About Us

Pimlico Racing

Over the past decade, Nathaniel Barnett has managed two of the leading racing syndicates in the UK, with winners at racecourses throughout the country and abroad, from Ascot and Cheltenham to Auteuil and Saint-Cloud.

Pimlico Racing has horses in training with leading trainers in the UK, Ireland and France.

Pimlico Racing was launched in 2019, focusing on acquiring inexpensive horses that can take us to the big meetings, both over jumps and on the flat.  Our first three horses to run all won, including two on their first start for us, with all three sourced for £8,000 or less.  We enjoyed our biggest success to date in March 2021, with Zoffany Bay landing a €100,000 Listed contest at Auteuil.

We hit the ground running with three winners in Ireland, with an exciting team to look forward to in 2022/23, while Mourzouk provided us with another couple of winners in the UK when scoring for Tim Vaughan both in April and May 2022.

Our National Hunt horses for 2022 are Alice AvrilBaron WildCoole Arcade, Cottie, Makfils and Mystic Sage (all with Henry de Bromhead), and exciting novice hurdler Mourzouk with Tim Vaughan.

Our Flat representative in 2022 is a lovely unraced two year old, Passing Time, in training with Andrew Balding.

Having started with just one share, my first foray into ownership, I now have an interest in four horses with Pimlico Racing. Nathaniel does a wonderful job keeping us informed and entertaining us on racedays and I am learning more about this fascinating sport with every passing day.
