You, too, could live the Chel­tenham dream

Be on the win­ning team with the Ditcheat Thor­ough­breds rac­ing syn­di­cate

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

Hav­ing a run­ner at the Chel­tenham Fes­ti­val— es­pe­cially one with a great chance of walk­ing back into the win­ner’s en­clo­sure at the home of Na­tional Hunt rac­ing—is ev­ery jump-rac­ing fan’s dream. That dream could come true next week for the Ditcheat Thor­ough­breds syn­di­cate, who will have their first Fes­ti­val run­ner.

Al­ready a triple win­ner this sea­son, Coillte Lass is one of 10 top-qual­ity horses trained by 10-times cham­pion trainer Paul Nicholls at Ditcheat in Som­er­set for the most talked-about syn­di­cate in rac­ing.

Founder Ian Fogg ex­plains: ‘We’ve taken the plunge and bought very good horses— “Satur­day” horses—who can run on the big race days. You give your­self the best chance pos­si­ble by be­ing with Paul. Spend­ing time with him, both at the races and at his fan­tas­tic yard, is

just one of the won­der­ful things about the Ditcheat Thor­ough­breds syn­di­cate—even the par­ish priest has joined!’

The pack­age, which is a twoyear deal, in­cludes race­course hos­pi­tal­ity, the chance to watch horses on the gal­lops and other exclusive events, plus you’ll al­ways be in touch via a ded­i­cated App, web­site, pod­casts and weekly up­dates. Prize money and horse sale funds go back to the syn­di­cate mem­bers. Some shares are still avail­able. ‘There’s so much to look for­ward to,’ says Paul Nicholls. ‘If you’re even half-tempted, come and join us!’
