Want To Buy a Racehorse
There are a number of ways you can get involved in this exciting sport.
Outright Purchase of a Racehorse
You can buy a horse outright – 100% of the costs but you receive 100% of the prize money.
If you take this path it is best you find a trainer you are comfortable with and allow them to assist you to buy a horse at the annual yearling sales or by private negotiation. The other option is to go through one of WA’s professional bloodstock agents.
Only deal with professionals in the Industry to ensure your purchase has its best chance to get to the race track.
A number of leading trainers are members of WAROA.
Purchasing a Share in a Racehorse
To keep the costs down, many owners buy a share of a horse. You can form a syndicate of friends to buy a horse to race together.
Alternatively, you can contact a WAROA trainer direct or one of RWWA’s licenced syndicators, who normally have shares for sale of various sizes.
A number of licensed syndicators are WAROA members.
Thoroughbred Breeders WA (TBWA) can give you an approximate costing guide to race your thoroughbred.
Note: the amounts quoted are a guide only, and may vary up or down depending on the supplier.
