The Craig Farm Syndicate is a Syndicate set up by James Ewart Racing in Autumn 2012, aptly named after our stable location Craig Farm, the Ewart family home set in the heart of the Scottish border town of Langholm.

Racehorse ownership can appear somewhat daunting in terms of cost, management and in the past has been associated as a sport for the elite, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

In horse racing syndicate ownership is becoming more and more popular, with lots of opportunities for any racing enthusiast to become part of a sport that they love. At James Ewart Racing we have welcomed syndicate ownership for a number of seasons now.

The idea behind The Craig Farm Syndicate was to form a group of enthusiastic race goers to come together. The syndicate is controlled and managed by the stable, and any individual can apply via the stable office to become a part of this fun group.

Syndicate Testimonial

“ We have a great bunch of people already in The Craig Farm Syndicate and they’ve really enjoyed themselves. When Unex Canaletto won the celebrations went on for some time. Now we’re looking forward to having some summer fun with a cracking flat horse.” 

James Ewart


Congratulations to all concerned with Sleepy with his win at Kelso. What a start for us since joining the syndicate. Hope he got the polo's we sent for him.

Well Done today. What an epic way to be introduced to The Craig Farm Syndicate.

Had a great day at Kelso and what a STAR Sleep In First was and many congratulations for getting best turned out horse as well,

in fact in my modest opinion he was the best of the day!!
