Shamrock Thoroughbreds are offering an opportunity to become involved in the fun and enjoyment of racehorse ownership through the syndication of Pulse of Shanghai.

Pulse of Shanghai has won 5 races in his career between 5f and 7f. He is currently rated 93 on the all-weather and 85 on the turf. He is a good fun horse for the remainder of the all-weather campaign at Dundalk and he is very well handicapped for the upcoming turf season with an attractive rating of 85.

He is a horse that trainer Ado McGuinness believes “There could be a good day in this horse on the turf this season and although he has done a lot of winning on the all-weather, he is a well handicapped horse on the

“He is a good looking horse, a typical sprinter type with a lot strength. He is a very solid handicapper who will compete at all the major flat meetings in 2022 including the Curragh, Leopardstown and Galway. He will give his new shareholders a lot fun this year.”, Stephen Thorne, Managing Director of Shamrock Thoroughbreds”.


The main reason for purchasing a share in Pulse of Shanghai is to get involved with a consistent sprint handicapper who knows how to win and has the ability to win races during the all-weather and turf campaigns in 2022. He is a horse who enjoys good and slow ground and is an ideal fun horse who will compete on a regular basis and give his new shareholders a lot of fun along the way.

Ado McGuinness is a Group 1 winning trainer and is one of Irelands’ leading racehorse trainers. His record with high-class sprinters speaks for itself.


The syndicate will be divided into 10 shares of 10% each and each shareholder can buy as many shares up to a maximum of 30% or 3 shares. Pulse of Shanghai will race under the name of Shamrock Thoroughbreds and will be put into training with Group 1 winning trainer 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 10 shareholders.


The plan with Pulse of Shanghai is to commence full training with him and the plan will be to have a couple of runs on the all-weather at Dundalk in March and April as he is an all-weather specialist. He will then be campaigned in the sprint handicaps between 5f and 7f on the turf during the summer and Autumn months.
