Yes, you are entitled to the % share of all earnings on the horse. Prize money is calculated at the end of the season, so for Flat horses we do the calculations in December and settle the accounts in January. National Hunt accounts are calculated in May and settled in June.
The number of owners varies from horse to horse but typically we average around 12 owners per horse. It may be as low as 4 and as many as 24 in some instances.
You can terminate the contract at any point after the first 12 months. We require 1 months’ notice and it's just a case of dropping us an email.
Yes you can sell your share at any point. We may be in a position to purchase your share from you, it very much depends on the situation at the time. If you have found an owner for your share, it's just a case of sending us their details.
Nick manages the racing plans of all of the horses in conjunction with the trainers of the specific horses. You are informed when your horse has been entered 6 days before the race and declared 2 days before the race.
All offers for horses are passed on straight to the owners. At that time, Nick welcomes your opinion in terms of keeping or selling the horse. Nick recognises that many owners aren't experienced enough to know when to accept or reject offers and advises using his previous experience.
Nick manages the horses racing plans from the day they are purchased to the day they are retired. His race previews are usually very accurate in terms of how the horses run in their races and often give the opportunity to have a wager. Open Days are open to all members so you can keep up to date with all of the horses running for Nick Bradley Racing.
