Big thrills...

ENIGMA provide racehorse syndicate shares at a fraction of the normal cost.

Through our members' forum we invest in a wide range of quality prospects both flat and jumps.

Crucially, by keeping the share size small we bring high class prospects within the reach of everyone - making ownership both fun AND affordable. 

​ENIGMA syndicate owners have enjoyed over 300 winners to date, including Gr.1 victories from Cheltenham to Longchamp.

 

And yet shares start from just £125.00, including all upkeep for the first season. 

 

With a full ownership experience, where shareholders enjoy regular opportunities to go racing. 

Plus yard visits, prize money and of course the proceeds of any sale.

 

A galloping success

ENIGMA members enjoy a high quality racing forum and the first choice of all new horses as they come in.

 

It's proved a winning formula.

Group 1 victories include the Prix de l'Abbaye and Premio Jockey Club. We've also finished 2nd in the St Leger, the Nunthorpe and the Queen Mary.

Over jumps we've won Grade 1's at the Cheltenham and Punchestown Festivals and 'Hurdler of the Year' at the McCoy awards.

Annual ENIGMA membership starts from £79.99 per annum (equivalent to just £1.54 per week).

How it works

Typically, we buy a stake of between 2.5% and 5%, split into a syndicate of 12 to 28 shares.

The rest of the horse is sold to a maximum of 19 other people.

So, unlike other low-cost share schemes - with hundreds, if not thousands of owners - with ENIGMA spaces on yard visits are easy to obtain and badges to go racing are far more readily available.

The initial share price includes all upkeep for the first season.

Thereafter, syndicate members top up the training fees kitty once a year, paying in around £95 per share less our split of any prize money earnings.

Build a stable

Nothing feels bigger or better than building your own string of horses for year round action over flat and jumps. Literally, a taste of the big time.

With our free MyStable tool, members can print and manage their string at the click of a button.

The bloodstock

Sourced from the top sales in Europe, the bloodstock typically costs from £20,000 to £150,000 at auction.

The scheme operates in partnership with leading UK racehorse syndicators, Middleham Park and Nick Bradley Racing.

All syndicate bloodstock is owned, not leased.

ENIGMA membership

Most horses sell out quickly so we try to keep a few select shares back for the website, but they also disappear fast.

To get in pole position for new arrivals simply join the forum and become an ENIGMA member.

A very big thank you for the open morning at Richard Hannon's ...this was our first experience with Enigma and to say it was a big success would be an understatement...

...to get these results is some accomplishment. My grateful thanks from a nobody in Devon, because all my impossible teenage dreams are now being realised.

I thought the Hamdan runners would swallow him up and then he just accelerated and stretched away. This Enigma racing adventure, just gets better and better...
