The Gold Cup at Royal Ascot. Love the race, and to have the winner in Crowd Racing colours would be phenomenal!
I am not that picky though, a Brigadier Gerard, an Eclipse or a Northumberland Plate would all be superb.
I have been fortunate enough to visit the majority of UK racecourses, and I have a short list of Ascot, Goodwood, Cheltenham, Sandown, York and Thirsk but Windsor is my favourite.
The whole ambience of a Monday night at Windsor, from taking boat up the Thames and into a beautiful racecourse, has made Windsor a firm favourite of mine.
That racing doesn’t seem to be able to be seen by those outside of the sport as nothing but a bi-product of the betting industry. It is important, but horse racing isn’t defined by gambling.
The recent increase in prize money is good, but not yet enough. I think the most positive change has been the move to ITV of what was Channel4 Racing. There is undoubtedly a wider audience, and a more diverse audience and I think the new fresh approach is excellent.
Those 2 words, prize money again. It is very difficult to make owning a racehorse work as prize money is too low. This does need looked at, and some solution found.
Tough question, but I think I would send Oaks winner Taghrooda to Frankel. For any mare to be rated as highly as she was by connections is more than good enough for me, and surely she would have won the Arc with a better draw?

Crowd Racing is one of the UK’s most innovative Racehorse Ownership and Experience companies.
We offer ownership shares in racehorses and racehorse ownership experiences in the UK and Europe, via our "Crowds". By joining a Crowd, you will become a registered owner of that racehorse for a fixed period of time, for a fixed cost. At the end of the period, you will get to vote on whether we keep the horse(s) but will never be committed to remaining as part of that Crowd irrespective of the vote result.
Crowd Racing offers various ownership packages on a transparent, one-off cost basis with no hidden charges.
Depending on the level of package purchased, share owners received a variety of racehorse owner benefits; All owners are entitled to their pro-rata share of prize-money and re-sale of the horse at the end of the defined period.
We also offer a totally free to join Racing Club, The Crowd Racing Club.
Crowd Racing exists to make racehorse ownership accessible, informative, exhilarating, social and above all;
A whole lot of fun!
We have well over 300 owners involved in Crowd Racing, and many of them are involved in multiple horses. Our customers retention levels are above 90%, so we know we are doing a lot right, but we are constantly looking to improve.
We embrace new technology to find better and more innovative ways to communicate and deliver better for our owners, and we thrive on listening to the feedback of those that matter the most;
Our Customers - Our Owners. The Crowd.
While we will always strive to buy racehorses for our owners which will win races and increase in value, the costs involved in training and running a racehorse plus the relatively low levels of prize money in the UK, make showing an upside on the initial investment made by owners very difficult and somewhat rare.
Shares bought in horses via Crowd Racing, should always be viewed as a social investment with no expectation of any financial upside. We can guarantee you will love being involved and have some wonderful experiences but we cannot guarantee you will make money.
