Simon Earle Racing

Trainer of National Hunt and flat horses at The Beeches Farm in Sutton Veny, Wiltshire, a racing yard he converted from a dairy farm. Having survived a difficult period when a lingering virus struck, he is now building his business back up again. Simon provides a unique approach to training racehorses.

His training approach is centred on the horse, with the aim of preventing and avoiding many of the common injuries, ailments and stress-related problems that are frequently associated with racehorses in training. His web site provides in-depth detail of his training methods, together with information regarding horses in training, facilities at the yard and the owner experience.

Simon Earl Racing offer a variety of different types of racehorse ownership, including:

  • Sole ownership - All costs and profits will be yours alone. You'll have close involvement with any decisions regarding the horse and you can choose your own racing colours and name your horse (if it's not already named), with the horse run in your own name;
  • Partnership - Two or more people who want to share the ownership of one or more horses, and where all members of the Partnership are registered owners. Partnerships allow owners to define the percentage of each horse they own and split costs and winnings in accordance with ownership share;
  • Syndicate - For people who want to share the ownership of one or more horses. A syndicate is managed and administered by the syndicator/s. Only the syndicator/s must register as a Sole/Company owner. It isn't necessary for members of the syndicate to register as owners;
  • Racing Club - By joining or becoming a member of a Racing Club you receive all the benefits of that club but you are not entering into racehorse ownership yourself;
  • Company - A company can register as an owner, owning horses 100%. The horse will be in the sole ownership of the company and the company's shareholders. Companies can also be an entity within a joint ownership or racing partnership. The company must appoint a registered agency to act on its behalf;
  • Leasing - This involves ownership of a racehorse for a set period of time. Costs that the horse incurs become the responsibility of the lessee for the lease period and in return the horse will run under the ownership of the lessee. At the end of the lease agreement the ownership of the horse returns to the lessor/the legal owner.
