What We Look for When Selecting a Horse for Syndication


We assess the horse’s pedigree (family tree) and look for horses with a strong black type pedigree. This is one factor that contributes to the likely success of racing a horse. The ideal thoroughbred is a beautiful animal. The perfect choice is one that boasts a refined head, long neck, well-defined withers, deep shoulder, strong chest, short back and powerful hindquarters. 


The conformation of a Racehorse is one of the most important factors we consider in choosing a horse for one of our syndicates.  Horses are athletes and therefore its physical appearance, known as the horse’s conformation, gives us an indication as to their athletic ability.  We look for horses where their legs are perfectly straight with an overstep when walking.

Health & Welfare

At ARO, our love of horsemanship goes beyond just racing.  In the racehorse industry, it's critical that the health of the horse takes priority.  Our horses undergo a vet check and we rule out any horses that don't have clean X-Rays. We follow the best equine training practices, care and ethics throughout the career of each horse in our syndicates. 


Thoroughbreds are very smart horses with a strong work ethic. As a hot-blooded equine, they are generally more sensitive and spirited than other breeds - just like like their Arab ancestors. At ARO, we look for horses that possess a calm, even temperament which allows them to take the excitement of race day in their stride.
