Marie's Rock (IRE)

Spotlight: Marie's Rock

We are buzzing to have a stake in Marie's Rock - current antepost favourite for the 2020 Festival Mares' Novice hurdle - through our close partnership with Middleham Park Racing.

Marie's Rock came to us as a raw unbroken 3yo. Now a perfect 3 wins from 3 starts, she's already rated higher than the 2019 winner.

Like all our shares, the ENIGMA syndicate is made up entirely of forum members, who raised a hand and split the cost between them.


Enjoy the thrill of racehouse share ownership, at a price you can afford.

Many of our members have already owned a stake in horses of Listed or Group calibre.

In just 6 seasons, we have won 11 pattern races up to Group 1 level and been placed in 2nd in the St Leger.

Yet most of our shares cost £275 or less.

Trainers include

Flat: R Hannon, R Fahey, M Johnston, Joseph O'Brien, Sir M Prescott, D O'Meara, R Charlton, M Bell, M Botti, K Ryan, K Burke, D Lanigan, Ed Walker, Martyn Meade and Archie Watson.

National Hunt: Paul Nicholls, Nicky Henderson, David Pipe and Ben Pauling.

"Proper ownership, with prize money, yard visits and badges to go racing..."


How it works

ENIGMA Racing brings together people interested in splitting the cost of buying a racehorse share.

Typically, we purchase 2.5% or 5%, split between 10 to 20 people.

It's a fabulous way to get involved for minimal outlay.

Most shares cost between £150 and £275, including all upkeep for the first 5 to 8 months.

Thereafter, we top up the training fees kitty once a year - circa. £100 per share, less our split of prize money earnings.

Build a stable

With ENIGMA anyone can aspire to own a share in an exciting horse - with yard visits, badges, prize money and the proceeds of any sale

Pooling our money means we can afford to buy into the most exciting prospects - whilst making it easy to gradually build your very own stable of stars.

The bloodstock

The horses we buy into typically cost from £30,000 to £160,000 at auction.

All shares are purchased and split in partnership with some of the UK's most successful racehorse syndicators.

"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 lark, just gets better and better...."

Q: Is there a monthly payment for training fees? No. The share price includes all the initial training fees - we just top up the kitty once per year, which usually costs between £80 and £110 per share.

Q: Can I visit the yard? You are invited to attend regular visits and gallop mornings. We visit most yards around 4 times a year. These tend to be very social occasions!

Q: How do I apply for an Owners' & Trainers' badge to go racing? You just email for badges. Some badges will be free, others are paid for on collection at cost price. For really big meetings, we simply run a ballot for those we can obtain.
