Horse Racing Partnerships

This is your chance to join in the fabulous success of the Kingsley Park partnerships to date, and to enjoy all the benefits of being an owner at a fraction of the cost of sole ownership. In the past few years the partnerships have enjoyed high profile successes: Dual Group 3 winner Rose of Kildare is a exciting prospect for next year, Dark Vision won the Group 2 Vintage Stakes at Goodwood before being sold to Godolphin; Victory Command offered the partners a chance to go racing in Dubai; and Poet’s Society’s memorable win at York was the victory which sealed Mark’s record as Britain’s winningmost trainer of all time.

We are delighted to confirm the launch of five new Kingsley Park partnerships, designed, as ever, to afford our supporters the chance to become involved in all the thrills of owning and racing racehorses at a fraction of the cost of sole ownership. 

The Kingsley Park partnerships have a track record both of achieving success on the racecourse for our partners and in offering those who invest in shares excellent value for money. And, crucially, partners of the Kingsley Park partnerships benefit from the fact that all such partnerships are underwritten by Johnston Racing, and that partners will never be asked to contribute any more than the sum to which they agreed at the outset of the partnership.


KINGSLEY PARK 15  – Full  


KINGSLEY PARK 16

The horses allocated to KP 16 are three colts. The first, a May 10 foal, is by Amaron, a Group 1-winning son of Shamardal, out of the Sholokhov mare, Noble Lady, purchased at the BBAG Yearling Sale in Germany.
Amaron chalked up eight Group wins in France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland and his Group 1 win came in Italy’s Premio Vittorio di Capua over a mile.
Noble Lady has produced two winners in the paddocks, Noble House (by Lando) and Niyama (by Tertullian), both of which won in Germany and were Group-placed. This colt’s second dam, Noble Pearl, won the Group 1 Gran Criterium in Milan.
The other colts in KP 16 were purchased as part of Book 2 of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale. One is a bay colt, foaled on May 2, by Free Eagle out of the Big Shuffle mare, Agnetha.
The first crop of the Prince of Wales’s Stakes (Group 1) winner, Free Eagle, were juveniles this year. The son of High Chaparral enjoyed a Listed success through Justifier, who won the Caravaggio Stakes at Tipperary in August, and Flylikeaneagle has won twice at Beverley.
The dam Agnetha won Group 3 and Listed sprint events and has produced no fewer than nine winners in the paddocks. These include the dual Grade 3 winner, Starstruck (by Galileo) and Sea Swift (by High Chaparral), a dual winner in Ireland who was twice Listed-placed.
The other colt in the KP 16 line-up is a bay, foaled on April 2, by Toronado out of the Southern Halo mare, Mambo Halo.
The Sussex Stakes and Queen Anne Stakes winner Toronado has done well with his first juveniles this year, with four Listed winners to his credit. At Kingsley Park, Mrs Bouquet has won four races for him, including a valuable win in a fillies’ conditions event at the Qatar Goodwood Festival.
Mambo Halo raced in Argentina, where she won as a juvenile. Her five winners to date include the Listed juvenile winner, Earl of Leitrim, and the trio of ex-Kingsley Park favourites, Mambo Paradise, Mambo Dancer and Mambo Rhythm. Between them, those three won nine races for the yard – three of them, by Mambo Dancer, for Kingsley Park 9 in 2018.

Financial commitment from prospective partners: The partnership consists of 20 shares in three yearlings who have been purchased to race for the partnerships in 2020/21, and which will then be sold at the Autumn Horses-in-Training Sales in October 2021.
A share can be acquired by either a single payment of £7,875 or by paying a deposit of £3,500 up front, followed by six equal monthly instalments of £812.50. For each of the three horses taken into training for the second year of the partnership, a further payment of £1,700 (or 12 monthly instalments of £150) will be required in November 2020.
Johnston Racing underwrites each partnership so that partners will never be asked to make any payment beyond their original commitment.

KINGSLEY PARK 17

Two colts and one filly make up the KP 17 team. At Osarus Yearling Sales at La Teste in September, Mark acquired a grey colt, foaled on January 26, by Kendargent out of the Alzao mare, Lady’s Secret.

A Group 1-placed miler in France as a three-year-old, Kendargent has proved an excellent source of speedy juveniles and sprinters, but this year has been represented in Britain by Morando, winner of both the Ormonde Stakes and the Cumberland Lodge Stakes, Group 3 events between 12 and 14 furlongs.

Lady’s Secret won over a mile and a half at Brighton as a three-year-old, progressing to be placed second in the Lancashire Oaks and third in the Irish Oaks. Her five winners to date include Glacial Age and Lady Kashaan, a prolific winning stayer some years ago.

At Book 2 of Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Mark acquired a bay colt, foaled on April 26, by Iffraaj out of the Doyen mare, Peacoat.

The sire of Ribchester, Jungle Cat, Rizeena, Wootton Bassett and Chriselliam, to name but a few of his Group 1 winners, Iffraaj was a seven-furlong specialist who won three Group 2 races at that distance.

The dam Peacoat, a half-sister to the multiple Group winner Criticism, raced in France for Andre Fabre. She won a conditions event at Chantilly and the Listed Prix Melisandre (Grand Prix de Fontainebleau), both over a mile and a quarter, from just four starts.

The KP 17 team is completed by another purchase at Book 2, a chestnut filly, foaled on May 14, by Gleneagles out of the Shirocco mare, Capichera.

The first crop of Gleneagles, whose Group 1 wins included the English and Irish 2,000 Guineas and the St James’s Palace Stakes, were juveniles this year and performed with credit. Royal Dornoch and Royal Lytham both won at Group 2 level, and Southern Hills won the Listed Windsor Castle Stakes at Royal Ascot.

Capichera raced in Germany, where she won a race and was placed once. She is a half-sister to the prolific Calrissian, a Swedish Group 3 and German Listed race winner. In the paddocks, she has produced one winner in Germany, Catan, by Oasis Dream.

Financial commitment from prospective partners: The partnership consists of 20 shares in three yearlings who have been purchased to race for the partnerships in 2020/21, and which will then be sold at the Autumn Horses-in-Training Sales in October 2021.

A share can be acquired by either a single payment of £7,875 or by paying a deposit of £3,500 up front, followed by six equal monthly instalments of £812.50. For each of the three horses taken into training for the second year of the partnership, a further payment of £1,700 (or 12 monthly instalments of £150) will be required in November 2020.
Johnston Racing underwrites each partnership so that partners will never be asked to make any payment beyond their original commitment.

KINGSLEY PARK 18

This partnership consists of three colts acquired at three different sales. At Osarus, Mark purchased a bay colt, foaled on March 3, by Showcasing out of the Kendargent mare, Ultradargent.

On the racecourse, Showcasing’s best moment came at York, when he landed the Gimcrack Stakes. He has proved a huge success at stud, producing speedy horses such as the Group 1 winners Advertise and Quiet Reflection, and the promising Group 2 winner Tropbeau.

Ultradargent won as a juvenile in France, landing a conditions event at Deauville over seven and a half furlongs. She also finished fourth in the Prix Volterra, a Listed event at Chantilly. Her only foal to date, Disruptor, by Siyouni, has yet to win.

The second colt was bought at Tattersalls Ireland September Yearling Sale by Charlie Johnston. This is a bay colt, foaled on April 25, by Bobby’s Kitten out of the Teofilo mare, Heading North.

Bobby’s Kitten, a son of Kitten’s Joy and the only three-year-old ever to have won the Grade 1 Breeders’ Cup Turf Sprint,is now standing at Lanwades Stud in Newmarket. His first crop are now yearlings.

Heading North won a seven-furlong maiden at Chepstow as a juvenile. She was placed seven times, her best effort coming when second in the Listed Height of Fashion Stakes at Goodwood. In the paddocks, she has produced Shorter Skirt, by Showcasing, twice a winner in 2019, and Northern Hope, by Equiano, placed second twice out of four runs this year.
Completing the line-up for KP 18, is a colt purchased at Goffs Sportsman’s Sale, who is an own brother to Dessertoflife. This is a chestnut colt, foaled on April 22, by Mastercraftsman out of the Spectrum mare, Cranky Spanky.
Mastercraftsman, a Champion European juvenile and four-time Group 1 winner, has a fantastic record at stud. The Grey Gatsby, Alpha Centauri and Kingston Hill are just some of his winners at the top level, with Technician joining that club in the Prix Royal-Oak last month.

Cranky Spanky won the Listed Premio Royal Mares at San Siro in Italy. In the paddocks she has produced Potenza (by Born To Sea), the winner of two, mile handicaps this June at Newmarket and Leicester, and Dessertoflife (by Mastercraftsman), who landed the Group 3 Baden-Badener Zukunftsrennen and finished second in two domestic Listed events for owners TT Bloodstocks and the yard in 2015.

Financial commitment from prospective partners: The partnership consists of 20 shares in three yearlings who have been purchased to race for the partnerships in 2020/21, and which will then be sold at the Autumn Horses-in-Training Sales in October 2021.

A share can be acquired by either a single payment of £7,875 or by paying a deposit of £3,500 up front, followed by six equal monthly instalments of £812.50. For each of the three horses taken into training for the second year of the partnership, a further payment of £1,700 (or 12 monthly instalments of £150) will be required in November 2020.
Johnston Racing underwrites each partnership so that partners will never be asked to make any payment beyond their original commitment.


KINGSLEY PARK 19 – Ready To Run

Kingsley Park 19 – Ready To Run has been set up to run two horses, Royal Big Night and Robert Guiscard, from November 1, 2019 to the end of November 2020.

The partnership will consist of 20 shares, each of which is available to purchase either for a one-off payment of £5,250, or alternatively by paying a deposit of £2,750, followed by six, monthly instalments of £500. The partnership will be run on the usual lines and, crucially, as ever will be underwritten by Johnston Racing. No partner will be asked to contribute any more than their original payment.

At Tattersalls Autumn Horses-in-Training Sale, Mark acquired the two partnership horses, and as they have already been trained at Kingsley Park he knows their capabilities and potential well.

Robert Guiscard, an Exceed and Excel gelding, has run five times this year as a juvenile, being placed twice. Running over seven furlongs for the first time at Thirsk in September, he made a bold bid to make all the running in a novice event and went down by just a length. Last time out, at Yarmouth on October 14, in heavy conditions, and despite stumbling, he finished third, beaten by a length and a half.

His dam, Beneventa, by Most Welcome, won the Group 3 Dahlia Stakes and Listed Aphrodite Stakes and Snowdrop Stakes. She has produced five winners, including Bow Creek (by Shamardal), whom Mark trained to win two Group 2 races and who now stands at the Hars du Logis in France.

Royal Big Night has been in training at Kingsley Park for the past two seasons. In seven juvenile runs in 2018, the Distorted Humor gelding won a seven-furlong novice event at Epsom, and was placed on three other occasions. This season, he returned to the racecourse on October 9, finishing third in a 10-furlong handicap, and last time out he finished fourth of 10 in a Windsor handicap on heavy ground.

His dam, the Tapit mare Tamboz, herself a full sister of the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile winner, Tapizar, was a juvenile winner in the United States and has produced five winners from her six runners to date, including Oceanwave, three times Group-placed in the US.

These look like an exciting pair of horses with the potential to give partners lots of fun in following their fortunes over the next 12 months.Further information: The KP partnerships Secretary, Claire Short, can be contacted at partners@johnston.racing
