“The numbers are crystal clear on Triple Crown’s syndication success. Since the start of 2010, the red and white has been carried to 16 Group race victories – more than double the next best of their competitors. Same goes for number of individual horses to have won Group races in the same period. All the while working off a budget inferior to most of their rivals.” Adam Pengilly, Sydney Morning Herald (2015)
With the majority of new clients referred by existing owners, it’s obvious that Triple Crown is doing something right.
Since 2010, Triple Crown has recorded significantly more Group race winners than any other Australian syndicator. This success has resulted in yearlings advertised for shorter lengths of time each year. The horses are quickly sold out due to the confidence that clients have in their practices.
In late 2014, Triple Crown Syndications was appointed as the sole and exclusive syndicator for Peter & Paul Snowden. This is a significant vote of confidence from Snowden Racing and sees two leaders in their fields combine to form a very formidable team.
Everything that Triple Crown does is focused on winning the best races and having their owners enjoy the journey to the winners stall.
From the strict and specific selection process at the yearling sales, through employing the very best industry professionals for all aspects of training, riding and spelling, it is all in place to ensure that your horse has the very best chance on the track.
With clients in every Australian state and abroad (Hong Kong, Dubai, America, New Zealand, UK, China, Singapore and Africa) the Triple Crown client database is growing rapidly.
Chris and Michael Ward were destined for a career in the racehorse industry from a very young age. The evolution of their passion for all things Thoroughbred is the result of spending their formative years with countless Saturdays at the track and weekends at stud farms assessing breeding and young stock.
After formally obtaining invaluable backgrounds in the finance industry, both brothers returned to their Thoroughbred passion. Having identified a gap in the market which needed filling, the brothers founded Triple Crown Bloodstock Pty Ltd in 2004 and moulded it into the successful operation it is today.
As well as being frequently seen at the track and at auction sales, as full time directors of Triple Crown, Chris and Michael are the keystones of the ever developing business.

The beauty of syndication is the ability to purchase a share as small as 5% in your chosen thoroughbred and still have your name in the racebook. According to the Australian Rules of Racing, a horse can have a maximum of 20 shareholders (incl sub-syndicates). Whether you’re an owner of a 5%, 10%, 50% or 100% share of the horse, you are guaranteed tickets/access to the exclusive members and owners only areas on race day. In addition to the lower purchase price, you will only be paying your percentage of the horse’s bills.
Despite much lower outgoings however, the thrill of winning a race is as great for a 5% owner as it is a 100% owner!
