Horses for 2017


Showcasing ex Kathy's Rocket

(D.O.B 03.05.13)

£1,200 per 10th share

Desert River
2013 Bay Gelding
first ascendancy
Showcasing (GB)
Kathy's Rocket (USA)   
second ascendancy
Oasis Dream (GB)  
Gold Legend (USA) 
Franks Rocket Girl (USA) 
third ascendancy
Green Desert (USA)
Hope (IRE)
Zafonic (USA) 
Seattle Slew (USA)

After a few runs at two Desert River improved to win and be placed twice at three. We have now given him time to mature and we look forward to a very successful four-year-old campaign. These sprinting, strong types often improve considerably at four and five years and even later. He gives me the impression he will be one of those. He is by the very successful and popular stallion Showcasing, in fact he looks remarkably like his sire. He shows plenty of speed and I think his trip will be five to six furlongs and I expect him to keep on improving throughout the year. There is so much fun to be had with this gelding and I highly recommend him.

Update - 31st January: 

He has come back in from his holidays and has put on plenty of weight and condition. He is a bit hairy which can be expected, but he is eating really well and settling back into the routine. He will have a couple of week’s good walking exercise before we start away cantering. This break will have mentally done him the power of good and he seems very happy in himself, which is always a big plus.

Royal Applause ex Astromancer bay filly

Regal Galaxy
2013 Bay Filly
first ascendancy
Royal Applause (GB) 
Astromancer (USA)

Flying Melody  
Silver Hawk (USA) 
Colour Dance (GB) 
third ascendancy
Try My Best (USA)
Auction Ring (USA) 
Whispering Star  
Roberto (USA)  
Gris Vitesse (USA)
Rainbow Quest (USA)  
Balleta (USA)

A very attractive, sound and beautifully bred filly. She has done nothing but please me these past few months and still has improvement to come. She is thriving and is a wonderful prospect for all involved. She has had her first race over hurdles and will be running under both codes in 2017. She is highly recommended, there is so much fun to be had with her.

Update - 31st January:

Unfortunately we had a bruised hind foot with her in the frosty conditions. I think she stood on a stone which was rather solid. It has meant having to poultice her foot for several days without a shoe on. It has cleared up now and she is back in full work. Stevie rode her this morning in a piece of work over a mile on the Cambridge Road and that will have done her the world of good. We will be schooling her during the week and she will be entered up to run under both codes very shortly.

We have no syndicate entries at this stage.

How it all works

 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 Jenko on the address below.

Mike Jenkins, known to us all as Jenko (pictured left), runs Mark's syndicates and is the main point of contact for all the members. An ex-amateur jockey who also used to ride out for Mark on a regular basis, he shares his enjoyment of the sport with the members via e-mail, telephone and in person.

To contact him direct, e-mail: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

"I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute I have spent as a part of such a fantastic yard... a special thanks must go to you Mr Jenkins... you know your job and are always on hand to answer any questions."

"Saying that it was the best day of my life would be to understate how I felt, one or two people thought I was having a heart attack when he crossed the line in front. I was more in danger of that when we got on the champagne."

"I'd like to take this opportunity to express my deep and sincere gratitude to all at the yard , and to you in particular, for your constant courtesy and professionalism. It is always a pleasure to deal with you and each visit to the stable, course or gallops a joy."  


Syndicate members, Mr and Mrs Pat Swayne enjoying a morning on the gallops with Mark

"What a fantastic day!... It was great to meet the other members, what a lovely bunch of people."

"Another brilliant win and a great day out for us all! Well done and many thanks to all the team."

''Congratulations on the new website. I love it.''

"I was delighted to watch the great win last night. What a great buzz! ... The joy of part owning a horse (however small) doesn't stop at that particular person"

''I can appreciate  there has been a great deal of thought and planning gone into building the site, you have done an excellent job. Clean and easy to navigate too, which is a must for a user-friendly website.''

''Just viewed the new website - it's great.''



  • All net prize-money won and the proceeds of any sale are divided proportionately between members.
  • Our owners are welcome to visit the yard to see their horses in training on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
  • One complimentary owners' badge is guaranteed per member when your horse runs.
  • There is no limit to the number of shares an individual, or group of people, can hold.
  • Some members have been with us since the 1980s, which is testament in itself to the enjoyment these syndicates bring.

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.

Our aim is for every member to experience the joy of racehorse ownership:

- Why not give a share in one of our syndicates, as a birthday or Christmas present? It makes the perfect gift. 

- We run each syndicate with the personal touch.

- Each member will be kept fully updated on the progress of their horse.

- We strive to create a sense of involvement for everyone, not only in their own horse but also in the whole stable.

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:

Mike Jenkins, our syndicate manager, on 07774 784497 or e-mail him on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
