Gold Edge Syndications

At Gold Edge we aim to make racehorse ownership affordable for all racing enthusiasts. We know the experience is best when shared and there is nothing like a day at the races with good mates.

We offer fixed monthly fees for racing and maintenance of your horse, thus taking the surprises out of your monthly expenses.

Our yearlings are selected using a process that identifies a strong pedigree on the Dam side, matched with an up and coming sire to try and maximise our value for money and likely success on the racetrack. We then let Gary Portelli use his years of experience to select the best and most athletic types for purchase.

If experiencing the thrill of racehorse ownership at an economical entry point, with the certainty of knowing your ongoing monthly commitments sounds like you, then why not give us a call.

Dream it - Share it - Live it



Eales Racing

In 2009, Laurence Eales came to national prominence when his horse, Shocking was the surprise winner of the 2009 Group 1 Emirates Melbourne Cup. While many racegoers may have been aware of his other famous horse, Whobegotyou, Shocking’s Cup win was for many unexpected.

In 2007 Laurence paid a mere $64,000 for Shocking at the Magic Millions National Horses in Training Sale. Two year’s earlier he purchased stablemate Whobegotyou for the canny sum of $19,000. Whobegotyou won two Group 1 races including the 2008 Caulfield Guineas and winnings of over $2.6 million. Melbourne Cup winner Shocking has won a total of 6 races to date with prize winnings totalling over $4.2 million.
