  • How much is ENIGMA membership?
    The annual membership subscription is £79.99 by direct debit, or £84.99 by card / PayPal.
  • How do I know when interesting horses are running?
    Many members drop into the forum daily around lunchtime. But for convenience, we also run a thread in the Spotlight section which flags interesting runners co-owned by members. Once you are an ENIGMA member, it's just 1-click to have these thread posts automatically emailed to you. It's the same simple 1-click subscribe for any favourite thread you wish to follow.
  • Can I join in with racehorse co-ownership?
    The forum has a high percentage of members who own shares in racehorses and to make their money go further, many club together to split the cost of buying shares. As a member you become eligible to participate if you wish. Many do! Members who co-own shares go on yard visits, split prize money earnings, sale proceeds and have a share in any available badges. It's been a great success. Through share co-ownership, members have finished 2nd in the St Leger, won a Group 1 on Arc Day, been placed 3 times at Royal Ascot and won Grade 1 races at both the Cheltenham and Punchestown Festivals. For those who are interested, we email out new opportunities as they come up. The rest is up to you.
  • How do I receive news and updates?
    Most members visit the forum regularly to catch up with news. For convenience, with 1-click, you can also subscribe to any favourite thread to receive a copy of any new posts by email. Our Members Handbook, supplied on joining, guides you to the best information and there to find it. We also send out ad hoc members' updates by email, to keep you informed about interesting new betting content, forum features, bloodstock and co-ownership opportunities.
  • Why is the forum not free to use?
    Much of the information disclosed is only useful because it's confidential, so the forum is unsuitable to be open to the general public. However for passionate students of the turf, it’s pure racing heaven. Run in the friendly atmosphere of a private club - where consideration and good manners are assured - ENIGMA is a haven for people who love racing and sport. Membership works out at £1.54 per week - outstanding value by any measure. Small bill, BIG thrills.
  • Do you give help on how to use the forum?
    Absolutely. On joining you receive a copy of the Members' Handbook which explains the forum features, how to create and subscribe to threads and guides you to the best information and where to find it. We make sure finding your feet is easy.
  • Are there different levels of membership?
    No. A cornerstone of ENIGMA is that everyone is treated equally. There is no extra layer of information available to some and not others. Once you are a member, you simply have access to everything.
  • How long have you been going?
    The forum was created in late 2012 and opened to new members on 1st January 2013. The concept - to create a specialist forum where form students and racing enthusiasts could commune with their peers in a friendly, knowledgeable environment. ENIGMA proved an instant success and by late 2013 members were clubbing together to buy shares in a pair of yearlings with Richard Hannon. In 2016 they won their first European Group 1 and finished 2nd in the St Leger (landing great bets along the way). Because of its confidential nature, no part of the forum has ever been free to view, however we are proud to say that the annual cost of membership has remained unchanged since outset.
  • Can I pay monthly?
    No, it's annual subs only. Because of the level of privileged information it would be unwise to allow members to dip 'in and out'. That wouldn't work. ENIGMA suits people who want to settle in and join a proper racing community. To be part of what makes that experience great and unique. There is nowhere else quite like it, and it makes sense to deliver that to people who commit for the longer haul.
  • Is there a trial membership?
    New members receive a complimentary 1-month money back guarantee. If for any reason you are not satisfied, email us in the first month for a prompt refund with our compliments. It's fair to say that the overwhelming majority not only stay but thrive in the community. For most, their only regret is not finding us sooner. Try it and see:
  • Are there any extra costs?
    There’s no bigger turn-off than joining something only to be pestered with upgrades, extras and 3rd party services. With ENIGMA there is just 1 level of membership, the top level. Our members' details are never shared with anyone else, ever. ENIGMA is also proudly and completely, advert-free. As it should be. Now see for yourself:
  • What if I want to cancel?
    If, for whatever reason, you decide to take a break from racing or betting, just email us and we will assist you. Nothing further will be collected. Should you re-start at a later date we will boost your new membership with any time remaining from your previous subscription. That comes in handy for people who run businesses or who sometimes travel extensively, through work or in retirement. We are always here to help. Join us and see for yourself:
