Station Yard Racing (Francesca and Charlie Poste) run the Picnic Partnership, which has two horses in training on a lease basis for a one-off fee of £800 for the whole season with no hidden extras.
Based on the two horses being in training from September 1st through to the end of May, this works out at less than £3 per day. Over the last two seasons, the syndicate has had eight winners and many more placings. The aim is for the syndicate to have fun, with regular updates and a picnic on every raceday to ensure that – win or lose – everyone has a great day out. This year’s horses will be the ever consistent Champion Chase, a four-time winner and in the frame on all his ten starts and exciting new addition Trevada, a bumper winner under rules and rated 107 over fences. He is eligible to start the season in a Restricted and should be a sure-fire winner who could potentially end up Hunter Chasing in the Spring.
