To get involved in racehorse ownership there are numerous options to choose from at Woodway Farm. You may wish to own a racehorse outright or start out owning or leasing a share of a horse. Whichever you have in mind, you are extremely welcome to view our yard and discuss your requirements and budget. We hope you will be keen to become part of our great team…enjoying the social side of racing and, of course, owning winners!
We will give you friendly, helpful advice on all racehorse ownership admin procedures. We often have horses for sale and always have shares available in horses already at the yard. Owners are also welcome to come with us to the sales if they want to get involved in purchasing a horse of their own. Using top bloodstock agents including Anthony Bromley and Tom Malone, we will assist you in the exciting process of acquiring a new horse. As a new owner you will be able to design the colour and style of your racing silks as well as choosing the horse’s name if it is unraced.
Whether you are an experienced owner, or new to racing, please contact us for more information.
