Our Story

Anna Gold Story Photo

George Hunnam and Andrew Clark began the Havelock Racing Syndicates principally to buy yearlings at cost-effective prices and then syndicate them, with real involvement for members and hopefully, this results in priceless memories for all.

There is absolutely nothing like cheering a winner home and we have done that on many occasions since starting out.

We only run one or two syndicates per year and we start in mid-summer reviewing over 2,000 yearlings in the Tattersalls yearling catalogues with a view to buying one or two yearlings in the October Auction.

With the aid of George’s daughter Jo (an ex-jockey), we further reduce the shortlist and hopefully succeed in buying yearlings at sensible prices which enables fun to be had at the right price.

George and his wife Lynne then look after the yearlings for around 3 to 4 months in Northumberland until they are ready to go into training with our trainer Richard Fahey.

Our Syndicates

  • We like to set up small syndicates with between four and ten members to own the yearling outright.
  • All Syndicates are run with no management costs. All direct costs-Training fees, Vets fees, Transport costs fully declarable to all members.
  • All members get involved in naming the yearling.
  • We maintain close contact with our members from the very start of ownership.

Health & Welfare

BTRC Logo

Pre racing our horses get the best of care with George and Lynn in their stables and paddocks near Newcastle. Richard Fahey has said that he has never seen young horses in better condition than when they arrive from Havelock.

During their racing careers, they have the care of a top ten trainer in this country with a record that speaks for itself.

After racing, we ensure that every horse leaves us for a good home. The last horse to leave us, Doctor Cross, was sent to The British Thoroughbred Retraining Centre in Lancaster, Lancashire.

BTRC is dedicated to improving and promoting the welfare of retired racehorses through education, rehabilitation, retraining and suitable rehoming in order to ensure that our Thoroughbreds have a rewarding and valuable life after their racing careers have ended. BTRC take pride in finding homes for life for our horses and enjoy seeing them live a long and happy life with their loaners. Once the horse is successfully rehomed, it remains under the ownership of the BTRC and is loaned out under specific conditions to ensure its lifelong welfare. The BTRC never buys or sells horses. Although a lot of our horses go on to a more sedate way of life enjoying hacking and pleasure rides, those horses capable of more are re-homed to competitive homes where they excel in many different disciplines.

Doctor Cross

Doctor Cross was a fantastic horse to have for our syndicate members. Winning twice and finishing in the first four in a further twelve times. He is now happily retired from Racing and with BTRC looking forward to the next phase of his life.

Testimonials

"I’ve been with Havelock for 6 years now and in that time I’ve been really impressed with their knowledge, professionalism and communication. Unlike many syndicates all costs are laid out and there’s total transparency. But most of all its their friendliness that marks them out as a very special syndicate… they create an environment where you really feel involved."

Ged Shields Current Owner

"We were part owners of Grey Street and found the organisation at Havelock Racing to be ideal for novice owners like ourselves. Andrew, George and Lynne come together as an excellent team; their knowledge, patience and collaboration make for a smooth- running operation. We were always kept up to date and in the picture which made us feel part of that team. We have no doubt that Lynne and George's professional nurturing of the young horses play a huge part in their future careers. It goes without saying that we wish Havelock Racing continued success."

Jen & Howard Dalton Past Owners

"Havelock are a very friendly bunch of knowledgeable racegoers who regularly come on stable visits. They have had horses in training with me for over 10 years and long may it continue. They are a pleasure to train for."

Richard Fahey Havelock Racing Trainer

"On arrival at BTRC Doctor Cross looked fantastic, the care and rehabilitation he had been receiving following his injury was second to none. It was a pleasure dealing with George and Andrew when arranging the transfer of Doctor Cross, communication was easy and they were able to answer any questions we had and provide all required information. We are looking forward to seeing how Doctor Cross progresses through our rehab and retraining programme. Thank you for trusting BTRC with your boy."
