2022 Rowdown Nursery

2022    

by  ex   ( )

Owner:  2022 Rowdown Nursery

The rationale behind the Rowdown Nursery Syndicate is to introduce new bloodstock into the Yard at a competitive price and the 2022 iteration is the third Nursery Syndicate we have run at Rowdown; the 2020 syndicate was extremely successful and the three horses won six races and were placed a further ten times.

For 2022 we have purchased the three yearlings you can see below; all three are by highly successful stallions and are out of viable Mares. Twenty shares in the Nursery are available and each Share costs £3000; this covers all of the yearling's purchase costs and expenses to the 30th November 2022; by December 2022 all three yearlings will be sold either within or outside the Yard and a dividend paid out according to the total price they have achieved and the prizemoney they earn during 2022. Typically the last two Nurseries have produced an approximate dividend of 33%; for 2022 this could be more or less than this return.
