A grand-daughter of Mick Easterby, she has taken over as named trainer of the family pointers this season from her mother Cherry. Samantha has long played an active part in the Coward operation, having been involved in hundreds of winners – highlights include a Cheltenham Foxhunters win with Amicelli and helping guide sister Jacqueline to the ladies championship. She has already enjoyed success this season with the likes of Ballydonagh Boy, who runs for the Richard Morris Racing Club, and it is in this syndicate that Samantha is offering a share for next season.

Kelly’s prize will be a share in the KM Racing club with Shentri, a 7yo gelding who recently won impressively on his yard debut at Higham and looks like an exciting prospect for next season, who will start in points before going Hunter Chasing. With the KM Racing Club, you receive weekly WhatsApp gallops/schooling updates, along with mornings on the gallops watching the horses work and a chance to win tickets when he is racing. At the races, Kelly provides a big picnic, with the chance to meet the team at KM Racing and other club members. There’s always a lot of laughter and fun and a friendly, laid-back atmosphere.
Station Yard Racing
Stone Cottage, Warwick Rd, Ettington CV37 7PN
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.
Pant Wilkin Stables, Cowbridge CF71 7GX
Tim rode over 100 winners between the flags and was Champion Welsh point-to-point jockey, before turning his attentions to training under rules and becoming the youngest National Hunt trainer to record 100 winners in a season. Highlights include Grade 1 winners in the UK and Ireland and a Scottish Grand National win. With eldest son Ed now riding successfully in points, Tim has turned his attention back to the amateur sport and is offering one lucky winner the chance to experience the thrill of being a point-to-point owner with him – offering yard visits, social media updates and being part of the team on raceday.
Holcombe Brook, Holcombe Lane, Ottery Saint Mary EX11 1PH
Edward Walker, based near Ottery St Mary in Devon, has shares available in partnerships, syndicates ("The Otter Club") or sole ownership. He frequently has young horses for sale, or syndicates where the horses are provided, and you just pay part of the training fees. Ed's yard is next door to the national hunt yard run by his wife, Polly Gundry – a former multiple champion jockey between the flags. They offer yard visits to watch horses work and school, regular updates on their progress, and fun days out racing, predominantly on the South West point-to-point circuit.
