Gai explains: "We are results driven. We receive a percentage of prizemoney, as all trainers do and we're happy to rely on our hard work and results to keep our training fees
Owners are invoiced monthly in accordance with the percentage of the horse each owns. The itemised statement will include all expenses incurred except transportation and veterinary which are billed direct.
As a budgeted figure - Owners with a
share in a horse with Dynamic Syndications trained by GAI should budget an average of
per day (approximately
per month) over 12 months to cover all the ongoing costs.
COME AND SEE YOUR HORSE
Every Sunday, from
11 a.m. until mid-day
, the stables are open for owners to inspect their horse and discuss its progress with Gai and her key staff. Stay behind for refreshments in the beautifully-appointed T J Smith Room, to celebrate victories and to meet fellow owners. Viewing can be arranged outside this time by appointment.
horse, our team works closely in conjunction with Gai. Between us we manages the horses' careers at every stage, from purchase in the sale ring and all the necessary paperwork, spelling and pre-training, right through to on-sale or retirement.
Adam Watt regularly attends trackwork with GAI and her team, to get the latest "hands-on" information flow from GAI for the Owners.
These reports are regularly recorded and forwarded to Owners immediately to give ALL our Owners the closest opportunity to be updated about their horse.
Every Tuesday morning Adam & Gai do a short video show "A DAY WITH GAI" where owners in Gai's stables get the latest update on Dynamic horses in the stable and the other trackwork stars of the morning Gai is heading towards upcoming races.
Owners receive as a minimum a weekly audio report and then as the horse progresses through too racing, these updates increase to several updates a week and Owners also receive telephone contact pre-race. You'll never miss out - It's worry-free ownership.
Adam & Dean Watt with co-trainer -
When your horse races you are entitled to complimentary access to members' and owners' areas and to the mounting yard where you can join Gai and Team Dynamic to meet the jockey and to hear Gai & the Team discuss the race.
On various days at the major tracks Gai extends raceday hospitality to participating owners.
