About Darling Maltaix

It was clear to champion trainer Paul Nicholls and us that he simply needed to cut out the mistakes to win.,,,

In a brilliant tactical change at Stratford on September 5th Harry Cobden tried it from the front.

Not only did Darling hold on to defeat the short priced favourite but he did it in course record time.

It was, naturally, his most impressive performance to date.

This was followed shortly afterwards with a 53-length winning margin at Ludlow (albeit with a depleted field).

Back in 2018 at Ascot over three miles Lorcan Williams held him up last in a field of 14. Darling switched off perfectly before cruising to the front when it mattered on the bridle and pulling away for a comfortable win.,,,

There is still so much to come.

Harry and Paul have his number and Darling is destined for better things.

Next race is later this month and will be exciting to watch.

Especially if you own a share.

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 organizing 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.
