Today Arena Racing Company (‘ARC’) is pleased to announce the launch of its own ARC Racing Syndicate offering unique benefits for members.

ARC is entering the world of racehorse ownership via the all new ARC Racing Syndicates. The syndicate’s first horse is five year old Shadarpour, a proven dual-purpose horse who is about to go into training with leading trainer Alan King with the prospect of running in September.

The new concept is unrivalled by any other syndicates. ARC will bring a new dimension to syndicate ownership by offering an enhanced package of benefits available to all syndicate members. Members will not only become a shareholder in Shadarpour, but will also receive as part of their syndicate membership an ARC Annual Badge to go racing on all ARC courses all year round and comprehensive hospitality when the syndicate horse runs on an ARC course. They will also be able to purchase discounted badges for friends and family.

As an operator of 15 racecourses which stage nearly 40% of the fixture list there will be plentiful opportunities for members to enjoy racing. The syndicate will also provide members with a great opportunity to meet like-minded people and enjoy the excitement of racehorse ownership at a very competitive price with monthly costs at only £140.

Further information can be found at or calling the Syndicate Manager; Katie Stephens on 07866 698163.

Katie Stephens, Syndicate Manager and Clerk of Course at Bath Racecourse, said:

“We are very excited by this venture and have already sold a handful of shares. We believe Shadarpour is an excellent prospect to launch the syndicate due to his consistent form and obvious capabilities on a racecourse. We look forward to welcoming more members and horses to the syndicate.”

Alan King, Trainer of Shadarpour, said: ‘I am really looking forward to training for ARC Racing Syndicates. This new initiative looks great value and Shadarpour looks the sort to give syndicate members a lot of fun’
