Cheltenham & South West Syndicate
Launched in October 2016, The Jockey Club Ownership Cheltenham & South West Syndicate enjoyed a very successful first season with four wins from seventeen runs.
The Syndicate features a host of benefits including annual member access to Cheltenham, Exeter, Warwick and Wincanton for two jump racing seasons: 2016/17 and 2017/18. Designed as an introduction to racing ownership the Cheltenham & South West Syndicate is for jump racing fans who share the dream of a Festival winner and have a love of our sport. Membership should not be seen as an investment; it’s for the fun, excitement and ups and downs of racehorse ownership.
Applications for the current Syndicate are now closed but please contact Lucy Wheeler to register your interest for future Syndicate membership - firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01242 537675.
