With the Jump racing season somewhat curtailed with the Covid-19 pandemic, we now start to look forward to the forthcoming 2020-22 Cheltenham and South West Syndicate, something which is much needed to lift our spirits in these challenging times.
The new syndicate will feature both Diamond River, who is a very exciting and unexposed individual and Hes No Trouble who has already won twice and we hope will show even more following the wind operation he underwent in early March 2020. By all accounts, both are considered to be good prospects for the future and given we have yet to see the best of either, makes a great case to keep them for a further two seasons.
There will be another horse and trainer added to these to make up the three horses in training. We are currently looking at various options for the third trainer and horse and, as soon as we are in a position to do so, will update the website.
As well as the involvement in and partial ownership of these three horses, members will again be entitled to:
- Two seasons full annual membership at our four South West courses – Cheltenham, Exeter, Wincanton, Warwick
- Access to a private facility for the 2021 and 2022 Cheltenham Festival’s
- Organised stable visits, trips and discounted hospitality around the region
- Access to The Racing Manager for updates on all three of the Syndicate’s horses
As a participating member of the Cheltenham and South West syndicate himself, ITV Racing’s Ed Chamberlin says:
"As I’ve said many times on ITV, I’m a big fan of ownership syndicates in racing. The Cheltenham and South West Syndicate is a particularly exciting opportunity for racing enthusiasts as, beyond the access to three top trainers, all the fun events and that it’s full of lovely people, it includes full membership to the home of jump racing at Cheltenham as well as the three other fantastic Jockey Club courses at Exeter, Wincanton and Warwick. It really is a great way to experience the joy of racehorse ownership."
