Become an Owner with DGA RACING
There’s no better way to enjoy the thrills and excitement of racing than having your own horse, so come and experience the full fun of the sport by joining DGA Racing.
You can pick a name for the horse you buy, choose your own personal racing colours, and visit the yard and gallops to see your horse in training.
And when it comes to race day, you’ll receive your complimentary owner’s badges to enter the course where you can take your place in the parade ring to discuss tactics with trainer and jockey, and enjoy the Owners and Trainers facilities.
There are different types of ownership to consider, each with distinct advantages, so click on the buttons below to learn more.
As a sole owner at DGA Racing, you will be the only owner, which means you are responsible for the purchase price, training costs and racing fees. But of course, that also means you get to enjoy all of the owner’s share of any prize-money your horse may win!
At DGA Racing, we take great pride in giving our owners the very best of personal care and attention, which begins with help if needed in buying a horse at the sales or elsewhere. Once in training, we are always available to discuss with you how your horse is progressing and recommend how to develop your horse.
As a sole owner you are also able to design and register your very own racing silks, and have the fun of selecting a name for your horse if buying a yearling. You can visit the yard and watch your horse at exercise on the gallops.
But the biggest thrill of all is that sense of excitement which comes with having a runner at the races.

Horse Racing Partnerships
A great way to enjoy the fun of owning a horse while sharing the cost is through a racing partnership, in which up to 16 people can be members. It has become an increasingly popular way for groups of friends to get involved.
For the 2022, we have launched the THOROUGHBRED PARTNERSHIPS.
One key feature of our partnerships is that they are all underwritten by DGA Racing. Partners will never be asked to pay more than the sum which they have agreed to pay at the outset.
Corporate horse ownership
Corporate ownership can be a powerful promotional tool, with companies able to give their name to their horse – a fantastic advertisement for the firm.
Most companies find their ownership proves a boost to staff morale and many entertain clients by taking them for a day at the races when their horse is running to enjoy the fine corporate hospitality packages most racecourses now offer. It is an ideal way to promote the name of your company and build your brand through wider public exposure. And of course the jockey can wear your corporate colours when riding.
Remember too that if the racehorse is owned by your company, all VAT on purchase and training fees is reclaimable. To learn more about corporate ownership and the role DGA Racing can provide for you
