ENIGMA Racing syndicates are the perfect way to enjoy racehorse share ownership on a budget.

We offer the most affordable way possible to shoot at owning horses of Listed or Group calibre.

In just 6 seasons, we have won 10 pattern races up to Group 1 level and been placed in 2nd in the St Leger.

Yet most of our shares cost £250 or less.


Flat: Richard Hannon, Richard Fahey, Mark Johnston, Sir Mark Prescott, David O'Meara, Roger Charlton, Marco Botti, Kevin Ryan, Karl Burke, David Lanigan, Martyn Meade, Ed Walker, Mick Easterby, Bryan Smart, Keith Dalgleish, Tom Dascombe, Roger Fell and Archie Watson.

National Hunt: Nicky Henderson, Paul Nicholls, David Pipe and Alan King.

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 also dramatically reduce the cost of getting involved - so much so, for most people owning shares in several horses is easily achievable.

The bloodstock

The horses we buy into typically cost from £30,000 to £125,000 at auction.

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

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

"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...."
