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 National Hunt and Flat horses in training with top-class trainers across Ireland and the UK.

Pimlico Racing syndicates were launched in 2019, focusing on acquiring 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 first big success in March 2021, with Zoffany Bay landing a €100,000 Listed contest at Auteuil.

We hit the ground running with multiple winners in Ireland and we have a burgeoning and talented team to look forward to on the racecourse in 2024.

Our National Hunt horses in Ireland for 2024 are Mystic Sage, Pastorale and Zurich (Henry de Bromhead), Ninth Titan and North Moon (Willie Mullins), Amina and Innatendue (John McConnell) and I Am Mimi (Gavin Cromwell).

In the UK, our National Hunt horses are CollanisiStardhem (Ben Pauling) and Mourzouk (Tim Vaughan).  On the flat, we have recent winner Chindwin (James Owen) and our unraced New Bay two year old, Antonin Dvorak (Karl Burke).

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.

Nathaniel Barnett has been a leading syndicate and racing club manager since 2008, with over 150 winners in that time.

Nathaniel has a wealth of experience in the industry, having worked as a form advisor for a leading flat trainer, as researcher for racing presenter Clare Balding and as assistant trainer to Tim Vaughan, prior to setting up a bloodstock agency in 2013, which he continues to run.  He has bought the winners of over 300 races to date, including 2022 Coral Gold Cup (Hennessy) winner Le Milos.

Nathaniel’s experience both in managing syndicates and in the racing industry as a whole is a great asset to new venture Pimlico Racing, and he is always just a phone call/email away.

Though an accountant by trade, Tom has always had an affinity with horses and before embarking on his current career, he was based as a work rider in the UK for a couple of seasons in 2012/13 working for Tim Vaughan.  He also trained a winner himself between the flags in Ireland!
