Irving

Over a period of twenty years, Axom has given horse racing enthusiasts the chance to experience racehorse ownership through syndication with small groups of like-minded individuals.

Deano's Beeno got the ball rolling in 1997 and this enigmatic yet hugely talented hurdler became Axom's first Grade 1 winner with his stunning victory over Baracouda in the 2002 Long Walk Hurdle at Ascot. He is now enjoying a happy retirement at Greatwood home for retired racehorses and is sometimes seen parading at his local racecourse, Newbury. In 2014, Irving became Axom's second Grade 1 winner with a stunning victory in the Fighting Fifth Hurdle at Newcastle. Irving will always remain close to his trainer, Paul Nicholls' heart, as he was his 100th Grade 1 success. Just a week later, Paul trained Vibrato Valtat to win the Grade 1 Henry VIII Novices' Chase at Sandown in great style, later adding the Haldon Gold Cup to his CV the following season. Irving showed great courage to repeat the feat in the 2016 Fighting Fifth Hurdle, beating the subsequent Cheltenham Festival winner, Apple's Jade, by a short head.

The likes of Far West (a dual Grade 2 winner and runner-up in the Grade 1 Triumph Hurdle), the much-missed Edgardo Sol (Grade 3 winner and Cheltenham Festival veteran) and Shotgun Paddy (Grade 3 winner and third in the 2016 Welsh National) have ensured that Axom's name has remained in lights at all the major Jumps Festivals in recent seasons. Recent successes include Ziga Boy, who is the only horse to win two renewals of the Great Yorkshire Chase in over 70 years, providing his owners with two phenomenal days out at Doncaster. Listed-winning mares Tagrita and Lifeboat Mona both excelled during the 2016/17 season, prior to their retirement to join the breeding shed, while one of Emma Lavelle's best horses, Javert, should return in 2017 after spending a year on the sidelines.

On the Flat, Listed winner Athenian flew the flag until her retirement in 2014, but the ultra-consistent Star Fire won four times in 2015 for the Master of Beckhampton, Roger Charlton. Blakeney Point has stolen the limelight for his owners in the past twelve months, as the son of Sir Percy won three races last season, before opening his account for 2017 at Kempton in the Queen's Prize Handicap, potentially setting him up for an excellent season in long-distance races.

With Axom's policy of never compromising when purchasing new bloodstock, every owner who joins us has a chance of being involved with a potential star. Axom's record of finding winners is extraordinary and, as we move ever forwards, our commitment and passion means that we look forward to giving our clients a unique and memorable racehorse ownership experience for many years to come.
