Testimonials



At Champion Thoroughbreds we aim to provide our owners with a ‘Next Level of Racing’ standard through frequent contact via multiple technological platforms so our owners are never left wondering. We hold track-work mornings and Open Days here at 7A High St Randwick.

One thing we have found is that our owners are incredibly trusting and loyal to our brand. We try to make ownership simple and cost effective. We don't spend money on self promoting flashy TV adverts which will ultimately end up on our owners invoice and we send 1 invoice so owners are not bombarded with additional syndication fees and we encourage full participation in the ownership of the horses.

We welcome drop ins at any stage to see the physical progress your horse has made or to simply have a pat and photo. We would like to give all of our valued owners a big thank you for your flattering comments listed below:



The following people have endorsed Champion Thoroughbreds:

I enjoy a bet and I fought that racehorse ownership too expensive. So I stayed away from it. I was a big fan of Ocean Park and (thankfully) I stumbled across a Ocean Park colt on Champion Thorougbreds website. I liked the type and the pedigree and when I saw the cost I was pleasantly suprised as he was very affordable. I checked his sales purchased price and saw that their was very little mark up (not like some of the other syndicators in the market). To cut a long sorry short I took a share and talked 3 of my friends into taking shares. The communication has been great and he trials very soon with none other than leading jockey James McDonald on his back

I was introduced to the racing industry by Champion Thoroughbreds in March 2018.

It was at that time that I attended the yearling sales at Warwick Farm, to view some yearlings that the Champion staff had identified that met their criteria, and they then went onto bid for to purchase for syndication. I actually had taken a fancy to a So You Think Filly, who by co incidence was the only filly that the team had managed to purchase on the day. We then had the chance to view a batch of yearlings that Champion had purchased, at an open day at Randwick, where the So You Think filly was also available.

I must say, that from the beginning John O Shea was very upfront about how long it would take to get her onto the track, and, his team has managed my expectations to the letter ever since, and they have kept me up to date on her progress at every step of the way.The best thing is that they have always made me feel comfortable and welcome at any time, and they have always responded to my many questions very quickly – making me feel at ease and excited towards Bonita Bella's progression.

A big thank you to Emma, Jason and Neill who keep me up to date and demonstrate the utmost of respect and professionalism toward me. I would say to anyone that is to take a punt and buy a small share in a beautiful animal like a race horse, then I would highly recommend that they contact the team at Champion Thoroughbreds.

As a first time owner I am so pleased in having selected Champion Thoroughbreds who have consistently surpassed all my expectations and provided such an enjoyable experience. The combination of John as the experienced trainer with his authentic style, the analytical brain and passion of Jason together with the exceptional genuine service and support of Emma and Neill in Management and Sales make this a wonderful team.

The regular, honest and open communication and willingness to respond to all queries timely ensure you are always included and well informed.

In my opinion it is this mix of all these skills and the dedication of the team who select, train and care for the horses each day to bring the very best out and of them and give you the best chance of success on the track. Would recommend anyone interested in investing in a race horse to seriously consider Champion Thoroughbreds.

I and a group of friends recently purchased a spot in the Chanpion Thoroughbreds 1 in 5 Cub. We are over the moon with the way it turned out and the way in which we have be included into the Champion Thoroughbreds fold. Right from the get go we have felt part of the team and we not only are delighted with the entire purchase and management process we are very pleased with the horses we are involved in.

To own shares in fillies by I Am Invincible, Press Statement and Sacred Falls, (all from good families) gives us plenty of residual value and the Contributer and Toronado colts certainly look like running animals.

If you want to be involved with the best syndicators in the game, a great trainer and quality horses you really can’t go past Champion Thoroughbreds.
Hylton Bayliss – June 2019


I have raced a number of horses with other syndicators over the years, one of which left a sour taste in mouth. I vowed I would not go down that route again! Then when John O'Shea (who is a super trainer) returned to Randwick I made the decision to purchase a share in an Ocean Park colt that the guys at Champion Thoroughbreds were offering. Right from the get go the team at Champion made me feel part of the family and now I have purchased a share in a very smart Epaulette filly and more importantly they have restored my faith in racehorse syndicators.

I suggest you forget the hard sell TV advertisements, the multiple bills from vets, farriers and trainers and additional syndicators fee and if you are intertested in racing quality horses I recommend you contact the team at Champion Thoroughbreds and take a share in a horse with them you and you'll get great communication and one well priced invoice.

Champion Thorougbreds are the most professional and systematic syndication team we have dealt with. They are prompt in keeping us up to date with our horses progress via both written updates and video and voice messages. We chose to join with Champion Thoroughbreds due to both the horse options they were able to provide and after making initial enquiries they made us feel extremely confident in the service they could provide.

They combine ultimate professionalism with a friendly and approachable manner. We were fortunate to join the team on the race track for a morning training session which proved both extremely enjoyable and informative with John making us feel most welcome and sharing this expertise with us. We have been continually assured that our involvement at all levels is encouraged and welcomed – from a phone call at any time with a question or a day hosted track side. As we are relatively new to the industry, it has been so reassuring to have the team there to provide explanation and support. We look forward to our future involvement with the team and ultimately look forward to experiencing the training they can provide to our horse and the success that is to follow. We would highly recommend Champion Thoroughbreds.
Jason and Delvene Mathie - May 2019


Racing thoroughbreds has been a passion of mine since I was a boy. I still remember going to Randwick with my grandmother and betting on Dinky Flyer. I always thought owning a thoroughbred was out of my budget. That was until I came across Champion Thoroughbreds.

Thanks to Champion thoroughbreds I now own shares in two impeccably bred fillies. By none other than Australia hottest and most successful sire Snitzel. That's right Snitzel. Champion Thoroughbreds provide first class and extremely professional updates and I personally feel like I am part of the family
Scott Curran - April 2019

I have raced plenty of horses over the years and have recently taken up shares in two of Champion Thoroughbreds horses. The first is a cracking Tavistock Colt whom is exceptionally well bred and can gallop. The second is a very quick young filly by Charm Spirit. I really am pleased to be involved with Jason, Emma and Neill and ofcourse having these horses with John O'Shea is a huge bonus. It really is a great mix. The management and communications is first class and I can't recommend them highly enough.
Charlie Anderson - March 2019


I have returned to race horse ownership after 25 years owning greyhounds. Syndication was very limited in 1990’s and I owned 100% of horses back then. In those days I was with Ray and Max Guy then with Brian Guy. Attracted to Champion Thoroughbred firstly with John O’Shea as trainer and then I noticed Jason Abraham’s was involved. I knew of Jason and his father as owners when I was with Ray Guy and always heard positive things about them from the Guys stable.

We have shares with another 6 syndicators and in regard to our initial and ongoing relationship with Champion Thoroughbreds we can only be glowing in our assessment and dealing with Emma, Neill and the team we have meet and would have no hesitation in giving a positive recommendation.

Correspondence,updates and general communication from Champion Thoroughbreds is of highest standard and horse reports are regular and precise in advising where each horse is in their preparation. In comparing syndicators we are involved with, Champion Thoroughbreds and one other are well ahead of our other 4 syndicators .
David and Elizabeth O'Neill - February 2019


We have had several horses since 2009 with Champion and we couldn't be happier.The communication is first-class, Emma and Jason are always just a phone call away, the newsletters each Friday which we look forward to are always so informative. No matter the size of your share, you are treated as if the horse was yours alone.A highlight so far is celebrating Target In Sights win at last years Magic Millions Sprint at the Gold Coast. We would not go elsewhere.-
Grace & Rocco Andreacchio - January 2018


Since linking with Champion Thoroughbreds in 2010 with Carmine King "The King", I have found the ownership experience with the team to be first class. I and my associates have raced many horses with Champion since and have found the communication, updates, access to stables and the race-day inexperience to be exceptional.

It is the little things count, availability of Emma and Jason, the friendliness of the stable staff, attending the sales with the team, access to Shannon and her team at Emeran Park while your horse is spelling the list goes on. We have enjoyed success with Champion Thoroughbreds with horses such as Carmine King, Hoss Amor, Ammirata and we are looking forward to further success with Chauvinist and Creative Moss. I would recommend calling Jason or Emma for a chat on your next horse
'Alex Hughes - December 2017

I have bred my own, I have raced horses with an interstate Hall of Fame trainer with horses that he has bought and syndicated, and I have had 4 horses now with Champion Thoroughbreds. The experience is one I enjoy immensely. The communication and stable updates are first class.

The Raceday experience and the down to earth nature of John O’Shea and the time he devotes to owners is unrivalled. And I have personally had great discussions with Jason about the racing and breeding industry in general. Most importantly above all else, you have always had the Horses I have raced, best interests at heart. And without our horses we are not an industry. A massive thanks to the whole organisation. And I look forward to owning more horses with you.
Jay Norden - December 2017


I have been an owner with Champion since their inception. What started as a share in one horse has snow balled into number 13. My experience has been outstanding. Fantastic horses and excellent communication, together with the elite skill of John O’Shea, and the warm professionalism of Emma and Jason adds up to great result and lots of fun. I feel like part of the Champion family. What a fantastic ride! I hope it continues for many years.
Vicki Sheils - November 2017


Our experience with Champion Thoroughbreds over the last 8 years has been a fantastic partnership. The information flow, the can do attitude, the general care towards us and our horses is exceptional. Horses are an incredible thrill and Champion Thoroughbreds team make it an even better experience. When I first came to be involved with Champion, my only hope and dream was to have a Saturday city runner. I feel very spoilt that we have been very lucky to have far exceeded that hope with Saturday winners, Sydney and interstate as well as winning and placings in stakes and group races. It’s a dream come true.

The level of knowledge, care and expertise, from John, Jason and Emma and the rest of the team is incredibly high and the professional and friendly atmosphere they create is the best I’ve experienced without doubt. The team are always excited to see us, always greeting us warmly and enthusiastic to talk about our champions. The personalised level of knowledge, attention to detail, for each horse, is incredible and goes hand in hand with the mountain of research done prior to any purchase, so you can feel very comfortable that every possible measure has been taken to reduce the risk and increase the horses potential to succeed. That’s why we keep coming back. I would highly recommend Champion Thoroughbreds to anyone looking to be involved in the incredible rush of horse ownership.
