A Membership Pack comprising Racing Club metal badge, membership certificate, copy of the club rules, pedigrees and photos of the horses is supplied to each member upon joining.


Prize money won by the club’s racehorses is distributed firstly between Syndicate members at the end of the financial year, with a proportion allocated to club Members as a dividend. Club members are not owners of the horse(s) unless a full Ownership Share is purchased, in which case there is an entitlement to a share of the prize money and proceeds of the eventual sale of the horse(s). Any club Member wishing to purchase a full Ownership Share of the horse(s) can do so by paying the appropriate share price of the horse(s), details of which are shown on the Ownership Shares page.


Contact with Members


Members will find updates on the Club website page “News & Results” at regular intervals giving information about the progress of the horses and racing plans etc. together with details of social events on the “Events & Hospitality” page.


Badges for entry to racecourses when our horses race are provided at a discounted price to club Members when appropriate. There may be occasionally a free badge allocation to club Members. Syndicate Members always receive free admission to racecourses when their horse(s) race.


If any further information is required please contact Membership Secretary Jackie Chapman on 01638 454881 or email
