FAQs

  • How much does it cost to join Old Gold Racing?
    A share in an Old Gold Racing horse usually costs £65 or £75 for the term (which is normally more than a year – the Bob Pebble syndicate term ends on 31.01.2021 for instance), depending on the welcome pack selected. For that one-off fee, owners will become a member of a syndicate and enjoy all the benefits on offer. Old Gold Racing will be rolling out premium memberships in the near future, which offer everything in our existing membership, plus some great added extras.
  • How does the cost of joining Old Gold Racing break down?

    The costs of joining Old Gold Racing include:
    a) the share price, which for Bob Pebble is £60 and,
    b) the price of the welcome pack, which is £5 for the Old Gold Standard and £15 for the Gift of Gold.

    So the price of one share with the Gift of Gold welcome pack is £75 and the price of 2 shares with a Gift of Gold welcome pack is £135.
    Similarly, the price of one share with the Old Gold Standard welcome pack is £65, and the price of 2 shares with the Old Gold Standard is £125.

    If you would like to purchase two Gift of Gold welcome packs – perhaps one for yourself and one for someone else, each with 1 share, then the total cost would be £150.

  • Can I purchase an Old Gold Racing membership as a gift?
    Yes, of course! We think Old Gold Racing memberships make great presents, and we offer ‘The Gift of Gold’ package for anyone who is thinking of purchasing a membership for a friend or loved one. The Gift of Gold comes in a beautifully designed box, along with racing goodies and a framed photo of the horse.
  • Are there any hidden costs?
    No, the fee is a flat, one-off cost for the term. The only additional costs you may incur are in terms of travel, and food and drink at stable visits.
  • Is Old Gold Racing a racing club?
    No, Old Gold Racing is a racing syndicate management business, meaning that it facilitates co-ownership of racehorses.  A racing club involves some of the perks of ownership, without its members actually owning any of the horses. Old Gold Racing does however share more characteristics with racing clubs than most of its competitors. We provide a consistent stream of high quality content including interviews with jockeys, trainers and stablehands, as well as exclusive on and off course events.
  • What is a racing syndicate?
    A racing syndicate where two or more people pool together their money to purchase shares in a single racehorse. Syndicate members also make a financial contribution to training fees, travelling costs and veterinary care. With Old Gold Racing, all these costs are covered in a single, one-off payment for the year, with no hidden charges.
  • What happens at the end of the syndicate term?
    Syndicate members will be asked to renew their membership at, or just before, the end of the term. The amount charged will be less than the original fee as it will not include the initial cost of the horse. Should less than 51% of members of the syndicate choose not to renew by the end of term date, the horse will be sent to the sales and the proceeds split up among syndicate members (less any sales fees). In the event that more than 51% choose to renew, but less than 100%, the Company agrees to find buyers of the outstanding shares at a price of its choosing.
  • Am I eligible to win a share of the prize money if my horse wins?
    Yes. Prize money will be divided equally among syndicate members, depending on the number of shares they own.
  • Do I have to pay for stable visits?
    No, stable visits are completely free to all syndicate members. The only costs you have to cover are food and travel. Members will be invited to apply in advance for visits and if oversubscribed attendance will be apportioned by ballot.
  • How do I know my horse has been entered or declared?
    You will receive an update via email and, once they’ve launched, the Old Gold Racing apps will also send you notifications.
  • How can I apply for an owners’ badge?
    On a horse being declared to run, members will be invited into a ballot for owners’ badges via email (and via the app after it is launched). We will then let you know by email whether you’ve secured your owners’ badge or are on the waiting list. Old Gold Racing will also seek discounts for entry from racecourses for syndicate members with an interest in a horse that is running that day. We will always try to secure as many owners’ badges from the racecourse as possible as well as seeking discounts.
  • Is my horse guaranteed to run?
    Unfortunately, no. Horses, like people, sometimes get ill and/or injured. Of course, everyone involved in training your horse(s) will be doing their best to ensure this doesn’t happen, but there is no guarantee. This is one of the reasons that we will be advising people that it is beneficial to purchase a share in 2 different horses rather than purchase 2 shares in 1 horse.
  • I’m not very tech-savvy – will I need to download the mobile and/or tablet app when it becomes available?

    You don’t need to have the mobile application: all of the features of the mobile application will also be available to owners by logging into their account via our website. Furthermore, we have dedicated phone and email service, so if you’d rather steer clear of technology, we’ve got you covered.

    Having said this, the mobile and tablet apps will allow you to keep up to date on your horse when you’re on the go.

    It is also worth noting that we have done our best to make the app as simple and intuitive as possible: if you can use Facebook, you’ll definitely be able to use our app.
