: Prominent racing and media personality and successful racehorse syndicator Shelley Hanxox has set herself a new challenge.
Together with Rod Peacock, her business partner in Hancox Bloodstock Pty Ltd, Hancox has launched a Racing Club – Hancox Racing No.1 Ltd - to race five quality horses over three years in Victoria and NSW.
There are 800 shares on offer for a one-off payment of $890 per share covering all expenses for three years.
Hancox has been running her own syndication business since 1988 and was joined by Peacock in 1998.
Hancox Bloodstock has a long history of introducing people to race horse ownership through 20-share syndicates that have involved more than 8000 people in racehorse ownership, many of them first time participants.
Some 620 syndicates/partnerships or packages formed by Hancox Bloodstock have races more than 460 individual winners.
The company has a reputation for purchasing inexpensive youngsters that succeed on the track, the notable Hancox-syndicated winners including stakes winners Sword (G1 Goodwood Hcp), Star Cossack, Buzzoff, Make A Scene. Super Dane, Regulations, Kalaring, Tayarra and Pral D'Or and multi i city winning stakes performers Pentirely, Burning Clay, Sports Circuit and Purist.
Hancox said the decision to form a Racing Club will fill a void in Victorian ownership.
“There is not one in Victoria at the moment and I think there is a need for a well run Racing Club with the interests of the share holders at heart," she said.
“A public float like this has given us the capital and flexibility to buy some early running types with the scope to train on at three and four years of age."
The 800 share holders will race five horses for a three year period with the proviso that horses can be raced on after that period should their form warrant it.
The horses comprise four rising 2YO’s that are eligible for the $500,000 Inglis 2YO Premier in 2006.
They will also be nominated for the Blue Diamond and Golden Slipper Stakes.
The fifth member of the team is a rising 3YO filly ready to start work.
"The five horses have been placed with five different trainers to widen the experience owners as they follow the fortunes of the team," Hancox said.
The trainers selected to train for the Hanxoc Racing Club are Allan Denham at Rosehill, Canberra's Barbara Joseph and the Victorian trio of Matthew Ellerton, Andrew Noblet and Greg Eurell.
Denham will train the rising 3YO filly by the stable's former G1 star Filante from Edna Valley, a three-time winning sister to Great Condor, and Joseph will take a filly by outstanding sire Belong To Me from Sword's unraced Snippets half sister Foil.
The three Victorian-based 2YO are all colts and SUPER VOBIS qualified.
Matthew Ellerton has Al Mansour's close relation by sire sensation Encosta de Lago from the Quest For Fame mare See Me Now.
Greg Eurell has the colt by the highly rated Fasliyev from the brilliant Rory’s Jester mare Torry's Jester, producer of four multiple winners from her first four foals to race.
Andrew Noblet has the colt by first season sire King Cugat from the winning Century mare Hurry Up Dear, dam of stakeswinners Ebony Night and Hurry Upel.
“We expect Hancox Racing No.1 Ltd will provide a lot of people with a lot of fun and some money back at the end of the day," said Rod Peacock.

As one of BTM''s shareholders I can assure you she was part of the Hancoxracing no 1 syndicate. She was trained by Barb and she won 400+ in prizemoney for us and sold for 525 at the easter broodmare sale. Gai trained her briefly winning the silk stocking a few weeks after purchase, her last win .She raced briefly last spring without result and went to stud.
We made a bit of a profit on the syndicate despite none of the others being any good.
I also had several big (by my standard) wins on the punt. She was 20/1 plus for her 2 biggest wins, I only had 6 larger bets on her for 4 wins 3 of them at double figure odds.
She gave us great thrills which was the point of the investment. I compare it to buying a football club membership. Making a profit was a bonus. ”

I do believe you are wrong Jarrad! Barbarah Joseph was her trainer in Canberra not the south coast of NSW, and it even lists her breeding above. Belong to me x Foil. Which is Belong to many. ”

Pretty sure thats wrong greatguns..! Belong to many was trained on the south coast of new south wales .. The trainers name has slipped me but she wasnt part of this syndicate.. Read the story properly it makes no mention of a 5 yr old mare.. ”

i think belong to many was in this sydnicate and it sold for half a mill at the broodmare sales. Plus her prizemoney of over 500k, id say thats a yes.
Plus they can say they were a part owner in a grp 2 winner ”

Unless you have plenty of spare folding,trying to get a good horse is like trying to win lotto.
If you are in it for profit don''t do it,but it will sure give you plenty of entertainment.
It you happen to get a good one or two amongst the five,it''s a bonus.
Once the shares are sold,the syndicators have already made profit.They don''t do it out of the goodness of their heart.
Good on them,as it can introduce horse ownership to people who otherwise couldn''t afford it. ”

So the 5 horses need to win $712K between them over the 3 years for each of the 800 people to break even. Sounds easy! ”
