Consists of between five and 20 individuals of whom at least one must become, or already be, registered owners.
This is a way of using your company to own a horse. The company is in effect a ‘sole owner’ but shareholders in the company participate in racehorse ownership through their shareholdings. It can be great way of advertising your company. The horse can be named after your company providing you buy a horse that is unnamed.
