Racing Connexions is an exciting racing syndicate with at its core a team steeped in horse racing and truly passionate about the sport.
David Brown, Lindsey Smith and Iain Ferguson have between them decades of experience in the racing industry and can tap into a variety of skill sets to ensure our syndicate members enjoy an unequalled racehorse ownership experience which combines glamour, excitement and value.
David is a Chartered Accountant, has been involved the racing industry for 15 years and has held roles as firstly Finance Director and then Managing Director of a major racecourse.
During his time in the industry David has become especially interested in breeding of horses and his burgeoning knowledge has proved invaluable when hand picking perspective buys for Racing Connexions.
Only when David is satisfied with a horse’s bloodlines will he decide to bid and he always has value in mind. This is why he will continue to target yearlings with exceptional breeding.
David also carefully selects our trainers who all have a track record of bringing out the best in horses while also providing exemplary care and attention and maintaining the highest horse welfare standards at all times.
Lindsey has been a Sales and Marketing Manager for more than 25 years with almost 18 of those spent in racing at Scotland’s only Grade 1 racecourse.
Her love of racing has grown over the years and her role in Racing Connexions includes ensuring that our owners enjoy the best possible raceday experience when they attend courses to watch their horse in action.
We promise to give our owners days they will never forget as they enjoy the unique thrill of owning a racehorse and Lindsey’s unrivalled expertise in her field helps sprinkle even more stardust on a Racing Connexions Day At The Races.
Iain spent more than 30 years at the cutting edge of journalism latterly as assistant Editor of Scotland’s then best-selling newspaper and is also a former Reporter of the Year in Scotland.
He has always had a huge passion for horseracing and has now been involved in a professional capacity in the industry for 18 years in his role as Head of PR at a top racecourse. He has also written a column on the sport for many years and is on first name terms with many of the leading protagonists in racing including trainers and jockeys.
