Here are a few messages from our current members and their thoughts on the service they have received so far at Koo’s Racing Club.
“From the very beginning you feel like a part of the family, all the members are a really nice bunch. The supply of information about your own horses is regular and informative. All of the team involved in running the Club are really approachable, nothing is too much trouble. All-in-all it’s great value for money and a superb way of ‘owning’ a horse.”
“As a great racing enthusiast I was looking for a small share in a racehorse in order to provide me with a little fun, and give me more than just a day out at the races. It has not only provided me with this, but also some prize money to boot! Koo’s Racing Club, from the outset were extremely helpful in helping me buy into a suitable horse to cater for my needs and I was very impressed with the instant recognition I was given as an owner within the stable, even with such a small share! I am contacted frequently in regards to my horse and Koo is one of the most genuine people I have had the pleasure of knowing in the industry. A successful trainer, reliable jockeys and great owners…this has got to be one of the best and most successful new racing clubs in the country and I’m proud to be part of it during these exciting times!”
“I have been interested in racing most of my life having been taken to the races as a kid by my dad. I was looking to increase that interest but could never afford to buy and pay for the upkeep of a horse on my own. So when a friend introduced me to Kristian (Koo) it seemed an ideal opportunity. Kristian took the time to explain how the Club worked and that the fees would be set for the year, also that I could either buy or lease a share of a horse.I looked at the horses on the website and picked ‘My One Weakness’ a 2 year old at the time who had been placed in a couple of races. ‘Weakness’ proved to be a battler and has won twice providing me with a great thrill as a winning owner. The set up of the Club is really friendly so if you are thinking of taking that step into ownership I would recommend you give it a go, it’s been a really good experience.”
“Great experience being involved with Koo’s Racing Club. A dedicated team behind a very capable trainer. Both Kristian and Brian always honest with their views on the horses’ chances and that’s all you can ask for. Very competitively priced and as the results show, I feel you get a lot more value for money than many other racing clubs.”
“Koo’s Racing Club really works. For someone like me who loves horses and horse racing it has everything. Kristian and his team make you feel as if you are an important member of the club. I receive regular updates on all their runners with Kristian’s expert knowledge on how they are likely to run. There are visits to the stables where Brian Ellison makes everyone feel welcome. And above all I feel there is real value for money, it would seem that there is an opportunity to be involved in owning a racehorse for most pockets – though it can be hard to quantify the thrill of seeing your horse win! “
“We have been a member of Koo’s Racing Club since August 2009. We have found the service given by Kristian and Zuzka to be excellent right from the beginning. From the moment we signed up we have been kept very well informed and updated about the horses, racing fixtures etc on a regular basis. We receive regular newsletters and get daily texts about any horses that are running which belong to the club and their capabilities of winning! Unfortunately we were unable to attend the open days that are held at the stables due to work commitments but Kristian arranged for us to have a visit to the stables on a separate occasion which we really enjoyed. It was lovely to see all the horses.”

“I’d been thinking of joining Koo’s Racing Club for a while and finally took a leased share in Dontpaytheferryman in January, knowing he was entered to run at Southwell later in the week. Anyway he won taking the score for the club to three in just a few months, with a horse very difficult to win with. Kristian keeps club members up to date with plans for their horse and sends text messages whenever the club has a runner, saying how he rates the horses’ chance and what would be a fair price. He’s phoned me a couple of times and it seems nothings too much trouble; with owners badges available when your horse runs it really is a great way to start as an owner.”
“As a previous racehorse owner and regular race goer over the last 25yrs I would recommend joining Koo’s Racing Club to anyone looking for more enjoyment in the sport. We have had numerous enjoyable days racing with the club and the stable visits are always enjoyable and informative.”
“I’ve joined Koo’s Racing Club almost a year ago to enjoy the thrill of being involved in racing. Being a racing fan I looked on-line and Koo’s had great testimonials. Since I joined may I say I never thought I would ever be lucky enough to lead in a winner but to my amazement I have on two occasions. My wife and I were invited up to Brian Ellisons’ stables by Kristian and Zuzka and we were made to feel very welcome. We were lucky enough to have tea with Brian and taken upon the gallops where he drove us along as the horses cantered, it was great. We were made to feel very important and all the staff and jockeys were so nice. I can truly say a fantastic day and an amazing club to be in.”
