Highclere Thoroughbred Racing specialises in racehorse ownership, putting together small groups of individuals to share in a number of top quality racehorses. This enables our owners to enjoy part ownership of a racehorse and experience racing at the highest level.
Having produced seven champions, Highclere is the most successful racehorse ownership company in Europe. Highclere specialises in putting together small groups of individuals to share in a number of top quality racehorses. This enables people to own a share in a racehorse and to enjoy racing at the highest level without the very high costs normally associated with owning racehorses. Perhaps even more crucially, it gives our shareowners a significantly greater chance of success.
Indeed, since its creation in 1992, some fourteen per cent of Highclere’s runners have won or been placed in Group or Listed company, making Highclere the most successful multiple ownership company in Europe. A large part of our success has been due to the selection process employed for purchasing yearlings.
Since 1992 John Warren has purchased all of Highclere’s yearlings. John is one of the leading agents in the world, and has produced no fewer than seven champions in Lake Coniston, Tamarisk, Delilah, Petrushka, Motivator (the Royal Ascot Racing Club’s winner of the 2005 Group 1 Vodafone Derby), Memory (ROA Champion two-year-old Filly) and Harbinger.
Petrushka became the first ever syndicate Classic winner by winning the 2000 Group 1 Kildangan Stud Irish Oaks. In 2010 Harbinger was crowned world champion following his record breaking victory in the Group 1 King George VI and Queen Elizabeth Stakes when given a rating of 135 in the World Thoroughbred Rankings.
