Shamrock Thoroughbreds are offering an opportunity to share in the fun and enjoyment of racehorse ownership through the syndication of
Dream Today.

Dream Today is a 3 time winner over 6 and 7 furlongs on the turf and has earned more than £230,000 in prizemoney to date. He is a previous Dubai carnival winner and is currently rated 90 and remains on a very winnable mark considering his previous highest rating of 107.

He is a horse that trainer Ado McGuinness believes there is a lot of fun to be had with next season and the plan is to run in all the valuable sprint handicaps in Ireland and the UK.

“He is just the type that Ado McGuinness excels with and I have no doubt there is a big handicap to be won with him next year. He is an imposing physical with plenty of size and strength, a typical sprinter”, Stephen Thorne, Managing Director of Shamrock Thoroughbreds.


The main reason for purchasing a share in Dream Today is to become involved with a horse that can compete in all the premier sprint handicaps next year.

Ado McGuinness is one of Irelands’ leading racehorse trainers and his record winning big handicaps is second to none.


The syndicate will be divided into 20 shares of 5% each and each shareholder can buy as many shares up to a maximum of 30% or 6 shares. Dream Today will race under the name of Shamrock Thoroughbreds and will be put into training with Ado McGuinness in Lusk, Co. Dublin. A WhatsApp Group will be setup to enhance communication purposes between the syndicate manager Stephen Thorne and each of the 20 shareholders.


The plan with Dream Today will be to give him a winter break before being put into training in January in preparation for the 2021 turf season. He will be campaigned with a big handicap in mind such as the Scurry, Stewards’ Cup and Bold Lad premier sprint handicaps.


The cost of purchase for each 5% share is £2,825 pounds sterling. This includes the sales purchase price, sales commission, buyer commission, VAT and transport to Ado McGuinness Racing.

The total training fees, veterinary fees, insurance and HRI account funds for a 5% share until the 1st October 2021 is €1,350 euros and those costs are listed below.

Each shareholder will receive a statement of accounts at the end of the 12-month term and any prizemoney earned will be divided among each shareholder at the end of the term, the 30th September 2021.

There will be a Shareholder’s discussion in early September 2021 to decide if the horse is sold via public auction or put back into training for another 6 or 12-month period.
