Is a well bred four year old who we managed to secure for £10,000. For a horse with good Point to Point form this looks a good value buy. Of course there is an element of ‘could be anything’ with a young horse bought from a Point to Point, but at this price there is a considerable ‘upside’ if he performs to the level Ben expects.
Running Plans

Raise Your Shades has only run once and Ben plans to keep him in training until June before giving him a short summer break holiday and then returning for an autumn campaign. He will then have another short break in the middle of winter before coming back for another Spring campaign in 2019. We should therefore get plenty of action over the next year.


There are 20 shares available. The cost of a share, including the capital purchase and all training and racing costs until 30th June is £1,100. At the end of this period syndicate members will receive a Financial Statement to show costs incurred and prizemoney won, with the surplus due to the members. A clear and transparent financial model.

Payment of £1,100 can be made upfront or alternatively £650 can be made upfront to cover the capital and immediate costs with the remaining £450 due in three instalments of £150 on 1st April, 1st May and 1st June.
The Trainer

Ben Pauling

Ben set-up his own yard after spening six years as Assistant Trainer to Nicky Henderson. He has made a great start to his training career, consistently sending out winners.

There have been many highlights so far including Grade 1 successes with Barters Hill in the Challow Hurdle at Newbury and Willoughby Court winning Grade 1 Neptune Investment Novice Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Exciting Opportunity

This looks a really exciting opportunity to be involved in an exciting four year old, bought at a sensible price, who is in training with a talented young trainer.
