well-known South Australian, former Crows Captain now Triple M drive time announcer Mark Ricciuto , is an avid racing fan and racehorse owner. “To me, racing is just as much fun as football, and I know it will be a big part of my life long after my footy career is over. Owning a horse is a fantastic experience, and I would recommend it to anyone.”
Many first-time owners form syndicates, and owning a racehorse becomes their hobby. This is a great way to start because it gives you a taste of the racing industry without committing huge amounts of money.

We hope to see your racehorse in the Winner’s Circle one day.
