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 222 placed horses to date in our distinctive Group 1 Racing red and yellow colours – the latest wins were 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 recently launched the Group 1 Racing 2017 Club, which runs for just short of 3 years to Dec 2019. Join us now. Great value for just a one-off payment of £595 for the 3 years’ involvement. Or, you could have a closer involvement with recent two time hurdles winner Little Lotte with a 1/10th partnership share for £1095 (including 3 years’ membership of the Club) and just £50 per month (Club subsidised) keep. Please see: How do partnership horse shares work? and Buy a partnership horse share
Yourholidayisover (IRE) is super consistent running over fences for the Club, and wins in first time blinkers. He joined the Club string to continue his chasing career. Already a winner over hurdles off a mark of 100. Please see: current horse list
Our 2015 press release was an exciting one, reviewing Thats Ben also winning over fences at Plumpton! : Easter Weekend Success.
Unlike 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. This year we went to Jersey on Easter Monday with Little Lotte. She is now returning for the Summer jumps season at Stratford, Worcester and Uttoxeter. She goes particularly well on fast ground.
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 over 25 years we have a great past history, but an even brighter future.
