Christine Dunnett Racing Syndicate 2017

coloursNew for 2017 the Christine Dunnett Racing syndicate has been formed to offer the opportunity for multiple racehorse ownership, combined with fun and really affordable cost options.

Whether new or experienced in racehorse ownership, our theme for this syndicate has been built upon bringing like-minded people together, those who love horses and racing and want to share in the buzz and exhilaration of racehorse ownership at close quarters.

Running from 1 January 2017 – 31 December 2017 this syndicate will provide up to four horses in training in order to give you the best opportunity of enjoying an uninterrupted ownership experience and regular racing.

There will be a minimum of two horses in training for the syndicate at all times during the year.

All horses will be offered on a “Free Lease” basis alleviating the need for a large capital outlay.


When you join CDR you will be eligible for the following:

  • One complimentary owners’ badge is guaranteed per member when your horse(s) runs, giving access to the exclusive owners and trainers areas of the racecourse and the hospitality afforded to owners at the course.
  • The opportunity to enter the paddock, meet the trainer and jockey before the race and hopefully enter the winners enclosure at the end of the race.
  • All net prize-money won will be divided proportionately between members at the end of the term.
  • Regular updates on the progress of your horses and future racing plans.
  • There is no limit to the number of shares an individual, or group of people, can hold.

The Horses

The syndicate will initially comprose of the following four horses:

Classic Flyer (GB)
Breeding – By Stimulation (IRE) out of Tranquil Flight (GB) (Oasis Dream)

classicflyerClassic Flyer is from the first crop of Carmarthenshire based stallion Stimulation, who, trained by Hughie Morrison was a high-class 7-10f performer at 3-5 years winning 3 races from 16 starts including the Victor Chandler Challenge Stakes, Newmarket Gr.2, (7f) and the European free Hcp, Newmarket, L (7f).

A recent purchase from the Doncaster Autumn Horses in Training sale, Classic Flyer is already a 5 time winner and should give us a lot of fun during 2017.

He is a strong hardy type who takes his racing well and has been a consistent performer throughout his career so far.

Sound and genuine, he is now on a realistic mark of 65 (BHA Rating) and we expect him to be our flag bearer during the season over sprint distances of 5 and 6 furlongs.  He is already a favourite in the yard at College Farm.


Fastpastthepost (IRE)
Breeding – By Fast Company (IRE) out of Jaldini (IRE)  (Darshaan)

fastpastthepostFastpastthepost is by the Darley based stallion Fast Company whose popularity has soared recently being the sire of the 2016 Tattersalls Irish 1,000 Guineas winner (Gr.1) JET SETTING.

Raced only three times at 2 he was second joint rated 2yo in Europe in 2007 winning the Tattersalls Millions Acomb Stakes, York (Gr.3) and finishing second in the Darley Dewhurst Stakes, Newmarket (Gr.1).

Fastpasthepost’s Dam was unraced but she has produced the 3 time Listed winner JALMIRA who won 9 races overall at 4 to 7 years and £230,510 and was placed a further 21 times.

An injury has so far kept Fastpastthepost off the track but he is recovering well and it is hoped he will make his long awaited debut in 2017 (if not before).



Samara Belle (GB)
Breeding – By Black Sam Bellamy (IRE) out of Scrupulous (GB) (Dansili)

samarabelle1Samara Belle is nicely bred by the top class middle distance performer BLACK SAM BELLAMY who is a full brother to the multiple Champion Sire, GALILEO.

His offspring are known for improving with age and many make the transition from the flat, to careers over jumps.  Samara Belle’s Dam, Scrupulous was a winner at 3 years and was placed once.

Samara Belle has been given time to develop and has had just one educational run to date.

She is in full training and improving all the time.

She will initially run on the flat but may progress to run over hurdles and could be a fun dual purpose horse in time.



Unnamed (GB)
Breeding – By Baltic King (GB) out of Flaming Telepath (GB) (Storming Home)

baltickingOur as yet unnamed homebred colt will begin his 2yo season in 2017.

Buck is a Bay colt born 30th March 2015 by BALTIC KING out of Flaming Telepath, half sister to Listed and Group winning performers.

BALTIC KING was the magnificent Royal Ascot Record breaker, a multiple Listed and Group placed performer who was very tough and raced until he was 7.

He has sired multiple Listed and Group placed performers.

I have picked this youngster as I feel he has the makings of a nice 2yo and we will crack on to get him on the track early in his 2yo career.

If at any time there are doubts or his training is delayed I am happy to replace with another individual who maybe more likely to run for the syndicate.

Thereby always ensuring there are a minimum of 2 runners for the syndicate.
