Get behind the scenes at the races by being an owner
12 June 2017, USA ~There’s a new game in town – Goldensands Racing.
Racing partnerships or syndicates are not new to horse racing. In fact, they are one of the oldest methods of taking part in the Sport of Kings. There is much to be said about the excitement of horse racing, being intricately involved, and owning the crowd as you proudly walk your horse to the winners’ circle.
Thoroughbred racing has fostered many successful syndicates and the US is known for many Arabian racing partnerships. There is no question that a number of people joining together have more monetary power than one individual, and having a winning horse is just as exciting whether the horse be Thoroughbred or Arabian. And, just as in any investment, there are some things to watch for when joining a partnership:
1. The experience of the racing manager.
Goldensands Racing Manager, Amanda Roxborough has over three decades of racing experience in both Thoroughbred and Arabian racing as a jockey, trainer and Racing Manager. Roxborough explains the syndicate: “I am committed to creating an experience of a lifetime and providing you with top class management with racing education, communication and a chance to be a part of an elite group at our social functions planned to entertain and enlighten all our members.”
2. The experience of the trainer.
The horses are being trained at Delaware Park by Aldana Gonzalez: “Gonzales is an experienced horse person who has had success and wins races. Her statistics for the 2016 Delaware meet were impressive: 106 starts, 10 wins, 19 seconds, 20 thirds with a total purse earnings of $206,022.00,” said Roxbourough.
3. The racing pedigrees of the horses.
Madgicall: 5-year-old filly (Madjani x Tu For All x Tron Ku Tu) – a winner at Delaware in 2016. Madjani is a 2x Darley winner and 3x Kahayla Classic winner.
BelFast: 4-yr-old gelding (Nivour De Cardonne X Bella Atheena). Bella Atheena is half sister to Royal Atheena, 5 time Darley winner.
Pacific Winds: 3 yr-old filly (Dahess x A Second Wind). Dahess has and is a leading sire in Europe and the Middle East. A Second Wind is a Stakes winning mare that raced under the colors of Strawberry Banks.
4. Costs and rewards.
All syndicate members enjoy an all-access pass with your own owner’s license giving each member the privilege of visiting the barns, watching the horses in morning training, meeting the jockeys, being ringside in the saddling paddock before the race, watching races from the owner’s box, and having your photo taken in the Winner’s Circle. As a member of Goldensands Racing, you will meet other like-minded associated that share in the excitement of Arabian horse racing.
Roxborough gives details: “Our unique syndicate is a three (3) Arabian racehorse Lease package with the express intention to race for the full calendar year of 2017. There is a grand total of 20 full shares (100% interest) in this lease offering and you will in no way own the horses within this agreement. It is ownership without the high costs of purchasing the horses. The monthly fee of $400 covers all three horses training and management fees. Owning a share of three horses provides you with more chances to watch your horses on the track and win races.”
Roxborough continued: “To all thoroughbred horse racing fans and owners: I welcome you to mix it up and consider getting involved, supporting and following Arabian horse racing here in the US. Our horses are stabled at Delaware Park, the premier track for Arabian racing, with daily races offered to Arabians with respectable purses. For several years Grade 1 $100,000 races have been held at Churchill Downs, Keeneland and Santa Anita race tracks for Arabians. The races are well received and extremely popular with the thoroughbred crowds and they have gained respect as top class racing and competitors in the racing community. The path into Arabian horse racing with Goldensands Racing is professional, easy and affordable. Get involved with the original racehorse!”
