Shared ownership through syndication has become the most popular means for people to race horses these days and the most proven and successful entry level participation has been with the Auckland Trotting Club harness racing syndicates.

They have been hugely successful in the harness racing code, proving over an extended 18-year period, that you can have fun and success at this level.

ATC Syndicates have had 37 individual winners from 43 horses to the races (an amazing 86% winners-to-starters record), for a total of 207 wins and 320 placings and $8,954,163 in stakes, bonuses & sales – truly a phenomenal success story.

The Auckland Trotting Club (Inc.) is an authorised syndicator under the code of practice regulating Standardbred syndication which is administered by Harness Racing New Zealand, so an insurance of impeccable integrity is assured.  You can have confidence in a syndicate that is run by one of the leading players in the Harness Racing industry and with such a history, “the proof is in the pudding”, as they say.

Over the last eighteen years the Auckland Trotting Club has formed sixteen syndicates and involved over 600 people in successfully racing horses.  They have raced such standout horses as CHANGEOVER (29 wins, $2,426,765), TINTIN IN AMERICA (16 wins, $934,305), AWESOME ARMBRO (19 wins, $648,754), IDEAL BELLE (7 wins, $195,266), MAJOR STAR (9 wins, $125,449) and THE FAITHFUL (7 wins, $87,861).

Four ATC Syndicates have grossed over $500,000 and 10 of the ATC Syndicate horses have won over $100,000 each, having won a NZ Cup, 3 Derbies, 2 Sires Stakes Finals, 4 Harness Jewels, 2 Australasian Breeders Crown Finals, a NZ Oaks, an Inter Dominion Championship Series Consolation, etc and have set 10 NZ Records.

Having spent $1,307,500 at the Yearling Sales, the ATC Syndicates have turned over more than $12,923,089 in the industry and figures show that if you had been a member of all 16 ATC Syndicates to date, you would currently be showing a very healthy 480% return, with three 2-year-olds still to commence their racing careers.

Syndicate members have come from all over New Zealand, as well as the USA, Canada, England, Japan, Australia (Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia) and even Iceland.

Advantages of being part of a larger syndicate include; the comparatively low costs, the opportunity to share in the ownership of well bred horses trained by some of the country’s best trainers, making new friendships with like-minded people, total involvement in the Harness Racing industry and the chance to participate in social events and travel throughout the year.

This year the Auckland Trotting Club has once again followed its successful formula by purchasing three richly bred yearlings for syndication.  At this year’s Australasian Classic Yearling Sale the Auckland Trotting Club 2017 Syndicate’s three yearlings were selected by the top trainers Brian Hughes, Steven Reid & Simon McMullan, and John & Josh Dickie.

The yearlings are a Bettor’s Delight / Classic Nymph colt, a Bettor’s Delight / American Sweetheart filly and a Mach Three / Bella Me colt.  All three are currently being broken-in and so far have received very positive reports and are pleasing their respective trainers.

The share price is $2,108.88 (including Sales Series Payments & the first 12 months insurance of each horse) for a 1/50 share in the ownership of the three yearlings and then a monthly fee of only $160.00 (less than $37/week) per share covers all costs.

Involvement in this latest Auckland Trotting Club 2017 Syndicate has huge potential to provide many hours of fun, excitement and entertainment, so if you wish to join or obtain further information, you can contact the Manager, Rob Carr phone (09) 291-9034 or mobile: (021) 227-6444, or email:


Last year’s ATC Syndicate sold out in the quickest time ever – an amazing 10 days and all 50 shares were sold, so you had better get in quick, as there are only 15 shares remaining in this year’s syndicate.
