Welcome to 4Racing
The Friendly, Personal & Charitable Racing Syndicate
Our First Year with Snowy Burrows
Enjoy the experience of racehorse ownership with the 4Racing Owners Club
Each syndicate period lasts for twelve months. For an annual payment or monthly payments by standing order our members get a taste of what it is like to be an owner and cheer on their horse on racedays. Unilke other big syndicates 4Racing only ever sell 100 shares in each of our horses, giving you that feeling of being really involved. So each share sold gives members a 1% share in the horse and a 1% share of any prize money earned by the horse in that syndicate period.
4Racing gives you the chance to experience all the fun of racehorse ownership at a fraction of the normal cost.
There is the opportunity to visit the trainer’s stables to see your horse on the gallops and meet the trainer and stable staff. Some or all of our Brand Ambassadors and some surprise guests will also be in attendance for the 4Racing stable visits.
Join us at the races...
Every member of the 4Racing Owners Club is entitled to apply for an Owners badge (which includes entry to the parade ring to meet the trainer and jockey) when their 4Racing Owners Club horse is running. If demand outstrips supply the badges will be allocated by ballot and when a complimentary owners badge isn’t available, there may be an opportunity to purchase a discounted entry badge (subject to each racecourse's terms and conditions and availability).
Share in the success...
You will be paid 1% per share you own of any prize money won by the horse and this will be distributed amongst all of the 4Racing Owners Club shareholders in that horse at the end of each syndicate period.
As a 4Racing Owners Club member you will receive regular updates by email. Wherever possible we will send video updates too, along with race reports, gallop news & much more.
You will also be invited to 4Racing Owners Club's PRIVATE Facebook & WhatsApp Groups, exclusively for owners, where there will be regular updates from us and video, audio and text updates from the trainers and their staff. You will be able to join in the discussions about our horses and other racing related topics of interest.
The Charity aspect of 4Racing...
We started off in 2020 by running a fund-raising campaign called 4Racing v COVID19 to support stable staff after the effects of racing being shutdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The 4Racing Owners Club was born because of this as we wanted our horses to run on behalf of the campaign, for which we are Charity Partners of Racing Welfare and supporting Riders Minds. This with did with our first horse, Snowy Burrows, where 100% of any surplus money, over and above the expenses the horse incurs will be paid to the fund at the end of the first years syndication.
This has only been achieveable due to the immense genorosity of our trainers, who have made huge financial sacrifices to support us.
Any other horses will operate in a similar way with the trainer of each horse nominating a charity of their choice, where this surplus, over and above the expenses will be paid to, following the annual syndicate period.
This way between us, you the owners & the trainers we are giving something back to the fantastic sport that gives us so much pleasure.

The welfare of rachorses is 4Racing and our trainers number one priority. If a horse has a setback in training or is deemed not to be fit enough to race, then the horse will be rested and looked after until fit and ready. We are extremely passionate about the welfare of all of our horses, and will always ensure that any trainer we use has the same ethical approach as us.
The Charities that 4Racing Support
At the outset when 4Racing was set up we approached Racing Welfare who were only too pleased to have us as official charity partners and as such we donated £5,000 to them at the end of the first year of syndication of Snowy Burrows and will be raising money for them again with our Morning Gloria syndicate, so any surplus money, after Morning Gloria's related expenses in training with Kayley Woollacott will be donated to Racing Welfare.
Racing Welfare supports the workforce of the British horseracing and Thoroughbred breeding industry. They give professional guidance and support to the dedicated stud, stable and support staff whose work is vital for the well-being of our sport.
Riders Minds was an inititaive we became aware of after hearing so many horrific stories regarding the mental illness of so many people and they support horse riders from every walk of live, not just horse racing. We raised £1,775 for Riders Minds, after Snowy Burrows related expenses in training with Rebecca Menzies during her first year with us.
Riders Minds is an online bespoke resource dedicated to supporting the mental health and well-being of all horse riders.
