Stable Connect Limited
At Stable Connect we offer a full range of management, consulting and support services to Thoroughbred Racing, Breeding and Stallion Syndicates.
We also focus heavily on supporting investors by ensuring their investment in bloodstock is well managed, protected and fairly treated.
Stable Connect is the holder of an Australian Financial Services Licence (336964) allowing it to undertake the promotion and management of Horse Racing, Breeding and Stallion Syndicates.
Our stated mission is:
“To operate a syndication related business that is renowned as the leader in strong corporate governance, independence, integrity, transparency and professional services in promoting and managing Thoroughbred breeding and racing syndicates in Australia.”
Being a racehorse owner in Australia is no longer limited to the elite and is extremely achievable at all levels of investment. One of the major reasons for this is the large selection of specialised syndicators now found throughout Australia.
Racehorse syndication involves the process of selling shares in a racehorse, such that ownership of the horse is split between multiple owners. Syndicators are making it possible for more people to experience racehorse ownership with many offering as little as 1% shares. Syndicators manage the whole 'behind the scenes' process such as selecting the horse at the sales, managing all the ongoing paperwork, liaising with the trainers and industry professionals and most importantly bringing together likeminded groups of people who want to enjoy the experience of owning a racehorse.
There are very strict rules governing syndication in Australia which helps to protect investors. Before a Syndicator is able to advertise shares for sale in each horse, they must first have a Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and Syndicate Deed approved by the Lead Regulator in the state the horse is to be trained which must then be made available to all prospective purchasers. These documents provide investors with important information to make an informed decision on their investment in owning a racehorse, stallion or broodmare and the future costs involved.
