Embole (FR) - Dan Skelton Owners Group

2020 10 02
Dan Skelton

Embole (FR) is a six year old bay gelding (2014), in training with Dan Skelton, by Bucks Boum (FR) x Urielle Collonges (FR).  Dan has trained the horse since he was three.  He won a novice hurdle race at Wincanton very impressively in February 2018 and subsequently ran in the Fred Winter at the Cheltenham Festival.  He didn't trouble the judge there, but was third in a handicap hurdle on his next appearance at Ayr and in November 2018 he finished second in a beginners chase.  His form in 2019 was nothing to shout about, but Dan said he was aimed very high and lost his confidence a bit then he picked up a little injury on his last run - nothing serious, but they gave him a break in September 2019, and he was set to run earlier this year when the lockdown happened.  Dan is confident that the horse is on a nice handicap mark to give his owners group a lot of fun.

The lease for this group will start on 1st November 2020 and will end on 31st October 2021, giving you a full year of excitement, with the option to renew your share after the first year if the Club wishes to lease Embole for a further year. Shares are priced at a one-off cost of £330, covering the training and racing expenses for the full season with nothing else to pay. This group is limited to a maximum of 150 shares and will go ahead from the 1st November providing the minimum number of shares are sold. 

Racegoers Club has had over 50 years experience in giving members the thrill of thoroughbred racehorse ownership. By leasing our horses, we are able to offer the racehorse ownership experience at a fraction of the cost, and by capping the number of shares available to 150, members of the owners group have a better chance of getting owners badges in the ballot when the horse runs than they would in the larger owners groups. 

Benefits of joining this owners group includes:

  • Owners badges when your horse races (allocated by ballot)
  • All costs covered for 12 months with nothing else to pay
  • A share of any surplus winnings at the end of the owners group
  • Meet the trainer and watch your horse out on the gallops with up to three private owners group stable visits (when Covid19 restrictions allow)
  • Regular training updates
