Opulence Ladies Syndicate Launched With Breeze-up Filly

Impatiently is set to make her debut at Yarmouth next week

The latest all-female racing syndicate has been launched by Opulence Thoroughbreds, which purchased a Calyx (GB) filly at the recent Goffs UK Breeze-up Sale at Doncaster.

Named Impatiently (Ire), the filly, who was consigned by Charlie Poste of Station Yard, has gone into training with Jane Chapple-Hyam and will race for Opulence Ladies. She is an intended runner in the Class 2 five-furlong maiden at Yarmouth on May 22.

Courtney Wyatt, Racing and Communications Manager for Opulence Thoroughbreds, said, “A huge percentage of our owners are men and that number reflects the general population of racegoers too. As a syndicate, one of our objectives is to bring new audiences into the sport, and this is a great opportunity to promote women in all aspects of racing, including ownership. The syndicate will be run by women, for women, and we are keen to support our fellow ladies in the industry. For instance, there are no female trainers in the top 20 of the Flat Trainers' Championship and we want to see more female jockeys rising the ranks too.

“We are really excited to see where we can go with this filly, who we felt went under the radar at the breeze-ups. She looks very quick and has a great mind, [and is] by Calyx, who made a great start to his first season last year. We would love to see her do well, not only for our owners but to encourage more women to enjoy horse racing.”
