We are delighted to work with Nathaniel Barnett and Tom Raine of Pimlico Racing, who have a burgeoning team of horses here at Knockeen and offer an exceptional ownership experience for anyone looking to get involved in a racing syndicate with us.

Shares in Pimlico Racing horses range from 2.5% to 20% and members receive all the benefits of being a racehorse owner, including the following:

  • Owners badge on racedays

  • Registration as an owner with HRI (Horse Racing Ireland)

  • Equal share of prize-money

  • Regular stable visits

  • Busy and varied Social Diary

  • Annual Owners’ Dinner

Pimlico Racing offers a fully transparent syndication service, so members receive a full financial statement every six months, with unused funds returned alongside any prize-money won.


The current horses at Knockeen with us are as follows:

BARON WILD:  Purchased off the flat, this 67-rated three year old has plenty of experience in handicap company that will stand him in good stead when sent hurdling.  He has an excellent middle-distance pedigree and we hope he can develop into a useful juvenile hurdler this term. 

Shares available

COOLE ARCADE: A winner at Fairyhouse earlier this year for his previous connections, Coole Arcade joined us in June and looks a potentially well-handicapped sort to go over hurdles and fences this season. 

Shares available

UNNAMED BY SAGEBURG:  A beautifully-bred filly, she is a half-sister to three black-type mares and was purchased at the Goffs Land Rover Sale.  She is a high-class prospect and we will look to start her off on the track next year. 

Shares available

ALICE AVRIL: A four year old daughter of Balko, she has a rating of 125 in France (where she was a winner over hurdles) and looks a hugely exciting chasing prospect, being a half-sister to Grade 1 performers Grand Sancy and Keskonrisk. 

Shares sold out

COTTIE:  Runner-up on her debut in a bumper at the Galway Festival and subsequently fifth in Listed company, Cottie is a new arrival to the yard and looks an exciting novice hurdling prospect for the season ahead.

Shares sold out

MAKFILS: An 80-rated performer on the flat in France, he joined us in January 2021 and has the pedigree and physique to suggest he can develop into a useful performer over hurdles.  

Shares sold out

SCHONE AUSSICHT: Claimed for just €8,000 in France, she has won twice already since joining us and continues to progress.  She has an excellent attitude and looks sure to provide her owners with plenty of success in the future. 

Shares sold out

Both Nathaniel and Tom have a wealth of experience within the racing industry, have already enjoyed considerable success with their syndicates and we look forward to celebrating plenty of winners together.
