THE POPLAR COTTAGE RACING CLUB
This has been our first, flagship members club offering from us here at Mel Rowley Racing and what a great year it has been. It has allowed members to experience racehorse ownership in a fun and affordable way. It really has been a sociable occasion as well as them enjoying some prize money too.
Blue Beech and Prime Time Lady are the two horses we have had in training for the club and they have been fantastic!
The opportunity has given owners the chance to attend National Hunt courses when the horses are running and get the full owners experience including going into the paddock and being wined and dined. Prime Time Lady has won on two occasions, first in the National Hunt Maiden Hurdle at Warwick and then again at Cartmel in the Mares’ Novices’ Hurdle. She ran in total 5 times and was never out of the top 3, always running from the front at full throttle throughout!
Blue Beach also won on her first outing, winning the Mares’ Open National Hunt Flat Race at Uttoxeter very impressively by 12 lengths and is now the highest rated Bumper filly in the country!
A great first year for the club.
We opened up a maximum of 20 shares for this syndicate as we wanted it to be a small, fun and friendly group of owners to really enjoy the racing experience with us.
