Making Headway Racing is a Scottish based professionally run syndicate set up by father and son David and Michael Taylor. Michael tells us a little about their new venture.
Myself and my father David launched the syndicate in August of 2020 with the first purchase being a well related Cotai Glory yearling filly that we are excited to see out on the track. We have subsequently purchased Spartakos a well handicapped 2yo gelding with plenty of potential.
From starting off being part of racing clubs and travelling the length a breadth of the British Isles visiting yards and racecourses we began to take our interest further. We joined a few syndicates and had some success with a few winners in a variety of horses. In 2019 we came across Katie Scott Racing on Twitter and became involved in two of the horses in the yard. We were impressed by the friendliness and welcoming nature in the yard, also the facilities and setting just outside of Galashiels in the Borders.
We made the decision to start our own syndicate after we felt there was gap in the Scottish market for a new upbeat and affordable syndicate. With our shared experience of being in other syndicates we feel we have a unique insight in what people are looking for as members and will be basing our principles around what we liked and enjoyed in the ownership experience.
Each owner involved with us will be part of a team where the aim is to have competitive horses out racing but also the opportunity to enjoy a sociable day. We will endeavour to make each member’s experience as an owner enjoyable and fulfilling. Photos and videos of the horses will be regularly sent from the yard and will also be on social media platforms. Regular stable visits where both David and I will be in attendance to see your horse and the yard. Our hope is to give a more personal experience to every owner in every horse.
On race days partners will be entitled to owner’s badges to experience the thrill of seeing their horse run, speaking to the jockey and the trainer before and after each race and hopefully experience that winning feeling. For owners that are not able to attend on the day we will record a post-race briefing with either jockey or trainer so you won’t miss out on the news from the day.
If anyone is interested in having a share in a horse with Making Headway Racing they can get in touch with either Michael or David. Details below.
