FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is a racing club and how does it work?

A racing club facilitates the experience of race horse ownership. The racing club owns the racehorse. Members of the club will have no ownership rights but they will enjoy all the excitement of being an owner. Racing clubs have grown in popularity during the pandemic because they offer an enhanced off-course experience giving members unrivalled insight and drama from the safety of their homes. 

Are there any additional maintenance costs for the horse that I’m expected to pay?

No. Members only need to pay £59 membership fee.

What happens to the prize money Mystic Moonshadow gets for winning races?

All of the prize money won by Mystic Moonshadow’s professional racing will be donated to Coffee 4 Craig, a homeless charity in Manchester that has been selected by Bez. You can find out more about this charity at www.coffee4craig.com

How often will I hear updates from Bez's Racing Club?

Members will receive updates about the horse’s development and performance at least once a month via email. Alongside updates of any race fixtures, there will be frequent videos by the trainer allowing members to watch her on the gallops and observe her form.

Members of Bez’s Racing Club will also be encouraged to follow the dedicated BRC social channels for further updates and entertainment. Bez is eager to learn more about all aspects of horseracing, so members can follow Bez’s immersion via daily content.

Will I be able to visit Mystic Moonshadow at the stables?

We will give members the opportunity to enter a prize draw to visit Mystic Moonshadow at her stables in North Yorkshire. We aim to give as many members as possible this exclusive opportunity throughout the year, but this is dependent on COVID restrictions.

Will I gain free entry at the racecourse to watch her race?

Members will be given the opportunity to enter a prize draw to win tickets to watch Mystic Moonshadow from the owner’s enclosure on race days. We aim to give at least 100 members this exclusive opportunity throughout the year, but this is subject to COVID restrictions being lifted and how many races Mystic Moonshadow runs.

We will also be negotiating reduced price race day entry for all members to enable them to go racing each time Mystic Moonshadow runs.
