“Middleham Park Racing is the winning most syndicate in the country and it is an absolute pleasure to be able to train for them. We have been very fortunate over the years to have had some fantastic Group race winning horses together; including Toormore, Kool Kompany, Raymond Tusk, Shouldvebeenaring and our Group One winner, Ventura Storm. Overall the whole experience is top notch, both on and off the racecourse, with regular stable visits with us and some fantastic days out racing.”
"What Middleham Park Racing offer is the chance for people to get into ownership, who may otherwise not be able to and their results speak for themselves."
Horse racing is often referred to as the ‘Sport of Kings’, with wealthy owners dominating the fields worldwide and spending millions on their bloodstock empires. If you are an avid flat racing fan, you’ll be familiar with names such as Al Shaqab, Coolmore, Godolphin, Juddmonte, Qatar Racing to name but a few of the top owning enterprises. Our colours regularly line up alongside such colossal opposition, taking the spoils on many an occasion.
"Being in the paddock wearing your owners badge at top class meetings is so thrilling!"
Tim Palin, our founder and Director of Racing, says: "We have in no way rested on our 1,500 or so, winners’ laurels in the past couple of years. We’ve continued to source the very best Flat and National Hunt stock available and our horses have continued to thrive on the track. In 2023, we sought to raise the bar by increasing our purchasing budgets and racing at an even higher level. With 21 horses achieving black type and producing our highest ever prize money earnings, our owners got to win here and abroad at Group/Graded level.
We pride ourselves on making available a wide range of share options - we are no 'one trick pony!' Flat, National Hunt, 2 year-olds and good, consistent older handicap horses to give plenty of opportunities for owners to go racing. Furthermore, we’ve a fabulous team of ultra-hard-working staff, demonstrating the sort of stability that you’d like to see in any business, so our owners always know there is always someone on hand to help. The aim of all the team, is to maximise the enjoyment and make the MPR experience, as best as is practicable for our syndicate members.
Every winner is celebrated at MPR HQ, as if it’s the most important thing in the World and it is for any owner in a racehorse - winning is the name of the game! We’re unique at MPR, having achieved over 1500 winners and having started from nothing in 1995, with zero contacts and zero experience in running a syndicate company, through to becoming the UK’s most successful racing syndicate in the history of thoroughbred racing. For this, a heartfelt debt of gratitude goes out to all our owners, past and present, our horses, trainers and stable staff that have enabled this to come to pass, along with our fabulous and 100% devoted staff, who’s dedication and application in pursuit of excellence, afford our owners, the very best experience possible with MPR.
Are you an owner with us for 2024?
Our team do extensive catalogue research, inspections, vetting and consultation with our bloodstock agents & trainers, when buying our horses, whether that be as yearlings, as 2 year old 'breezers' or at the HIT (Horses-in-Training) sales.
Tim explains: "No stone went unturned to ensure that the new juveniles that we purchased at the yearling sales will represent their owners with distinction on the racecourse in 2024 and we will stuck to our principles - only buying when we think there's value. That doesn't just mean cheap; Camelot was 525,000gns and our own Lily's Angel (The Lily Agnes and Listed Empress Stakes winner) was £8,000, but, crucially, both represented value."
