Reading Time: 2 minutes


Micro-share horse racing syndicate MyRacehorse has brought in two-time Classic-winning Jockey Ted Durcan as its Bloodstock Consultant in the UK and Ireland.

Durcan will partner with MyRacehorse to select horses both at public auction and privately as the company looks to expand its portfolio of horses available for customers to buy on its micro-share platform.

As well as riding winners in two British Classics, Durcan is a seven-time UAE champion jockey with over 25 years of race riding experience, having ridden 1,500 winners all over the world. His major wins include the Haydock Sprint Cup, the Oaks, St Leger and Sun Chariot Stakes.

After retiring from riding in 2018, Durcan started Durcan Bloodstock and has been purchasing horses privately as well as taking part in all the major European auctions for clients throughout Ireland, the UK, and abroad.

MyRacehorse offers racing fans the opportunity to participate in genuine racehorse ownership, starting at just £46.

Founded in the US in 2019, MyRacehorse now has over 50,000 owners, sharing ownership of 110 racehorses across America, Australia, the UK and Ireland including Kentucky Derby and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner Authentic.

Now MyRacehorse is looking to continue to grow its unique model of racehorse ownership in the UK where it already has horses in training with John & Thady Gosden, Joseph O’Brien, George Baker and Michael O’Callaghan.

Discussing his appointment, Durcan said: “I am delighted to have been asked to join MyRacehorse to help the team source some exciting and fun horses for the season ahead.

“MyRacehorse gives everybody the chance to see how this amazing sport works from the inside out rather than the outside in. This is something that normally would not be achievable for most people, but MyRacehorse makes it happen.

“Being involved in racehorse ownership is fun, exciting and social. There are highs and lows but it’s the whole journey that makes this sport special, and it’s important to find new ways to share that journey.”

Kate Hardy, Director of Operations at MyRacehorse, added: “We are thrilled to have Ted working with MyRacehorse as we grow our stable here in Ireland and the UK.

“His extensive knowledge of the sport, and the unique perspective he has as an ex-jockey when it comes to evaluating form and conformation are invaluable to MyRacehorse.

“Ted’s track record and reputation speaks for itself, and we are extremely fortunate to have him join our team.”
