As Crowd Racing horse Born To Finish’s name suggests, he truly does have a pedigree par excellence, as is ably revealed by the story of his sire Dark Angel. An elegant grey, Dark Angel was a top class sprinter in his day. Excelling in a nine race campaign as a two year old.

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a winning racehorse owner and get involved in Post Race Celebrations? Crowd Racing had a good crowd of our owners at Kempton to see BORN TO FINISH grab his third win in his last three races. The link below will give you a small flavour of what was like! https://www.periscope.tv/w/1yNxadklldVJj We still have a few shares left in Born To Finish, it is not too late to get involved!
Born To Finish stormed to victory at Kempton Park under David Parkes, and in amongst the crowd of delighted owners was ex-footballer and now TV personality Ian Wright. As a part-owner of BTF, Ian was buzzing to see the horse achieve his hat-trick as you can see from the interview he did with fellow part-owner Oli Bell on The Racing Channel.
