    Hello to Everyone

    Hello,

    I have come across this forum and I am hoping that all you knowledge people will be able to provide me with advice.

    I consider myself a proficient thoroughbred follower where I am able to do my own research with regards to breeding and ownership opportunities.

    I would now like to become a part owner in a standardbred but unlike the thoroughbred where a simple google search such as "horses available" will bring back many trainers with shares to sell, the same search for Standardbreds brings back little.

    How does one commence a share for a trainer that has horses available and then how do you narrow this do to improve your chances?

    And what are normal monthly costs for say a 10% share?

    All comments welcome.

    Hi,

    I live in NSW but I am okay to have a horse in Victoria.

    Follow the harness racing for a while, for Victoria, if you watch on Trots Vision - you will see trainer interviews sometimes. See what stables/people you like

    https://www.thetrots.com.au/racing/live-trots-vision/

    IMO the sport is weak when it comes to advertising syndicate opportunities

    Here is the link to Find A Trainer from Victoria

    https://www.thetrots.com.au/for-part...ers-directory/

    Here is link to the Vic Trainers Premiership standings

    http://www.harness.org.au/racing/sta...-premierships/

    We are 3 months into the season so you can see from the Stakes column in the trainers chart - there is not a lot of money to be made in harness racing (owners have to expect to lose in fact)

    Here is a link to the NSW Trainers premiership

    https://www.hrnsw.com.au/racing/premierships

    Here is link to the Directory Search to help contact trainers

    http://www.harness.org.au/apps/index.cfm/lhd:main

    There are sites like the following but you don't want a whole horse

    https://harnesstradingring.com.au/li...rses-for-sale/

    https://www.standardbredtrader.com.au/

    There are also stud farms who might point you in the right direction

    Hopefully we will get other posters with suggestions

    Appreciate your insight

    Could I also ask with regards to life after racing does the industry have a rehoming program
