When you become an owner, you become a member of a fascinating club. There's the fun of buying your horse, choosing your colours, watching your horse on the gallops in the early morning light (and rain!), and, of course, the thrill and anticipation of being in the paddock before and after a race.

Whether you win or lose, the action is electrifying – it's second to none – and you’re right in the thick of it.

British horseracing and breeding are major players in a truly international industry.

Drawing on three centuries of equine tradition, Britain offers unparalleled excitement and a unique wealth of professionalism and facilities. Nowhere else in the world can boast so diverse and challenging a racing calendar, providing the ultimate test for the modern thoroughbred.

Combined with heritage, quality and value of British thoroughbreds and sales, it is no surprise that so many people from all over the world choose Britain for their bloodstock.
