Registration of Syndicates

The registration of syndicates and syndication of horses by registered promoters is managed by the Principal Racing Authority in each state of Australia. A racehorse may be raced by either a natural person/s or a syndicate, or a combination of a syndicate and natural person/s. There are various types of syndicates -

  • A Company, which under the Australian Rules of Racing means a company incorporated or registered under any Act or Ordinance of any State or Territory of the Commonwealth of Australia whilst it remains so incorporated or registered.
