Owner Testimonials

Since forming in 2010, we have made every effort possible to ensure that our owners get the very highest standards of communication and involvement. Below are a selection of some of the testimonials we have received from our owners.

"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

"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.

“I enjoyed ownership with GPR for over five years and loved every minute. I owned shares in several winning horses and managed to achieve all my ambitions in racing, including naming a 2yo and being there to watch him (Muspelheim) win. Alan is regularly in touch with owners and keeps you up to date with everything from race plans to post race feedback. The monthly newsletter is fantastic whilst the regular open mornings are an excellent opportunity to see your horse work on the gallops. Alan is passionate about racing and is, most importantly, a knowledgeable and genuine guy- get involved!”

Owner - Andrew Norrington

Myself and five work colleagues joined GPR at the beginning of 2013. We had researched several syndicates and felt GPR offered the best option for our fledgling ownership plans both in terms of participation, communication and value for money. As a group we are kept updated regularly on our horses via e-mail, text and newsletter. We are offered options for varying social events not always linked to our own horses and enjoy days at the races with a wide range of colleagues from our syndicate. We have been to stable visits, have watched our horses on the gallops, have enjoyed several trips to the races to see our horses run and have enjoyed the thrill of seeing one of our horses win and really enjoyed the champagne afterwards. I would recommend to anybody considering entering horse racing ownership to join GPR. We have had an excellent experience so far and are all looking forward to the remainder of the season.

Firstly i would like to thank you for all you have done by making us feel so welcome in GPR Racing Syndicate, our experience with GPR has been fantastic more than we ever expected, with this being our first time in a racing syndicate we did not know what to expect but you have helped us along and been great with keeping us informed with everything, we have also met some lovely people along the way, looking foward to more great days with GPR.

If you're looking to venture into the Sport of Kings then look no further than Grange Park Racing.A monthly newsletter packed full of information, regular stable visits and social events, jockey and trainer feedback after every race and with up to the minute info via Facebook, Twitter, text and e mail you won't be able to say you don't know what's going on with your horse. Run by knowledgeable, passionate and honest people who put their owners first you won't be disappointed with the results. This syndicate is on an upwards curve and knows where it's going. Hold onto your hats. What people really want though is winners and on this matter they don't disappoint either. My current tally with GPR stands at 3 though this figure will definitely increase before the end of this flat season. Someone once said that I was a lucky owner but I like to think luck plays no part and I just made a very sound decision in joining GPR. With shares in horses running under both codes to buy or lease there will be something to suit everyone and you don't have to be a Sheikh to get involved. Take the plunge and make a sound choice, come and join the 'lucky' owners at Grange Park Racing.
