Company Size

Chelsea Thoroughbreds are in the business of supplying ‘the dream’ to those who love horse racing as much as they do. The Chelsea-based racehorse ownership club sources the very best horses for flat-racing and manages them in syndicates of ten shareholders each. Shares cost from £7,000 to £12,000, and clients range from first-timers to seasoned owners. ‘It’s not a mass market offering,’ says co-founder Richard Morecombe, a lifelong horse-racing fanatic who has owned ‘a lot of winners’ himself and is in charge of buying for the company (he also happens to run an investment bank). Three years in, they’ve had horses at Glorious Goodwood and Ascot, as well as a triumphant fifth place in the Epsom Derby
