The Auckland Trotting Club is currently forming its 14th Syndicate, the Auckland Trotting Club 2013 Syndicate.
Some of our very impressive statistics to date are:-
From our first 12 Syndicates (3YO & older) we have…
* 30 winners from 34 race starters (88% winners-to-starters) for 169 wins & 260 placings and over $5,368,856 in stake earnings & bonuses to date.
* Seven of our horses have won over $100,000 & one earned $2,426,765.
* We have achieved 36 Group & Listed race wins and 39 placings (14 wins & 14 placings at the elite Group 1 level).
* ATC Syndicates have spent $1,133,500 at the Yearling Sales to date.
* ATC Syndicates have turned over more than $11,000,000 in the industry.
We have involved more than 550 people directly in Standardbred ownership.
If you had been a member of all 13 ATC Syndicates to date (with 3 juveniles still to race), you would have achieved over 600% return.
All current syndicate horses show real potential and each of our last three syndicates is looking forward to further promising results in the near future. In fact a 2-year-old from last year’s Syndicate, Major Star, has just qualified to race, going 5.9 seconds under the required time and winning his trial untested by 12 lengths – he certainly shows a huge amount of promise and will make his race debut next month.
He is held in such high regard by his trainer Brent Mangos and Hayden Cullen that he is being targeted at the rich Vicbred and Australasian Breeders Crown series, in Australia in June/July/August.
There are many advantages involved with being part of one of the Auckland Trotting Club Syndicates. These include; the comparatively low costs, the opportunity to share in the ownership of well bred horses trained by the best trainers in the Auckland area, making new friendships with like-minded people, having total involvement in the Harness Racing industry and having the opportunity to participate in social events and travel throughout the year.
Every month, syndicate members receive a detailed newsletter documenting each horse’s progress, member news, and other information. Regular updates are placed on a phone-in message service, which can be accessed at anytime from anywhere in New Zealand free of charge.
We have already had syndicate members from a wide geographical location around New Zealand, from Kaeo and Kaitaia in the North, to Dunedin and Invercargill in the South, as well as from the USA, Canada, England, Japan, Australia (Victoria, NSW, Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australia) and Iceland.
This year the Auckland Trotting Club has once again followed its successful formula by purchasing three further richly bred yearlings for syndication. At this year’s Australasian Classic Yearling Sale the Auckland Trotting Club 2013 Syndicate’s three yearlings were selected by three of the top trainers in New Zealand, Gareth Dixon, Steven Reid, and Geoff Small.
Gareth Dixon selected Take Charge (colt by- Pure Envy), a full-brother to ATC 2010 Syndicate horse Charge Forward (p2, 1:56, 1700m – NZ Record, 7 wins, $82,082) and closely related to Turn The Tide (1:53.4, USA, 23 wins, $860,993, World Champion and USTA 3YO Pacing Filly of the Year).
Steven Reid selected Betty Boop Brogden (filly by Bettor’s Delight - Bonny Brogden), a half-sister to the Australian winner Batali (1:59.8, 1 win $6,300) and closely related to Facta Non Verba (1:56.3, 27 wins, $528,732, including Gr.1 Easter Cup, Gr.1 City Of Auckland ffa).
Geoff Small selected Rhubarb Lane (colt by- Gretna’s Girl), a half-brother to 6 winners, including Bachelorette (1:56.3, 10 wins, $187,408, including PGG Wrightson NZ Yearling Sales Aged Hcp Pace, Nevele R Fillies Cons, 2006-07 NZ 4YO Pacing Mare of the Year) and closely related to Likmesiah (1:55.9, 13 wins, $427,964, including Gr.1 NZ Sires Stks 2YO Final, Gr.1 NZ Derby) and Mister Presley (1:58.4, 9 wins, $73,090).
The share price of $2,067.52 gives you a 1/50 share in the ownership of the three yearlings and includes scoping of the horses, the first 12 months insurance cover, NZ Yearling Sales Race Series payment, Promoters’ Fees & Costs, etc.
A monthly fee of only $160.00 (less than $37/week) per share covers their training and associated ongoing costs, including syndicate management fees and costs, etc.
As we have an extremely high level of interest in this Syndicate (42 shares already sold) and all previous ATC Syndicates have been oversubscribed, remaining shares in the Auckland Trotting Club 2013 Syndicate will be allocated on a strict first-come basis. Our last formed Auckland Trotting Club 2012 Syndicate sold in very fast time, so don’t delay, contact the Syndicate Manager, Rob Carr on firstname.lastname@example.org, 021-227-6444, or 0800 378 278 now to be part of this exciting venture.
If you prefer, you can go directly to our website to view all the details through this link.

We are very pleased with the yearlings that have been selected by Gareth Dixon, Steven Reid and Geoff Small and all are currently being broken-in with very positive reports. We look forward to this Syndicate continuing on the hugely successful path of previous ATC Syndicates.
As there are only 8 shares remaining, you had better be quick.
