Crowd Racing launch the London Knight Crowd with the aim of training racehorses to run at prestigious events


An exciting racehorse ownership opportunity has been launched in London with the aim of training horses to compete in prestigious races at Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood.

The Crowd Racing London Knight Crowd will provide members with exclusive ownership opportunities including stable visits, a share of prize money earned by the horses, social events in the city, and the opportunity to access owners’ and trainers’ facilities when the horses are in action.

William Knight is the Crowd’s trainer and will work alongside his brother Richard, who will use his considerable expertise to source the best racehorses.

Craig McKenna, Managing Partner at Crowd Racing, said: “We are delighted to launch this Crowd in partnership with the Knight brothers. Their records speak for themselves with William training over 270 winners and Richard responsible for the purchase of Group 1 winners The Wow Signal and Garswood.

“Owning a racehorse can be one of the most exciting pastimes, providing the feeling of being at close quarters with horses, experiencing the highs and lows of race days, behind the scenes activity usually out of reach, and becoming an integral part of the team.”

The beauty of purchasing horses to be aimed at the likes of Royal Ascot and Glorious Goodwood is that there are a lot of opportunities for them in other significant races while on the journey.

Top class racecourses including Newbury, Sandown Park, Kempton Park and York all host races that would be perfect for the London Knight Crowd horses.

As well as closely following the progress of their horses, members of the Crowd will be invited to bi-monthly exclusive events in London featuring special guest speakers from the racing world.

William Knight said: “Richard and I have worked in the sport for several years and are looking forward to working with Crowd Racing to provide our owners with entertaining and engaging experiences.

“The Crowd will allow members to develop friendships with likeminded people and achieving success in a shared ownership is one of the most rewarding feelings in horse racing.”
