WOODLANDS RACING SYNDICATES

Our Woodlands Partnership Syndicates have proved to be very successful with members having enjoyed multiple successes on both sides of the Tasman over the years.  

The intention of our syndicates is to give affordable access to racing with a focus on trying to get new people involved in the industry, and we have a whole lot of fun along the way! 

How it works;

  • The syndicate horses are leased from the Stud and/or outside parties and members enjoy a 3 - 4 year racing lease on each of the horses.
  • Each syndicate has six - eight horses on the books
  • Members make a monthly payment of $300 to cover the cost of those horses.
  • The horses are trained by the best trainers New Zealand has to offer. These include Barry Purdon, Tony Herlihy, John and Joshua Dickie, Cran Dalgety, Ken & Tony Barron, Steve Telfar & Chris Garlick, Ray Green and Phil Wiliamson.

Some of the horses currently included in the Woodlands Partnership Syndicates are;

  • Speeding Spur 5 x Group1's & $690,000 in stakes to date
  • Spirit of Delight nearly $10,000 in stakes set to resume racing in premier company
  • Monet Grace race winner - infoal due to be retired to stud
