There is little to beat the thrill and excitement of watching your own horse win a race! This lifestyle experience is not only limited to the very wealthy and the recent exploits of JJ The Jet Plane in Hong Kong show that four friends with R70,000 to spend and some luck and perseverance can take on the world and win! Buying a racehorse does involve some luck and should not be seen as an investment but it is also one of the most rewarding and exciting things to do and even more so with a group of friends. Following your horse’s progress and going to the races is great fun and offers many social benefits. Many people may have dreamt of owning a racehorse but either do not know how to get started or do not have the necessary capital to own a horse independently.
