Harry Herbert is the man behind the Highclere ownership syndicate, which for the past 22 years has been marrying quality flat racehorses with people with money. But it is distinct from the overwhelmingly rich who tend to dominate racing.
Herbert is the second son of the Queen’s late racing manager, the seventh Earl of Carnarvon. In ‘92, after 10 years of experience within the industry, he founded Highclere Thoroughbred Racing Limited.
As manager for the Royal Ascot Racing Club’s horses, Highclere was responsible for the 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.
