Thoroughbred Racing Syndicates is an Irish company set up by former professional rugby player Johne Murphy. Johne’s career spanned 10 years, five successful seasons with Leicester Tigers, followed by five more successful seasons with Munster. His love of horse racing was nurtured by the years he spent going racing with his father John.

After retiring, Johne decided to follow his passion and began setting up racing syndicates which have been very successful to date. Over the past three years his syndicates and partnerships have produced seven individual winners (six of them multiple winners) from 12 horses, with 11 of the 12 being placed over the period. Johne is now moving to the next level with Thoroughbred Racing Syndicates, whose goal is to become the leading thoroughbred racing syndicate company in Ireland and attract owners from all over the world.

Thoroughbred Racing Syndicates believes in spreading risk for its members in syndicates with multiple horses. This can reduce the risk and give members an opportunity to have numerous runners throughtout the season.  We will provide our owners with a first-class experience by purchasing high-end bloodstock, providing access to world-class Irish trainers, issuing regular and open communication, as well as having lots of fun and hopefully plenty of winners along the way!

"One of the main advantages of the syndicate model is the ability to spread risk amongst elite horses and the ability to have people who can really get more enjoyment together than individually"
