We bought Lexington Law as a yearling and had him in training with Richard Hannon in his 2 and 3-year-old career. He's a strapping, loose moving son of Lawman, whose dam is by Galileo and she herself won two National Hunt Flat races from just two starts in her racing career. Rated 82 from the Flat, he was gelded and then moved to Alan King's Barbury Castle.
Alan excels with the limited number of Flat runners he has and Lexington Law is in the form of his life, posting a career best performance at Kempton on 12th December 2018. His ultimate target will now be the £85,000 1m 4f Handicap at Newcastle on Good Friday 2019, but he’ll continue to ply his trade at all the AW venues this Winter and will provide his lucky owners and lease-holders with some fabulous action.
He had a productive 2018, having won 3 races on the flat, rising to a career high mark of 93. He seems to thrive on the AW and we'll keep him busy over the Winter and into the spring. Watch his latest win here: https://www.thejockeyclub.co.uk/the-racing/race-replays/2018/12/12/kempton/#32red_handicap. In the winners' enclosure for 15 of his 23 career runs, he has been a fabulous horse for his syndicate.
Here's what lessees of a horse benefit from:
- full race day complimentary owners’ badge entitlement-one badge with a 2.5% lease
- receipt of all prize money earned (commensurate with percentage shareholding)
- full owners’ updates from the syndicate manager
- full access to our newsletters and offers
- full entitlements to stable visits and events
The main difference when taking out a lease rather than buying a share, is that when the horse is sold, only full shareholders are entitled to a return (commensurate with the % owned in the horse). Full shareholders are also entitled to race winning trophies and prizes.
Syndicate manager update: We are targetting an £85k race at Newcastle on Good Friday and a prior £50k 1m 3f race at Kempton on March 30th. With the right sort of race fractions, he is certainly more than capable of taking a race of this type!
