Introduction and History
The Auckland Trotting Club (Inc.) as an authorised syndicator with the purpose of promoting Harness Racing, has over the last fifteen years formed fourteen syndicates, each comprising either 40 or 50 shares and each racing two, three or four horses. These horses were purchased by the respective selected prominent trainers at the Yearling Sales and have been, or are currently, raced by the various ATC Syndicates.
To date, all fourteen syndicates have proved, or are proving very successful.
From our very first A.T.C Trot Power Syndicate, to the Auckland Trotting Club 2012 Syndicate, we have raced such successful horses as Midknight Rumpus (6 wins, 7 placings, $41,215, winner of the NZ Sires Stakes 3 & 4YO Series Final), Perspicuous (6 wins, 4 placings, $31,453), Parisian Falcon (8 wins, 13 placings, $114,119, winner of the Group 2 Te Awamutu Juvenile Stakes, the Kumeu (twice) and Tauranga Cups), Matai Mackenzie (6 wins, 5 placings, $302,676, winner of the Group 1 NZ 2 Year Old Championship, Group 2 NZ Welcome Stakes, Group 1 NZ Sires Stakes 2YO Final, Group 1 Great Northern Derby, and named 1999/2000 NZ 2 Year Old of the Year), Bing (4 wins, 12 placings, $27,182), Linford Christie (6 wins, 16 placings, $72,732 + $10,430 bonuses, including 2nd placing in a heat of the 2005 InterDominion Series), Thinga Me Bob (7 wins, 16 placing, $68,157 + $6,910 in bonuses), Helena Kilena (4 wins, 2 placings, $29,884 + $9,267.50 in bonuses), Awesome Armbro (19 wins, 24 placings, $648,754 + $18,645 in bonuses), Changeover (29 wins, 16 placings, $2,426,765 + $21,777.50 in bonuses – winner of $1.2m 2008 NZ Cup, named NZ 3YO & 5YO of the Year and now sold to stand at New Zealand’s leading stud farm, Nevele R Stud), Spy (10 wins, 15 placings, $102,431 + $3,027.50 in bonuses), Kobe Bryant (7 wins, 11 placings, $123,700 + $2,687.50 in bonuses), Tintin In America (16 wins, 11 placings, $934,305 + $19,862.50 in bonuses, including five Group 1 wins, the NZ Sires Stakes 2YO Final, the 3 & 4YO Harness Jewels, the Australasian Breeders Crown 3YO C&G Final and the NZ Messenger Championship, setting an incredible 5 NZ Records), The Oyster Bar (3 wins, 12 placings, $27,078 + $1,000 in bonuses), Charge Forward (8 wins, 7 placings, $97,332 + $11,527.50 in bonuses, winner of a NZ Sires Stakes Heat, setting a NZ 2YO Record) and Major Star (2 wins, 3 placings, $29,910 + $5,058 in bonuses, winner of a Vicbred Super Series 2YO Heat in Australia).
All current syndicate horses show real potential and each of our last three syndicates is looking forward to further promising results in the future. In fact all three of the 2-year-olds from last year’s Syndicate have now qualified and look to have promising careers as 3-year-olds when they return to training after their current spells.
Not only do you get to enjoy the thrill of owning and racing harness racehorses, but also to be very involved in Harness Racing, initially at Alexandra Park and the wider Auckland/Waikato area, but quite possibly venturing further afield to Christchurch's Addington Raceway and Melbourne Australia contesting major races as eight of our syndicates have already experienced.
