PRO was founded and is currently managed by Connor Heaps, who having always been a big racing enthusiast, felt there was an opportunity for affordable racehorse ownership within the industry. Using the very good contacts he already had and his experience within racing, PRO has flourished and is one of the fastest growing syndicates around.
It was created as we felt there was a gap in the market for affordable racehorse ownership that people simply weren’t aware of. I’m sure when you ask most people, they would immediately assume that you have to be very wealthy to own a racehorse and it quite simply isn’t the case! We had the means to help people get involved and offer some fantastic opportunities for the everyday man or woman to take their enjoyment a step further. Joining a racing syndicate can be quite a daunting experience, especially among some of the ‘high end’ options in the market. Our main aim is simple; to offer affordable, friendly and honest racehorse ownership, whilst hopefully gaining some enjoyable success on the racecourse. We offer a much more personal experience with Connor being the main contact and he is always on hand to help with any questions or queries. We made PRO this way so that every owner feels like a member of the team and that they all contribute to help get their horse to the track. The name ‘Personal Racehorse Owners’ to us, sums up exactly what we are all about and there’s a real buzz about the team atmosphere we’ve created amongst everyone involved. We are quickly getting a name within the industry and our club colours really stand out on race days. We have gained the attention of At The Races & Racing UK on numerous occasions, with our big groups of owners sporting club ties, scarfs, badges and various PRO merchandise.
How did PRO start?
PRO started when a few avid horse racing enthusiasts decided to enquire about becoming racehorse owners. At the time, they were sure that something as high profile as this was totally out of their price range. How wrong they were! After enquiring, they were pleasantly surprised to find out how worthwhile investing would be, without the high cost they imagined. They realised that becoming an Owner was far from high expense they had envisaged at it also came to their attention that a large population of people weren't aware of this amazing opportunity either! So, as a result, 'PRO' formed with their primary aim being to spread the word to all racing enthusiasts and help to get them involved in their personal syndication program; a premium experience, at a low cost.
PRO Days Out
We encourage all of our owners to come along and watch their horse race, for us it is a major part of racehorse owning and a great experience for all involved. You'll get to enjoy the luxuries of the Owners and Trainers suites and bars as well as all of the other priority access you will receive. Such as seeing the preparation of the horse before the race, getting access to the parade ring to speak directly with the Jockey and Trainer. You'll get to discuss things like the plan for the race and how we feel the race will develop, also get all of the information straight from the horse’s mouth (well almost). Also if your horse is lucky enough to win then you'll get to be in the winner’s enclosure getting your picture taken with the well-deserved winner!
