Purchasing A Horse
Purchasing a horse is one of the most important steps in becoming a successful owner. To do it alone without experience is not advisable. For those with experience, buying a horse could easily be the most exciting aspect of ownership as you try to pick a champion from thousands of horses available to you. Otherwise, engage a locally based trainer or a bloodstock agent to select a horse that suits your needs and budget.
International sales companies
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.
