Q8 - Instead of paying monthly, can I make a one off payment?
Q8 - Yes you can, 3 monthly, 6 monthly or annually are all accepted.
Q9 - Will I get an owners badge when my horse runs at the races?
Q9 - Our aim is for everyone to see their horse at the races. If more owners want to attend than available badges, then a ballot system will be used to allocate badges. We will aim to get as many badges as possible from each racecourse.
Q10 - What is the difference between a full ownership and leasing share?
Q10 - A full ownership share means that you actually own the percentage purchased. If/when the horse is sold, you will receive your percentage of the sales proceedings. A leased share will entitle you to all of the benefits of a full ownership share, except you will not be entitled to any of the sales proceedings if/when sold.
