About Bob Pebble

He was sired by Big Bad Bob, who drew the attention of astute breeders when his first crops turned out a high ratio of winners to runners, including the Group 3 winners Berg Bahn (Ire) and Bible Belt (Ire), and listed winner Bob Le Beau (Ire), as well as Brendan Brackan, who has proven to be an excellent servant (life time earnings £369,593) for,,, Ger Lyons over the last 7 years, indicating the soundness of his stock. Bob Pebble’s dam is Pebble in a Pool.

Since moving to Paul Nicholls’ yard, Bob Pebble has shown a natural and impressive jumping ability, as well as a bit of an attitude!

Bob Pebble ran his first race at Ballinrobe in September 2019, coming in second behind a more experienced horse, and ahead of the odds on favourite. What that race suggested was that he’s got a really good gallop in him, a really decent stride and most of all, he tried his heart out!

In his second race, in July 2020, Bob lead the field at Newton Abbot, but couldn’t quite stay the distance and ended up placing a very respectable third.

The plan for Bob Pebble is to turn him into a lovely novice hurdler for next season.

The syndicate term finishes 30.04.2021 and at the end of the term owners will be given priority to renew their ownership for another term should they choose. Let’s hope Bob makes it a no-brainer!

We are making 1750 shares available in Bob Pebble. Each share is £60, including all training, vets and travel costs, and welcome packs cost £5 for the Old Gold Standard and £15 for the Gift of Gold.














The Benefits of JoiningOld Gold Racing

A share of prize money

100% of prize money won by a horse is shared between owners. If there are 1500 shares and the horse wins,,, £10,000 then each share earns £6.67. Prize money is distributed to owners at the end of the syndicate term.

Nothing extra to pay

The £60 cost of a share includes everything. You will not be asked for any further payment. At the end,,,
the term owners are given the option to renew. Renewals cost an estimated £35 and the amount is smaller than the original payment because the latter included a proportion of the purchase price of the horse, an expense only payable once.

Weekly updates

All owners receive an email every Saturday afternoon. This includes a report, usually filmed, from the,,,
trainer and stable staff. and all relevant news and anecdotes. The content, which includes free tips and articles, is exclusive to owners.
We also send one-off emails whenever there is something to say – a declaration, for example, or an injury update.
On the morning of a race we dispatch expert analysis of the contest, a realistic assessment of our horse’s chance, plus comments on betting trends and a breakdown of other races on the card.

Access to our community

Old Gold Racing has a growing community of owners, currently housed in our Facebook Groups,,,
Here, owners discuss and share content about their horses. There’s a great atmosphere and a real sense of team spirit.

Stable visits & Raceday Experiences

Old Gold Racing aims to arrange one stable visit per syndicate term. The names of Interested owners,,, are placed in a hat and the winners drawn at random. Approximately 200 tickets per visit are available. Each time one of our horses runs six (or sometimes more) of our customers can enjoy the full or ‘sole’ owner’s experience, with free entrance, exclusive access to spacious bars and restaurant facilities, the paddock and, if the horse is placed, the winner’s enclosure.
The lucky few will be selected by ballot. The more shares you own the better your chance.

Deals and Old Gold Racing events

From time to time Old Gold Racing will agree discounts on various racing-related goods and services,,, and these will be advertised to you by email.
We will also be organising events as soon as it is possible to do so. Owners are invited to purchase tickets so they can meet other members of the syndicate, as well as the Old Gold Racing team.
