Scampi was RaceShare’s flagbearer in our first year having had a highly productive season in 2023. He began the year with a promising effort at Epsom on his debut for us in April, before registering his first win of the campaign next time out at the prestigious York Dante meeting. This race was a ‘win and you’re in’ qualifier for the £500,000 Ebor in August. This was a memorable day for everyone and Scampi went on to finish second in the £150,000 Old Newton Cup at Haydock and then sixth in the £200,000 John Smith’s Cup at York, both at very high profile Saturday race meetings. In mid-August, Scampi landed his second win of the season at the Shergar Cup running to a Timeform rating of 103, reversing the form with the horse that beat him at Haydock just over a month prior. He has really captured the imagination of the general racing public and the eruption from the crowd when he was called the winner in the photo finish ‘exceeded any heard at this year’s royal meeting’ according to Lee Mottershead of the Racing Post. Scampi has proven the calibre of the RaceShare buying team and their ability to purchase high quality bloodstock. The share price is all inclusive with no monthly costs and an optional renewal payment. You will be able to download and print share certificates and photos of your horse(s) via the login section of the website upon purchasing a share (or receive them by post if choosing a postal welcome pack at checkout).

The plan

Scampi recently returned to training at Kingsclere to prepare for the 2024 Flat season. Scampi will be targeted at a range of major handicaps over 10 to 12 furlongs, many of which could be the same races he contested in 2023. If he is able to have anything like as good a season as he had in 2023, he can only add further to the glorious fun he’s given us all.

  • High quality handicapper, Timeform rated 103
  • Five time winner, with five seconds and five thirds making up half of his 30 racecourse appearances
  • Net prize money earnings of just under £90,000 in 2023
