HAVE you ever dreamed of congratulating your horse in the winners' enclosure at Aintree, Ascot or Cheltenham and cracking open the champagne as you count the prize money?

Would you like to follow in the footsteps of famous football names such as Sir Alex Ferguson and Michael Owen or rugby stars Andy Powell and Mike Tindall?

The South Wales Argus today launches a new racing club in conjunction with Chepstow Racecourse allowing members to experience the thrill of racehorse ownership at an achievable cost.

The Argus horse will be specially selected with the aim of him or her running at Chepstow, Bath and other nearby tracks as much as possible so you can see your horse in action.

The horse will be in the capable hands of successful local trainer Ron Harris and members will be able to visit his yard to see what goes on behind the scenes.

If you join decide to join for just £150 you will also be eligible for a share of any prize money won and you will receive free admission to five nominated Chepstow fixtures and be invited to a hospitality event at Chepstow to include afternoon tea in a hospitality box with a tipster.

Members can also attend a free nominated meeting at both Bath and Ffos Las Racecourses and you will be able to bring a friend for free to a selected race meeting.

The club will run from June 1 this year to the end of May 2015 and more details are available on 01291 622260 or via email: racingclub@chepstow-racecourse.co.uk
