About Old Gold

You can tell Mr Nicholls had us in mind when he named this one and we’re honoured,,,!

Old Gold is one of very few homebreds to have come out of the hallowed ground at Ditcheat. He’s got a real Paul Nicholls stamp on him too.

He’s by leading National Hunt sire, Blue Bresil, (who has sired an impressive 13 National Hunt Black Type Winners to date) and out of She’s Da One, a horse Harry Derham describes as having been “a really active filly that loved to work and jumped really nicely”, but who never quite realised her potential.

Old Gold has been spending most of his time with Will Biddick, who has broken him in and introduced him to the ins and outs of life as a racehorse. Will described Old Gold as being “a bit of a boy” but “a lovely, lovely horse”. Despite (or maybe because of) that zesty nature, Paul is really keen to train him. He’s watched him develop and mature very nicely over the past three years. Currently having a summer break at Sally Taylors with the view to go back to Paul Nicholls in July with the view to run around October time

Purchase a share in Old Gold if you’d like to own and follow a racehorse from the very beginning of his career (who knows how far he’ll go).

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 1250 shares and the horse wins,,, £10,000 then each share earns £8. 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 £40 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.
