Like you, we always loved the excitement of race day—but we also enjoy the thrill of seeing our own horses thunder down the home straight.

Which is why we wanted to create a horse racing experience that ‘opened the gates’ to the sport, giving more people access to the benefits of thoroughbred ownership while transforming their experience into one that is engaging, social and educational.

We created Stride Racing Club to offer much more than a syndicate. It keeps connection and community at the centre of the sport, giving members opportunities to go behind-the-scenes, follow a horse's journey through their racing career and beyond, connect with those involved in their care and share some banter with friends (new and old) who share a mutual passion for racing.

We're making racing affordable, accessible and enjoyable

barriers

We're lowering the barriers to get you involved

Racing a thoroughbred usually involves parting with a decent chunk of the folding stuff! We wanted to change that. We’ve designed a membership that allows you to pay only $59 a month to race three quality thoroughbreds from the paddocks of New Zealand's top performing stud farms. Being involved couldn't be any easier.

We’re all about the experience

Stride Racing Club is about a racing experience that will make you feel connected to your horses, engaged with their lives in the stables and on the track, and close to the dedicated team who love and look after your horses. As part of the team you will have access to preferential free or discounted tickets to all Stride Racing Club events (including behind-the-scenes tours at your trainers’ stables and our stud farm partners and on-track experiences) that will breathe new life into the sport of horse racing. There is no better racing experience than being involved with Stride Racing Club.

community

We're building an open community

Like horses, us humans are social creatures. It was important to us to create an inclusive community where anyone with a love for horses and the sport would feel welcome, where the experience of thoroughbred racing extended beyond a day at the races. With events, tours and our StrideLive experiences, we offer a fun and engaging way to enjoy the social side of racing and beyond. Making new friends, developing new business networks or simply spinning a yarn with like-minded people.

We’re strengthening your connection with the horse

Horse welfare is incredibly important to us and is a value shared by all Stride Racing Club members. You’ll follow the journey of your race horse - before, during and after their racing career - giving you greater insight into the sport and strengthening your connection, appreciation and knowledge of your stable of horses.
