Our track record speaks for itself, with many successes over the years like NEWSTEAD ABBEY, who notched 3 wins on the bounce for us. Most notably winning the Royal Mile handicap at Musselburgh, before going on to fly the Let's Be Lucky colours running at Royal Ascot. PLAY NICELY was a Southwell specialist who won 3 out of 4 races for us at the track in the red & black. The first of those being an incredible win by 13 lengths over a mile and 2. He then went on to win a nice handicap at Beverly on the turf, before being sold for more than 4 times what we paid for him. It's a team effort at LBL and we believe in our ability to find out quickly what horses need and get the best out of them. As far as horse racing syndicates go, you can't go far wrong with Let's Be Lucky Racing. Buy racehorse shares with us today! 


NewMarket OCTOBER SALES Purchase!

JUMP THE GUN (2yo Colt by Make Believe)

We were at the Tattersalls sales in Newmarket in October and we were over the moon to secure our number one target Jump The Gun. Trainer Jamie Osborne told us after purchase that  he rates him highly and said that he thinks he will win a big 3 year old handicap for us next year.


He's better than most of his runs suggest and his best runs were at York on his debut, his
impressive Southwell win and his handicap 2nd at Ffos Las behind Endless Joy, who was a close 3rd in Group 3 company next time out. He's a very exciting horse and off 78  is a well handicapped horse who should win a few for us next year and maybe even graduate to being a stakes performer.  


 It's not often that after purchase the trainer of the horse you bought would come to see the new owners, but Jamie Osborne did exactly that. He told us everything about Jump The Gun and it was clear that he liked the horse a lot and thought he should have won more races under his care. He also told us his thoughts on the perfect ground and trip for him and that he would improve as a 3 year old, making him a very exciting prospect for next season and beyond.
 

Jump The Gun will be trained by Iain Jardine and he's delighted with our purchase.


1.25% £650 - 2.5% £1,200  5% £2,300 - 10% £4,500 


The  price includes Purchase, VAT, Gelding, Transport from sales and all expenses up to 31/12/19. The 1st training fees will be due on the 7th of February for January fees. 


We already have a lot of interest in this horse, so please get in touch now to book your share

HAVANA PARTY (Colt by Havana Gold, out of Ferayha)

  

This colt is out of Ferayha, a Darley-bred mare that raced once for Roger Varian in the Sheikh Ahmed Al Maktoum silks. She has produced four foals to this point, and only one runner, but there are high-quality elements to her pedigree, which indicate a bright future. Feryaha is out of the Grp-3 placed Albahaja, and five of her siblings were successful on the track. She is also a daughter of the great Cape Cross, whose reputation as a broodmare sire continues to soar. His mares are now responsible for the six-time Grp-1 winner Laurens and the Derby winners Masar and Australia, amongst others. Ferayha's other progeny yet to race include a two-year-old filly by sire of the moment Cable Bay, who can add to the page in due course. 


The sire of this yearling, Havana Gold, was a Grp-3 winning two-year-old that trained on to win the Grp-1 Prix Jean Prat at three. He has made a very strong start to his stallion career, with his eldest progeny now four years of age. He was Champion First Crop Sire in 2017 and has already produced the Grp-1 winning sprinter and now sire Havana Grey and the dual Grp-3 winner Treasuring. He has been so successful that they have now raised his stud fee to £15,000, making him one of the top stallions in the country at the moment. Havana Gold has previously paired with a Cape Cross mare to produce the three-time winner Blyton Lass, and there is no reason to suggest this colt cannot follow in her footsteps and confirm the potency of the nick. Trainer Paul George reports that he has been doing everything asked of him, has a great attitude and is enjoying his work. HAVANA PARTY looks to be a smashing prospect for next year and beyond.

ELECTRIC ANGEL (Filly by Markaz, out of All Fur Coat)

  

Yearling filly by Mecca’s Angel’s full-sibling Markaz. The sire was a very classy operator at up to seven-furlongs for Owen Burrows, winning the Grp-3 Criterion Stakes and the Grp-3 Chipchase Stakes. A £200,000 yearling, he is by the outstanding Dark Angel and is a full-brother to the brilliant dual Grp-1 Nunthorpe Stakes heroine Mecca's Angel, so a stallion career was assured once he demonstrated above average racecourse talent. His first crop is awaited with great expectation in 2020, as he attracted a high-quality book of mares for his initial covering season. This was reflected in the sales ring as his foals sold for up to €60,000 last year, whilst at the recent Goffs UK Premier Yearling Sale his yearlings went for as much as £50,000. 


His speed influence looks sure to match well with the dam of this filly, All Fur Coat, who earned a peak rating of 87 having won over five-furlongs at Chester in the Lily Agnes Stakes (Class 2) as a two-year-old. Since retiring to breeding duties she has successfully matched with sprinters to produce two previous winners. All Fur Coat is in turn a sibling of the Listed-placed Prince Of Elegance, whilst her unraced half-sister Majestic Diva has gone on to produce the 13-time winner Stonefield Flyer - whose most notable performance occurred when second in the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot. This is a seriously smart, fast and precocious pedigree. Trainer Paul George describes her as a "rocket" and also that she is a good mover and displays a lovely temperament. ELECTRIC ANGEL looks a tailormade two-year-old for next season.

WESTERN DAWN

image7

WESTERN DAWN (2016 Colt BY Dawn Approach & Yes Oh Yes)

Will be trained by Phil Makin in Thirsk.

(35% AVAILABLE)

 

We had to fend off a couple of UK trainers but we were over the moon  that we bought our main target. He is a 3 year old son of Dawn Approach  who routed a strong field of sprinter maidens on his first start when  not fully tuned up. He did not have to be given a strong ride to win and  beat off a field that has thrown up many winners since. Trainer Phil Makin told me he's a proper horse and  that we should go all in for him because he could be anything.   


He is a big, strong and stunning looking horse with no problems at all. He's currently rated  78 (was 86) and is the most exciting purchase we have made since Jabbaar. He needed his debut run in October at Newcastle and we ran there to blow the cob webs away and to find out how he went on sand. The 6 furlong winner moved very well behind the leaders before tiring coming up the hill. 


2.5% shares £1,150 All inclusive fees are £80 per month.    

5% shares £2,200. All inclusive fees are £150 per month.  

All expenses covered to 30/09/19.


Prize money is sent over several times per year less BHA fees.

AZOR AHAI

AZOR AHAI (2016 Gelding  BY Sixties Icon & Good Morning Lady)

Will be trained by Chris Gordon in Winchester.

(40% AVAILABLE)


Both Chris Gordon and Phil Makin loved this fellow. He is a very  sound horse with no issues and a very enthusiastic nature. We have had  very good reports about the horse and I think he's worth every penny of  the purchase price and more. He's been rated as high at 80 and is now down to a well handicapped 72.


I am thrilled  that we managed to buy him because he had many much higher rated horses  around him in his in his maiden runs. He has plenty of guts, is tough,  genuine and has lots of improvement to come. He has done very well since purchase will be running in October and we think he's good enough to be running in big handicaps in 2020.    


2.5% Shares £900  All inclusive fees are £80 per month.  

5% shares £1,700 All inclusive fees are £150 per month.   

All expenses covered to 30/09/19.


Prize money is sent over several times per year less BHA fees.

JABBAAR

JABBAAR (2013 Gelding by Medician & Echelon)

Trained by Iain Jardine in Dumfries

(25% AVAILABLE)


Some shares have become available in our most consistent performer. Jabbaar has been a great horse for the syndicate over the past 2 seasons, winning 3 times and being placed a further 17 times in just 25 starts. He's picked up over £70,000 in prize money so far and we are confident he can land a couple of big races for us in the future.


He will now be schooled over the jumps by Iain Jardine, who will train him as a dual purpose horse going forward. Tom Eaves who rode Jabbaar to a close 2nd at Catterick in October this year, said he felt in great order and is certain to win more races. He is now off a good mark of 85 and will be a danger in every race he enters.


4 x 2.5 % shares available at £900 and 2 x 5% shares at £1650 up front for the 5 % share plus £80 per month for 2.5% and £150 per month for 5% all-inclusive of training and vet expenses.

FLOOD DEFENCE WINNING AT CARLISLE

Flood Defence wins at Carlisle! Our mare finally got her first win for us under a brilliant ride by Jamie Gormley at Carlisle in August. She loved the conditions on the day and ended up winning with a bit to spare!

FUMBO JUMBO WINNING AT THIRSK

Fumbo Jumbo picked up her first win for us in impressive style at Thirsk! Despite missing the break, she finished brilliantly to get her head in front. Credit to Rebecca Bastiman who seems to have turned this horse around! Great ride by Jamie Gormley.

MAJESTE WINNING AT CARLISLE

Majeste made it 2 wins in 3 days after winning at Hamilton and then Carlisle in quick succession. This horse has really came on since stepping up in trip and loves the softer ground. We feel he will stay even further going forward!

SIOUX FRONTIER Winning At Hamilton

Watch our exciting new horse Sioux Frontier winning his 2nd race on the trot at Hamilton in May. As soon as he got the gap at the bottom of the hill, we knew he would kick on and finish strongly. Another great ride by Lewis Edmunds.
