About Us

The aim of the club is to provide the fun and enjoyment of racehorse ownership at a fraction of the cost.

Inside Track Racing Club was founded in 1999 and handed over in 2000 to Eric Sames and has since grown from a few members and one loaned horse to over 40 owners, with 4 owned race horses. We are a small friendly group of people interested in having fun, being involved in horseracing and racehorse ownership. We also have various social events during the year, such as BBQ’s at the stables, 2 race days ayear plus a Christmas race day party, all held at Lingfield.

Also, approximately every 4-6 weeks on a Saturday morning, we watch our Epsom horses train, then Eric & Pam's famous sausage rolls with tea and coffee. Many of our horses come from Peter & Ross Doyle bloodstock (www.doyleracing.com) who have enjoyed remarkable worldwide success in providing champion horses.

Members will own a part of a horse, normally in increments of 5%, although a few 2.5% shares are available for smaller owners and of course you can also have shares in more than one horse. Syndicates are named after each horse and are self financing, paying for all costs in running the horse, as well as the share holder keeping the winnings!

The typical costs involved for a club horse start from as little as £1000 for a 2.5% share and from £50 per month for all in training and racing costs. The 5% and above owner will be treated as a full owner, getting free entry into most race courses. The 2.5% owner will get a reduced race day entry badge every time the horse runs and you may well get in free, as well as into the parade ring, depending on the number of syndicate members attending.

Members also enjoy all of the benefits of Ownership and Club Membership which includes:

  • A pro rata share in the prize money of their syndicated horse/s and profit from the sale of horse/s
  • Complimentary, or discounted owners badges when club horses run and occasionally a box to meet in
  • Regular letters, e-mails and the latest is text messaging direct from the desk of ITRC
  • Regular social gatherings
  • Other exciting fringe benefits when available

The welfare of our horses is an important aspect of the club and our trainer’s wife Pippa, runs a rest and recuperation facility (www.paddockspace.com), to help bring out the best in a racehorse. 

Inside Track also help retired racehorses through supporting www.hwad.co.uk, who are dedicated to caring for ex-racehorses, as we like to give something back for the enjoyment we receive from racing!
