Default buying a share in a horse

Last race season some of my friends bought small shares in horses that were racing in the winter season at Nad, I am going to do the same this year. It sounds like good fun, as you have a share in the horse you are entitled into the owner's section where there is complimentary food etc. You can get to meet the jockeys and the trainers, and of course see 'your' horse race. At the end of the season there is a dividend paid out of the horses winning so if the horse you have picked has had a good season then you could win back your initial investment. Anyone else interested????

Default Re: buying a share in a horse

the prices vary from horse to horse -the one I am interested in is 1440 dhs or there abouts - must some of the better horses cost more obviously, I am going to try and arrange a meeting with my friend who runs the whole thing so we can ask questions and decide which ones to 'invest' in. You could even go 50/50 and share a share if that makes sense!!!

I'm guessing you didn't watch Emmerdale last night then.

Horses are bad news, unless you own a dog-food factory.

only food MH, NL - they actually owned that horse not a little share of it, being a share holder you don't have to pay anything extra - just gain extra if it wins, I am going to get a share in SAND CAT!! If there are any left!!!
