Welcome to the home of Group 1 Racing! We are the longest established racehorse ownership group and with it pride ourselves on being a small, friendly and successful club.
We have become a major force over hurdles and fences, celebrating 63 winners and 226 placed horses to date in our distinctive Group 1 Racing red and yellow colours. We have been largely dormant during 2019 & 2020 after we gave Yourholidayisover away to Lady Susan Brooke in February 2019 and sold Little Lotte on, to race in Jersey. So our most recent wins are some time ago! Yourholidayisover (IRE) over fences at Plumpton on 16th January, 2017 and Little Lotte (IRE) twice over hurdles at Les Landes on 14 May and previously Easter Monday 2017. We do occasionally run on the flat and have previously found success in both Group & Listed races (with Linpac West.)
We have now launched the Group 1 Racing 2020 Club, which runs for a period in excess of 2 years to Dec 2022. Join us now. Great value for just a one-off payment of £365 for the 2+ years’ involvement. Or, you could have a closer involvement with our intended new partnership horse, acquired from the (Oct 28-31 2019) Newmarket Horses in Training Sales. A 1/10th partnership share (to be sold at cost) In Persuer (GB) costs just £523 (including 2 years’ membership of the Club) and just £70 per month (Club subsidised) keep. There is nothing else to pay. This represents £315 + VAT (cost of the horse) and a discounted Club joining fee of £145.

Our 2015 press release was an exciting one, reviewing Thats Ben also winning over fences at Plumpton! : Easter Weekend Success.
Unlike most other racing clubs, uniquely you have true racehorse ownership as well as being able to enjoy a very real racehorse ownership experience. Owners’ badges are guaranteed where the Group 1 Racing Club has a runner and you will not be subjected to any form of ballot process to obtain these. You can enjoy the remarkable exclusivity we offer to our members as we provide intimate access to the horses, jockeys, trainers and their teams at the yard. We have a Club meet every 4th Saturday morning at the stables/gallop for members and prospective members. Tweet to @GrettonLaura or email email@example.com, We also run offshore racing trips with Club horses, annually.
As a member of Group 1 Racing, you are not treated like a number; there is a great sense of community within our members. It isn’t just about the horses, but the social and personal aspects alongside. We invite all members to become familiar names and faces to each other!
Established for 30 years we have a great past history, and a bright future.
