Company Size

Harry Herbert is the man behind the Highclere ownership syndicate, which for 22 years has been marrying quality flat racehorses with people with money. But it is distinct from the overwhelmingly rich who tend to dominate the racing world. He is the second son of the Queen’s late racing manager, the seventh Earl of Carnarvon. In 1992 after ten years of industry experience, Herbert started Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Limited. As managers of the Royal Ascot Racing Club’s horses, Highclere was responsible for 2005 Vodafone Derby winner, Motivator. Herbert works closely with his brother-in-law John Warren, the Queen’s racing adviser, buying yearlings, as well as in many other areas of the industry.
