You are about to enjoy the 'Sport of Kings' as a Racehorse owner, joining the ranks of Arab Sheikhs and The Queen. Your 'Racehorse Ownership' - experience is made up of two parts, beginning with an informative close encounter of your Racehorse being trained, where you will meet the Racehorse Ownership Manager and see your horse work on the training track in the fresh early morning mist.
You will then enjoy lunch and discuss the racing plans for part two of your racehorse ownership experience.
Part two will be a day at the races where we can promise the adrenaline will be racing as fast around your body as your horse will be around the course. With a bit of luck you will end up in the winner's enclosure.

Racehorse Ownership for One: Reviews
We attended Salisbury Racecourse last Sunday.
We thought you would like to know that we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. In particular, we were very grateful for the assistance and information provided by John and his team.
We hope we meet up with them again on a future occasion.

I had a great time at the stables . John provided me fascinating information from the inside, talking about what it requires to be an Owner. And the Day at the Races was brilliant! Everything so well-organised.
Thanks very much!

I had a great time visiting the stables and watching my horse racing on the track. Owning a racehorse was a great experience.
