SYNDICATES at McPherson Racing


Syndication has quickly become the most popular way of owning a racehorse. We are fortunate to have some brilliant syndicates involved in the yard, these can be found below.

Why should I join a Syndicate?

Syndication is a great way to get involved in ownership, of course you’ll own a smaller percentage of the horse but you’ll also share the finances with others making it more cost effective. Many syndicate members also enjoy sharing the experience of race days with others and have made many like minded friends through racing syndicates.

You can find out more about different types of ownership below…

Shaw racing are delighted to offer shares in GETTHEPOT, a 4-year-old gelding by Getaway out of an unraced Oscar mare called Raheen Lady.

The dam is a sister to…

– LORD STRICKLAND (10 wins – 5 over hurdles, 5 over fences)
– MILL OF THE RAGS (7 wins – 3 over hurdles, 4 over fences)
– RAG WEEK (winner over hurdles)
– MONA CURRA GALE – prolific brood mare (dam of WISE OSCAR and BUAILTEOR)
– RAG’S LADY – prolific brood mare (dam of AVONDHU LADY and ANYTIME NOW)

The dam is a daughter of

– LADY RAG, who is a sister to
– HANSEL RAG (6 wins – bumper winner, listed hurdle winner, listed chase placed)
– NO SIR ROM (5 wins – flat winner, bumper winner, hurdle winner, chase winner, listed chase placed).

The dam has bred 4 runners, of which 3 have won to date, meaning that GETTHEPOT has 3 winning brothers. GETTHEPOT has been in training in Ireland with Shark Hanlon. He had 1 run in a point to point in the spring for experience, but then ran last week at Ballindenisk in a 4 year old
maiden. He finished 5th, beaten 10 lengths. It looks as though it was a good 4 year old point to point. The time was good – only 1 second slower than the 5yo maiden on the same card, won by FILL THE TANK The 4 horses in front of him were all decent and trained by good Irish point to point trainers.

– Winner was MINELLA MAJESTIC, trained by John Nallen. He cost £32k as a foal. He is a Shantou half brother 2 highly-rated horses (Corball Ghost & Goal)
– Second was NOBLE YEATS, trained by Donal Hassett. He is a half-brother to Nicky Henderson’s decent She Mite Bite.
– Third was EASTER IN MILAN, trained by Donnchadh Doyle. That had looked the likely winner of a point when falling 2 out 2 weeks previously. He was a £35k 3 year old.
– Fourth was BOURBON STREET, trained by Colin Bowe. He was a £24k 3yo and is a brother to Jonjo O’Neill’s Orrisdale (2 wins from 3 starts – bumper & maiden hurdle).
