How it works

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

Typically, we purchase 2.5% to 15%, split between 12 to 20 people.

Shooting for big prizes

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

Crucially, together, our combined spending power greatly increases the quality of horse we can afford to buy.

Pooling our money means we greatly reduce the cost of getting involved - even making owning shares in several horses easily achievable.

The bloodstock

The horses we buy into typically cost from £30,000 to £150,000 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.

How to purchase

Shares are advertised exclusively to members of the ENIGMA Forum - our specialist online horse racing community.

Membership is £79.99 per year by direct debit, or £84.99 by card.
