NEW THIS YEAR
Bahamian Bounty ex Laheen 2 year old colt
£2000 per share
A very attractive colt by a top class sire
He is now in full work and has done several pieces of fast work and has gone throughthe stalls. He is a great mover with a very good temperament. Viewing is highly recommended as I am sure he will be a popular choice to be involved with. To see him with Mark click on the video below.
Update 3rd May:
We have been doing some very good work with him during April on a variety of gallops. I have had him entered once or twice but the ground has been on the firm side and I don't want to introduce him on fast ground. He is a horse who is showing me plenty and we need to do everything right with him, which means taking care of him certainly ground wise in this his first season.
3 year old bay filly by Avonbridge ex Rutland Water
£1500 per share
A February foal, she is a strong attractive filly and by the very tough Avonbridge, who is getting plenty of quick horses. She hails from a good winning female line, one I know well, which includes Astrocharm, who won the Vodaphone Fillies stakes at Goodwood Group 3 for the yard a few years ago. She has had a light two year old career with a few runs for experience before finishing fourth and showing everybody what she is capable of. She was a bit unlucky that day not to have won and we can look forward very positively to 2013 flat season. If you want a good, sound, genuine filly this is the one for you, and she won't break the bank either.
Update - 3rd May:
I couldn't be happier with her than at present. She has progressed with each fast piece of work and is ready to run when we get some good ground. Her coat is hanging on but this warm weather should see it blossom and be looking a picture before long. She's a very genuine filly and my first big aim is to sort out her ideal trip. I shall be starting her at a mile which may well be her optimum.
5 year old chestnut gelding by Monsieur Bond ex Eurolink Cafe
Only one share left available at £2000
Comrade Bond is a cracking horse with size and scope, who continus to develop each year. He won twice last year and showed form on all types of surfaces. He has had a good break in the winter and is now back in training ready for the year ahead. I can see him improving once again in 2013 and developing into a top class handicapper.
Update - 3rd May:
A great start to the season at Yarmouth last week when he ran a cracker to be fourth. This is as good a run as he has ever done on his debut for the year, and as I have always thought he would improve again as he gets older. He is a real professional racehorse now who could win us a proper race this season.
6 year old winning filly by Zamindar out of Tenpence (Bob Back)
Four shares available to lease
A big, strong filly, who is very attractive. A mile to a mile and a quarter looks her trip and she may get further, just that little bit of cut in the ground helps her. After so many placed efforts and bad luck in running, she deservedly romped home in front at Redcar during last year's flat season and has already got us off the mark with a very exciting win at Lingfield this season.

Update -3rd May:Because of the move from Flint Cottage to Exeter Ride she has been at Garrowby since March. She is on the indoor walker daily. She is also being lunged and having time out in the boarded paddock when the weather allows. She will be back with me as soon as possible but I have had a slight hold up with the planning so it may be a bit later than I had hoped.
Comrade Bond: is entered on Saturday May 18th at Newmarket in the 1.45.
How it all works
As one of the pioneers of multiple ownership, we are continuing our successful syndicates in 2013. One-twelfth shares in each of the racehorses are available. To express interest, please contact Jenko on the address below.
Mike Jenkins, known to us all as Jenko (pictured left), runs Mark's syndicates and is the main point of contact for all the members. An ex-amateur jockey who also used to ride out for Mark on a regular basis, he shares his enjoyment of the sport with the members via e-mail, telephone and in person.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute I have spent as a part of such a fantastic yard... a special thanks must go to you Mr Jenkins... you know your job and are always on hand to answer any questions."
"Saying that it was the best day of my life would be to understate how I felt, one or two people thought I was having a heart attack when he crossed the line in front. I was more in danger of that when we got on the champagne."
"I'd like to take this opportunity to express my deep and sincere gratitude to all at the yard , and to you in particular, for your constant courtesy and professionalism. It is always a pleasure to deal with you and each visit to the stable, course or gallops a joy."

Locum winning at Yarmouth
"Another brilliant win and a great day out for us all! Well done and many thanks to all the team."
''Congratulations on the new website. I love it.''
''I can appreciate there has been a great deal of thought and planning gone into building the site, you have done an excellent job. Clean and easy to navigate too, which is a must for a user-friendly website.''
''Just viewed the new website - it's great.''
HOW WE OPERATE:
Once a twelfth share has been purchased, a monthly payment of £220 to be paid retrospectively (starting from December 1st 2012) is required to cover all keep costs.
There will be nothing more to pay, other than in exceptional circumstances such as travel to race abroad or unusual veterinary bills. The monthly payment covers basic training costs, entry fees, travel to meetings, jockey fees, farrier's charges etc.
It is the responsibility of each individual member to sell his or her share, if they wish to leave the syndicate, although obviously we would help with this as far as possible. However, when a member sells their share it shall be on the understanding that potential purchasers will be made fully aware of the syndicator's current terms and conditions. If payments are not received for two successive months the share will be deemed to have lapsed, and will be lost with no refund or prize share due.
Our aim is for every member to experience the joy of racehorse ownership:
- Why not give a share in one of our syndicates, as a birthday or Christmas present? It makes the perfect gift.
- We run each syndicate with the personal touch.
- Each member will be kept fully updated on the progress of their horse.
- We strive to create a sense of involvement for everyone, not only in their own horse but also in the whole stable.
We are constantly looking to put together new syndicates, so if you are interested in becoming involved, either in one of our present syndicates, or in the future, please contact:
