FOB Partnerships

Home FOB Partnerships

The FOB Racing Partnerships (FOBRP) were instigated after the success of our Summer and Winter Racing Clubs in 2016/17. The aim of each partnership is to bring together a group of like-minded individuals into the world of racehorse ownership, at a fraction of the cost of owning a horse outright. It’s a fantastic opportunity to dip your toe into this arena for the first time, or to add an another string to your ownership portfolio.

With each partnership we look for expressions of interest from a group of people (usually 8-12) and once that number has been reached, we source a horse according to the budget. The first FOBRP bought Ocean Cove for £25K with each of the ten members paying £2.5K and then £200pcm training fees.(ie. we’re not charging additional fees for purchase or running the syndicates). The second FOBRP (eight members) paid £1K per share of Sissinghurst and ongoing training fees of £250pcm.

All members of our partnerships are welcome to visit the yard whenever they wish and will be kept updated of race plans and other matters by Sally. You can also follow us on Twitter (@FOBRPartnership)

We are currently looking for one final person to fill our second partnership. Sadly Sissinghurst had to retire (two wins, two seconds from five runs), so we’re reforming the that partnership and we have three year old Phoenician Star (Mastercraftsman x Place De L’Etoile) to take his place. We’re looking for eight members (there are already seven confirmed), each to pay a £2.5K buy in and then £250 pcm ‘all in’ training fees.

We’re also taking names for our 7th partnership. This one will be different in that the members are not purchasing the horse, but leasing a mare named Lady Shine (Presenting x Miss Mary Mac). For this we’re looking for 10 members to pay £200 up front (to enable us to set up the partnership, bank account etc) and then pay £200pcm for the duration of the lease period. Each member will be entitled to a tenth share in any prize money accrued

If you’re interested in either option, please contact us via sally@fergalobrienracing.com or ring the yard on 01451 850 538. We’re also happy to take expressions of interest for future partnerships.
