Our Record

"The most successful syndicate there’s been. They’ve had an insane number of winners and successes at all levels - a terrific achievement from Middleham Park. They all do a great job and really have their head in the game"

Oli Bell (after our 800 winners’ milestone in 2016).

We are the UK's winning most racehorse syndicators, with over 850 winners under both codes. Holding the current British syndicate record of most winners in a year (103), we have owned 2 European Champion Colts. Our winning record is headed by three Group 1 victories by Toormore, G Force and Ventura Storm, who also bravely came 2nd in the 2016 St Leger.

Group 1 Winners

VENTURA STORM - Zoffany colt

  • Highest OR 113
  • Prize Money £327,648
  • 2016 Group 1 Gran Premio del Jockey Club, Milan
  • 2016 Group 3 Prix De Reux, Deauville
  • 2016 Listed Glasgow Stakes, Hamilton 
  • 2016 Listed Feilden Stakes, Newmarket

Our most recent high profile horse, he was purchased at the 2015 Tattersalls Craven Breeze-up Sale for 110,000 Guineas. This was an amount we had not spent on a horse before, but when Peter & Ross Doyle and Richard Hannon all agreed he was not for passing over, Tim’s own ‘fomo’ (the fear of missing out!) kicked in and he was added to our 2015 2-year-old Hannon string.

One of the syndicate members remembers taking a call whilst on holiday in New York…”I think Tim had forgotten the time difference and when my phone rang, it was about 5am, but as I saw it was him, I knew I had to answer, as I had said I would be interested in another 2 year old! I am writing this almost 2 year's to the day and am looking at the race card from the St Leger on my wall and recalling some amazing memories from trips around Europe with him-who’d have thought! I still can’t quite believe I am a Group 1 winning owner, all with just 2.5% AND a healthy cheque to spend on new horses! He really has been an amazing horse to be involved with.”

His owners traveled with him to Ireland, France and Italy and pretty much all of them have gone into another of our 2-year olds with Richard, they loved the ride so much!

G FORCE –  Tamayuz colt

  • 2014 European Champion 3-year-old Sprinter
  • Highest OR 118
  • Prize Money £475,551
  • Prize Money £189,193
  • 2014 Group 1 Sprint Cup, Haydock 

A different profile of purchase for this Colt, as we bought him from the Richard Hannon Snr stable via the Tattersalls Horses-In-Training sale in 2013 for 25,000 Guineas. He had just had the one run and we placed him with David O’Meara, who has become our’ trainer of choice’ for horses bought out of other yards (visit his trainer page to see our current cohort). Initially being given a rating of 87, he rose up the weights after being placed in two Listed races, all at 5f. Taking in the Group 2 King George Stakes and the Group 1 Nunthorpe, he moved up to a rating of 111. Moving up to 6f, his pay day was at Haydock in the British Champions Series Betfred Sprint Cup, which earned him the ‘European Champion Sprinter’ title.

TOORMORE – Arakan colt

  • 2013 European Champion 2-year-old Colt
  • Highest OR 122
  • Prize Money £475,551
  • 2013 Group 1 Goffs National Stakes, The Curragh
  • 2013 Group 2 Veuve Clicquot Vintage Stakes, Glorious Goodwood
  • 2014 Group 3 Craven Stakes, Newmarket

Tim and Tom purchased him at the 2012 DBS (now known as Goffs) Premier Yearling sale for £36k. Under the training regime of Richard Hannon Senior, (in his last season holding the license at Herridge,) Toormore’s 2-year-old campaign could not have been better. After an unbeaten season, winning his maiden on debut, following that with the Vintage Stakes (pictured here) and his Group 1 at The Curragh, he was subsequently crowned ‘European Champion 2-year-old Colt’. He went on to pick up the Craven Stakes next time out from two more Group 1 placings, having amassed the phenomenal amount of prize money mentioned above for his syndicate, belying his purchase price.

A high-class miler, he perpetuated Middleham Park’s omnipresence at all the top-class meetings and as a result, his syndicate agreed to sell him to Godolphin, who saw him as a horse with a profile that was very appealing to their operation.

*NB. All three Group 1 winners were subsequently sold by their syndicates through our privately negotiated deals for undisclosed sums.
