The “Tigers Syndicate” has been set up for followers of racing and rugby to combine their interests and meet other like-minded people.
Ben Youngs needs little introduction to rugby fans – he has made over 200 appearances for Premiership side Leicester Tigers and has over 70 caps for England. This will be his first foray into racehorse ownership.
“It’s something that I really want to be a part of. I think it is going to be a really enjoyable journey and I’m excited to see where it goes.”
Ben Youngs enjoyed a morning on the gallops at Cowell’s Newmarket stable, which has been home to some of Europe’s top sprinters in recent years. He was impressed by the fitness of the equine stars on show:
Robert Cowell has enjoyed top-level success in Europe’s most prestigious sprint races – with the likes of Prohibit, Jwala and Goldream – and says the syndicate horse is likely to be a sprinter too.
“I quite like those strong, strapping individuals. The sort that could show up in a ruck – a bit like a rugby scrum player in a lot of ways.”
The horse (still to be purchased) will race around the Midlands area, so the players and syndicate members will not have to travel far to see it run.
