Racing TV launches members ownership syndicate with RaceShare 

Racing TV has formed an exclusive syndicate with RaceShare to offer its subscribers “a chance to enjoy the thrills of racehorse ownership – with no additional costs.”

RaceShare was founded in 2022 by former Racing Post executive Lucy Delaney and bloodstock experts, to make racehorse ownership more engaging and affordable with the general public via shared syndicates.

Teaming up with Racing TV, RaceShare will provide audiences the opportunity to join the syndicate of raising stud Lir Speciale.

Audiences of Racing TV were informed: “The five-year-old horse was bought for 50,000 guineas (£52,500) at the Tattersalls Horses in Training Sale in October and will be trained by Stuart Williams in Newmarket.

“The son of Prince of Lir has a BHA rating of 92 (103 with Timeform) and is the joint-highest rating for any horse RaceShare has purchased at the sales.”

Ellie Welton, Head of Partnerships at Racing TV, said: “This initiative is another fantastic benefit of the Racing TV membership. It’s a great opportunity to get closer to the sport, whether this is by watching Lir Speciale’s progress at Stuart Williams’ Newmarket base or by enjoying the ownership experience on a raceday.

“It should be a lot of fun, and we look forward to sharing the thrill of ownership with as many of our loyal members as possible.”

Racing TV announced the launch of its exclusive syndicate, offering its audiences a chance to opt in on the ownership of Lir Speciale, at no additional cost to their membership fee.

RaceShare’s investment is led by champion owner and mathematician Patrick Veitch, renowned for identifying undervalued bloodstock, including his purchase of Manuela De Vega, Antonia De Vega, and Feliciana De Vega at the 2017 yearling sales – all multiple winners at Group and Listed levels.

Lucy Delaney, Managing Director of RaceShare, said: “RaceShare is delighted to be partnering with Racing TV on their first members’ syndicate horse. Hopes are high that Lir Speciale, and his trainer Stuart Williams, will take members on an exciting ownership journey in 2024 and beyond.

“As Racing TV members will be the actual owners of the horse, it’s an incredible concept that enables RaceShare and Racing TV to unlock the ownership experience for a large number of people with a love of the sport. 

“We eagerly look forward to working with Racing TV to share an engaging and informative story about Lir Speciale and his career as a racehorse.”
