At Arlary House we have many ownership options available; sole ownership, clubs and our popular home run partnerships. We can guide you through horse purchase, ownership set up, registration and VAT registration.
Purchasing your horse is one of the most important parts of ownership and we approach the choice and acquisition of the horse in a professional holistic manner. Bringing together the judgement of those at the top of their trade we use a form man, Paul McIvor, to judge the form of horses in training, our equine vets to be sure that the horse is fit for purpose, and our own eye for the horse. There is no hiding place as we have to stand by our judgement and train the horse selected so we must source the best that we can.
We often have horses immediately available for inspection and sale, see the For Sale page. We also love buying to order and sourcing quality horses who have the scope and ability to win races. We purchase both privately and at sales in the UK, Ireland, and France.
We have an especially strong record with store and horses with point to point form; examples include Grade One winners Ahoy Senor and Brindisi Breeze and black type horses One For Arthur (Aintree Grand National), Corach Rambler, Big River, Haute Esteem, Tap Night, Strong Resolve, Kingswell Theatre, and Kerry Lads.
We enjoy running our partnerships which give part owners the thrill of racing and being part of a friendly and professionally run partnership. We also have a most popular racing club connected to the yard, Tay Valley Chasers which offers friendly ownership at a budget price.
We are regulars on the Irish point to point circuit and have an excellent contact in Ireland watching the form and performances in the point to points and on the schooling grounds.
Our agent, Paul McIvor is a huge asset to the yard; he chooses horses exclusively for us and is on top of the form in Britain, Ireland and France both on the flat and over jumps. He is invested in finding us the best to give our owners success at all levels.
Owners are welcome to accompany us to Ireland and France to view a selection of horses for sale, and to attend point to points and race meetings.
For 2022/23 our training fees for full training are £51.50 per day, or £2,065 all-inclusive training per month. We offer generous discounts for those with multiple horses. Our transport fees are amongst the lowest at 85p per mile for owners covered by the ’Edinburgh Gin’ yard sponsorship. We have reduced fees for walking, conditioning work, breaking in and out of training horses. Unlimited use of our water treadmill is charged at £85 per month for those in training and recuperating horses under veterinary advice. All fees are subject to VAT but this can be reclaimed under the VAT Scheme.
We would be delighted to welcome you as an owner and to share the excitement of horse racing with you. Please email Lucinda to discuss your requirements, to arrange a visit to the yard and to see our facilities; details on the ’Contact Us’ page.
We attend the major bloodstock sales and can view, assess, vet and purchase horses on behalf of prospective owners. We use our own bloodstock agent, Paul McIvor who only sources horses for us, providing focus and desire to buy the best for the yard and for our owners. If you would like to attend the sales with us to be part of the excitement of acquiring your new horse we can arrange catalogues, hotel accommodation, and sales day advice.
Horses bought at sales and subsequently resold to stay in the yard are free of profit or sales day expenses incurred by us. They are subject to the sales company’s commission, agent’s commission and VAT where applicable. Cost of transport and livery from time of purchase to time of resale will be charged.
