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. Those nine outings netted one second place and four victories, including in the group two Mill Reef Stakes and the group one Middle Park Stakes. Retiring after that solitary season as a racer, Dark Angel then reached legendary status as a sire. It is as […]
Aqlaam Stallion Profile As sire of the Crowd Racing horse The Detainee, the story of stallion Aqlaam is well worth knowing. Trained by leading trainer William Haggas, Aqlaam was a progressive miler who placed on his only 2yr old start. Quickly progressing on to bigger and better things in his 3yr old year. Eight subsequent race outings delivered no fewer than four victories, with most of these coming in valuable and prestigious contests. Amongst Aqlaam’s most impressive wins were the Group Three Jersey Stakes at Royal Ascot, the Group Two Summer Mile Stakes at the same course and a […]
Neymar /Neigh-Mar: What Would £200 Million Get You in the World of Racing? Like most sports fans who appreciate the value of money and possess a modicum of common sense, Crowd Racing was absolutely stunned to read about this week’s £200 million transfer of footballer Neymar from Barcelona to PSG. After our initial shock, however, we got to thinking about just what £200 million might have got the architects of the transfer if they’d chosen to invest it in racing instead. Given that PSG’s financiers are from Qatar, too, it’s hardly beyond the realms of possibility. You […]
There have a number of questions raised in recent weeks off the back of some of the changes which are ongoing with Crowd Racing, HFR and some of the horses. I have pulled together the most common questions, along with answers in this post. If you have any further questions, please let me know.
There will be more than just 9 Reasons to Own a Racehorse, the list is possibly endless but we wanted to focus on the 9 reasons that were most important to our owners. Crowd Racing has over 300 active owners involved in our racehorses, and we asked them why they got involved. We have taken the top 9 reasons to Own a Racehorse and will dig into them a little here. Share of Prize Money It is never recommended that anyone gets involved in racehorse ownership just for the benefit of winning prize-money. Not many horses pay their […]
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. Kempton Park are not the most helpful with Owners and Trainers Badges, but with a combination of our standard allocation, a few “paid for” O & T Badges, and some owners having other routes to the O & T […]

See the horses, meet the team, socialise with the Crowd Racing crowd! This Saturday, 26th November, our friends at Horses First Racing will be opening the doors to their wonderful stables at Danebury. Trainer Jeremy Gask and his wife Kerrie will be hosting the Open Day with assistance from Eamonn Wilmott. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to attend but the team are more than capable of looking after everyone and know significantly more than I ever will about the horses. There will be some questions that may have been saved for the Open Day that will need to be bounced […]
The latest addition to the Crowd Racing string, the wonderful Flying Bear heads to Lingfield Park on Saturday for the 345 race under David Parkes. He has a nice draw in 3, over the rapid 5f and he goes well on the track, plus there will be plenty of pace in the race with two committed trailblazers queued to slug it out up front. “The Bear” is a lovely racehorse, and is a consistent battle hardened sprinter. We are sure all his owners will have great fun following him for the next twelve months and with ownership costs ranging from £100 […]
