Crowd Racing has a limited number of shares available in our 5yr old gelding The Detainee, trained by Neil Mulholland.
The Detainee is a winner of three races, one at Chepstow, then at Yarmouth and most recently at Windsor.
All of the shares available on Crowd Racing are sold on a one-off cost basis, with nothing extra to pay. Guaranteed.
The cost of the shares covers all expenses, including the purchase of the share, training fees and vet costs.
The Detainee is a lightly-raced five-year-old who has only had twenty-one races to date, winning three and earning eight place finishes. He is a big, strong racehorse, and has taken some time to grow into himself and mature but is now thriving and his confidence is growing.
By Aqlaam out of a Jakarta Jade (x Royal Ajbar) The Detainee has only had a handful of runs over hurdles since the move to Neil Mulholland and he is now back from a short holiday before coming back prepared for a busy and strong hurdling campaign. Both of his runs so far were full of promise and indicate that TD will be a much better horse over hurdles, with some very exciting races in mind for 2018.
His final run on 2017, at Fontwell saw The Detainee register a RPR (Racing Post Rating) of 114, in a performance that the Racing Post classed as "promising".
Neil also believes The Detainee is still very well handicapped for the flat, he has a lowly rating but there is plenty of his form that indicates he is better than that even without the expected improvement but as he steps in further in distance, we expect to see more decent performances.
Shares in The Detainee are superb value, and perfect for anyone interested in getting involved in racehorse ownership. He is a beautiful racehorse, and has a great future ahead of him.
The Detainee is trained by Neil Mulholland at Conkwell Grange Racing Stables near Bath.
Born in 1980 Neil was brought up surrounded by a family that loved horses. His father Brian always had a horse in training and he loved to breed with his own mares to try and find that big race winner we are all looking for. Neil had a pony from my first memories, it was in his blood. At the age of 11 years old Neil started to ride out for Ian Duncan who was my local trainer based just a couple of miles away and at the age of 12 years old he wrote a secret letter to Aidan O’Brien who at the time was champion jumps trainer to ask him for some work experience. To his surprise, Aidan replied and Neil spent 6 years in total with him, the first 3 years part time when he was at school, the last 3 years full time to on his apprenticeship. Neil enjoyed every minute at Aidan’s and learned so much and it was there that he started his riding career and went on to ride about 120 winners, riding for a lot of great trainers on a lot of nice horses.
Neil was a journeyman jockey so had to work hard and ride for as many trainers as possible meaning he got to see a lot of different ways people train. In 2008 he took out his first trainer’s licence, with a brilliant first season, training 17 winners. In the past 5 years, Neil has gone from strength to strength with almost 300 winners over jumps and over 50 winners on the flat.
There have also been a combined 400+ placed horses and almost £2,500,000 in prize-money. A phenomenal return in such a short period of time and Neil is undoubtedly on the fastest rising stars in the UK training. Stable stars such as Carole's Destrier, Pilgrims Bay, Shantou Village, Druids Nephew and Southfield Royale all grace the yard and will be the cornerstones of what promises to be another great season for the Mulholland team.
We are very excited to have The Detainee in amongst this company!
