Sole Ownership

As a sole owner of a horse, you will receive all the winnings your horse earns in races (after deduction of trainer's and jockey's commissions) and be responsible for all costs of the horse's upkeep and training.


Owners can alternatively register to form partnerships made up of 2 to 10 partners in any single partnership. All prize money earned (after deduction of trainer's and jockey's commissions) will be paid to the manager who will then be responsible for paying the partners in the stable. Partners will need to nominate a Manager to represent the partnership. The Manager will be responsible for managing the affairs of the partnership.

Easy Identification

One of the many joys of a horse owner is to proudly see his or her own racing colours being carried on the track! The colours are worn as the jockeys' silks and caps for easy identification during a race. You need to register at least one set of racing colours to represent you or your partnership. As you may have more than one horse in a race, you can register more than one set of racing colours. Your racing colours are unique and cannot be used by any other person.

All registrations are done through the Malayan Racing Association (MRA)
