Horses

We go into 2018 with a reduced team of horses, but with plenty of Quality. Every horse is either a proven winner, or has shown enough decent form to suggest they aren't far away from winning. We have 4 horses in training with Ruth Carr, a trainer that saw her go to the next level in 2017, when winning Group races, as well as bettering her previous total of winners. Those horses are Abushamah, Cosmic Chatter, Foxtrot Knight & our new aquisition to the team, a lovely grey gelding called Katheefa. All 4 have winning form & start their 2018 campaigns on very well handicapped marks. Toboggan's Fire has also proven already this year that she become a proven dual purpose horse, having won on her hurdles debut at Musselburgh in January. Donald McCain her trainer feels that when her hurdling improves, there will be even more to come from her. The only horse not to have won yet is the Micky Hammond trained Tickanrun, but he showed with his great 2nd at Wetherby's Christmas Festival. That 2nd was his first after a break of 601 days, so it shouldn't be long before he is visiting first spot in the winners enclosure. Completing the team is the Rebecca Bastiman trained Foxy Boy. Our ambition has always been, not only to give our owners the best quality service, but also to make racehorse ownership available to everyone. Foxy is our first horse in our newly formed Racing Club & for as little as a one off payment of only £125, you can get involved in racehorse ownership for a 6 month period. Unlike most racing clubs, this horse is a 4 times winner & races of a very decent mark of 69, so will run in some nice northern sprint handicaps.

As the year progresses we intend to build the team up with a couple of aquisitions. One of which will be another horse for the GPR Racing Club & a nice horse to replace the fantastic Avon Breeze, which will not be easy to do!!

If there is a horse that you would like to get involved with, please get in touch & we will organise a stable visit. If you are interested please phone Alan on 07506479522 or email on adcrombie@hotmail.co.uk asap. Details can be found on the contact page.

Abushamah Redcar, Friday 22rd June

Foxy Boy & Tadaany Wetherby, Friday 22nd June.

Cosmic Chatter Pontefract, Sunday 24th June.

Foxy Boy Beverley, Tuesday 26th June.

What our members say

"I have been with Grange Park Racing as an owner since the end of 2013 and can definitely recommend them to anyone interested in affordable syndicate ownership. 

Alan has a superb racing knowledge and keeps everyone informed of their horse's progress; when entries are made and declarations confirmed.  When you go to the races you are made welcome and to really feel part of a team with the other owners.  Alan is always there to introduce everyone to the trainer and jockey.

The day after a race he sends a comprehensive report with trainer's and jockey's comments and future plans.  Horses are based with trainers covering a wide area from North Nottinghamshire to North Yorkshire making stable visits accessible to many”.

Owner - Peter Sweeting

Grange Park Racing joined our yard in 2011.  I have enjoyed meeting lots of different people who are genuinely very caring about the horses, some even get a little bit attached.   Everyone involved just love a day out at the races enjoying the prestige of being an owner.  The syndicate is well run and Alan makes everybody very welcome.  I am always happy to recommend  GPR to new owners.

Trainer - Karen Tutty

For anyone like me, who has been involved in horse racing for years, and who knows just he wants from an ownership syndicate, GPR ticks all the boxes. A good spread of capable horses, all with talented and easily approachable trainers; really good value for money; lots of days at the races, supplemented by stable visits and social gatherings; and a racing manager in Alan Crombie who effortlessly combines meticulous professionalism with personal warmth and affability, and who seems to have an in-depth knowledge of all his horses and owners. For anyone contemplating ownership for the first time, I can think of no better place to start than with GPR, for all the above reasons.

Owner - Terry Reilly

“I can highly recommend Grange Park Racing as a syndicate to get involved in.  Alan is a positive but realistic and is straight forward to deal with.  He keeps his owners very well informed of their horses wellbeing, entries, declarations and jockey bookings as well as sending  post race reports that include trainer and jockey feedback.  As a trainer I’m always happy to suggest to new and existing owners that GPR are a good syndicate to get involved with as I can be confident that Alan will look after them well.”

 

Trainer - Ruth Carr

I have trained for Grange Park racing since 2012 when they bought a two year old “Muspelheim” from me.  Alan and his owners are fantastic to train for, they are patient, enthusiastic, great fun and lucky owners too! Alan does a great job of running the syndicate and keeps his owners really well informed

Trainer - Ann Duffield

We would thoroughly recommend Grange Park Racing to anyone considering owning a share in a racehorse.

Everyone is made to feel extremely welcome, with regular stable visits, newsletters and popular social events.

Alan Crombie always attends the racedays to ensure all the owners have a enjoyable day at the races.

The thrill of cheering our first winner last year with Toboggan's Fire at Beverley was amazing.

We had no hesitation in purchasing a share in another two year old this year.

We have made many friends at Grange Park Racing and look forward to further success in 2016

 

Owners - John & Sarah Fields

"We've found GPR to be a friendly, value for money, professionally run horse racing syndicate . Alan really looks after his owners and makes sure they always know everything that's happening regarding their horses with regular communication, frequent stable visits and detailed reviews of their races including the views of the trainer and the jockey. I've been involved with some other well known syndicates and they don't compare. I doubt there is a better value for money racing syndicate in the UK. We started with one horse with GPR and now have three and can't recommend Grange Park Racing highly enough."

Owners - Ged & Brenda Shields

I have been involved with race horse ownership with other syndicates for over 5 years  and I am very pleased with the service that Alan provides, nothing is too much trouble and the  feedback and race analysis after your horse has run, in my opinion is second to none. I hope I will still be in a position to be involved with GPR for many years to come.

Owner - David Thayre

I joined Grange Park Racing at the start of the year when they syndicated a horse with a trainer I was already involved as an owner with. The fact that I have extended my ownership with GPR since then is an indication of the enjoyment I have had since being joining them. Having been involved with other racing syndicates in the past, I find the team and other owners with GPR as good as any.  The quality of information on the horses provided by Alan both before race-day and after the horse has run coupled with the experience on the day is second to none with every thought taken in making you feel important as a shareholder in the horse. For anyone looking for a great experience as an owner with a personal touch, good horses with trainers who care about them, plenty of opportunities to visit the yards, and with decent chances to visit that elusive winning enclosure, I would highly recommend giving GPR a call.

Steve

I have been very impressed with Grange Park Racing since joining in December 2012, Alan has always informed me when my horse is entered and declared, the following day after the race I am emailed a full race report including trainer and jockey feed back. There has been several social events which have been great to get to meet other owners.
I would highly recommend GPR to anyone looking for an affordable racing syndicate.
