Our Raceworld syndicates have been running successfully for over 20 years now with many original members still involved. Racing brings together like-minded individuals which lead to lasting friendships.Raceworld colours have been carried by many winners. The likes of Connect, who was a consistently competitive Saturday sprinter, Locum, Comrade Bond, Zenarinda and Hold Firm's dam Four Miracles, who won twice at York, are all good examples of genuine fun horses who continued giving members pleasure for several seasons. The winning colt, Hold Firm (see below), continues in the same mould always giving his best.
The Raceworld sydicates are a great way to be involved with owning a share in a racehorse without breaking the bank. The exhilaration of having a winner is unbelievable and unforgettable. Mike Jenkins (see below) has run the syndicates for years, and is both very approachable and knowledgeable. He keeps all the Raceworld members informed about the horses and organises visits to the yard whenever members want to come. The yard is extremely friendly and Mark is always welcoming and ready to discuss the Raceworld horses during members' visits.
Raceworld membership can make a perfect gift for someone special in your life.
Horses for 2017:At present this year we have two exciting new two-year-olds, a colt and a filly, plus Hold Firm who is already a triple Raceworld winner and is always so reliable.
Pastoral Pursuits ex Mega 2YO chesnut colt
£1,000 per 12th share
As you can see this colt is strong and attractive. He has a very relaxed, easy walk and moves like a dream when cantering. He is a three parts brother to Marvo who was by Bahamian Bounty, the sire of Pastoral Pursuits, and won five races. He is a half brother to three other winners - Astrodonna won four races including at York and is now a broodmare; Merolicio won twice in England before becoming a multiple winner in the Middle East including winning Group races; Mystic Wind won her maiden first time out very impressively, but sustained an injury at home and never ran again.
His sire, Pastoral Pursuits, was a top rated sprinter who won the Group 1 July Cup and is the sire of many top class horses including Pastoral Player and Rose Blossom. His stock are very precocious and genuine. Both Mega and Pastoral Pursuits have the speedy Mansingh and Sing Sing in their pedigrees.
I highly recommend this colt.
Update - 8th April:
I am delighted with how he has responded to the work that we have given him and his temperament has improved no end. A strong, very attractive individual, I have always thought the world of him. His education will continue this month with much faster work, plenty of upsides work, he will see the stalls and from May onwards, we can be thinking of having a run. The experience on the racetrack is invaluable and this type of horse will benefit greatly.
Pastoral Pursuits ex Trew Class 2YO chesnut filly
£850 per 12th share
This filly is well grown and attractive with plenty of scope. She is a very good mover, and like all the mares's offspring, both strong and correct. Her dam, Trew Class, was the most genuine race mare. She won four times including at Sandown and York. We had some great days with her and this filly looks capable of similar achievements. She is half sister to multiple winners including the two lovely fillies Kathleen Francis and Jennifer J.
Her sire Pastoral Pursuits has a great record with his offspring and comes from a very speedy family. Trew Class has the extremely fast Ahonoora as her grandsire, and her dam was by the multiple group winner Polish Precedent. Northern Dancer is in both pedigrees, as is the influential sire and brilliant racehorse, Bold Lad. We think so much of this filly that we are sending her dam, Trew Class, back to be covered by Pastoral Pursuits again this season.
I have always loved this filly from when she was a foal and I anticipate that she will make into a very useful racehorse.
Update - 8th April:
I have been delighted with how this filly has done this last month, both physically and mentally she has improved. She is really enjoying cantering daily and we are starting to step up her education considerably. A strong attractive filly with plenty of scope, she is showing me ability at this stage that will continue to improve as the year goes on. I think the end of May / June time will be her first estimate race date.
Refuse To Bend ex Four Miracles bay colt
£750 per 12th share
2012 Bay Colt
What can I say about the legend of the yard. He continues in unbelievably good form and you can never get to the bottom of him. He eats everything, sleeps, canters, he is full of fun and everybody loves to ride him. There is just a little gap now when there are not many races for him, which won’t do any harm. He has won on the turf and likes it just as much as the all-weather and I am sure we will be in the winning enclosure on turf again this year. His enthusiastic group of owners follow him everywhere, and I thank them for that.
As one of the pioneers of multiple ownership, we are continuing our successful syndicates in 2017. One-twelfth shares in each of the racehorses are available. To express interest, please contact Diane Carter on the address below.

Once a twelfth share has been purchased, a monthly payment of £250 to be paid retrospectively (starting from January 1st 2017) is required to cover all keep costs.
There will be nothing more to pay, other than in exceptional circumstances such as travel to race abroad or unusual veterinary bills. The monthly payment covers basic training costs, entry fees, travel to meetings, jockey fees, farrier's charges etc.
It is the responsibility of each individual member to sell his or her share, if they wish to leave the syndicate, although obviously we would help with this as far as possible. However, when a member sells their share it shall be on the understanding that potential purchasers will be made fully aware of the syndicator's current terms and conditions. If payments are not received for two successive months the share will be deemed to have lapsed, and will be lost with no refund or prize share due.
We are constantly looking to put together new syndicates, so if you are interested in becoming involved, either in one of our present syndicates, or in the future, please contact:
