Becoming an Owner

Owning a racehorse is now accessible to everyone, with different forms of ownership allowing you to indulge in racing at a contribution suited to you.

Here at James Ewart Racing we pride ourselves on our regular communication with owners, to include photographs and videos of your horse in training. You are always welcome at the stables and we urge you to come and watch your horse on the gallops, in the peaceful surroundings of Langholm.

Our annual Owners Party is a prestige event and compliments the many race meets we attend throughout the season. This enables you to enjoy the sociable side to racehorse ownership while we focus on maximising the potential of your horse.

Forms of ownership:


Sole Ownership

You 100% own a horse, which you purchased within or outside of James Ewart Racing. Therefore, you make all of the decisions and receive all of the owner’s prize money. As a sole owner you must be registered with Weatherbys and are responsible for all the costs of the horses keep.

If you choose James Ewart Racing to train your horse you will be invoiced a monthly training fee, in agreement with the training rate as outlined in the stable training contract.

Co-Ownership and Racehorse Syndicates

These schemes allow everyone the opportunity to be involved in horseracing without large costs. James Ewart Racing welcomes all new owners and will readily introduce individuals to the sport.

In both schemes you own a percentage of a horse which is shared between a group of 2-20 people. Two of the members are registered as owners with Weatherbys and must act as the nominated partners, jointly serving liability for the group under the Rules of Racing.



At James Ewart Racing you pay an upfront purchase fee, in accordance with your percentage of shares. Please note our minimum share is 5%. Thereafter, you would be invoiced a monthly training fee, according to your owned percentage and the agreed training rate as outlined in the stable training contract.


Racehorse Syndicates

Similar to Co-Ownership you can set up your own syndicate with the assistance of James Ewart Racing.




You can join The Craig Farm Syndicate which is already set up and actively managed by the stable. This is ideal for beginners to horseracing and individuals. The syndicate offers several horses under lease meaning no upfront purchase fee. Members are responsible for training fees, according to their syndicate shares.
