Race Horse Syndication
We love horse racing, in our business at Knightsbridge we have a focus on breeding and bloodlines, if you are in the market for a horse or are looking to sell it would behoove you (pun intended) to contact us.
I started life in the racing industry, moved over to equity trading and am now back in racing as well. For us their is very little difference.
We value horse shares the same way we value equities, a cold hard look at the fundamentals, the calculation of future earnings and the popularity of the bloodline. We are strictly commercial, not trying to hit home runs just making sure we do not lose money, that is always the first step in successful investing, if your interested in investing in that at a global level email me [email protected]
As a helpful guide based purely on my opinion with no guarantee of success, this is how I value a horse or a Race Horse Syndication.
Lets break down the model:
Geldings, no residual value.
Colts, you need a black-type well bred horse for it to have any residual value, if it is a champion then the return could be phenomenal.
Fillys, much easier, good breeding and some race performance and you can make money breeding.
Race Winnings, this can be huge, mostly it is not, but the industry in Australia is strong so it is one of the best markets to be in for winnings.
Breeding, for us this is the big money and our safety net on racing.
What to look for
Racing, I won’t even attempt to answer that, you have a form guide, barrier trials and breeding my only advise is read it well and try not to get too excited.
Breeding, commercial bloodlines, yep you may breed a champion from and obscure line, but you will not get rich breeding and selling unless you are at the cutting edge of commercial viability (that is our expertise).
If you love racing then you will love owning a race horse, the whole horse or 1 share of 50 makes no difference, the excitement and the thrill is not diminished, in fact, it is even more exciting when there are a few owners.
