We are an affordable, and exciting syndicate based in the birthplace and global centre of thoroughbred horse racing, Newmarket, with 6 horses under our ownership. We have the goal of creating a family of syndicate owners who share a passion for horse racing and can get the benefits of owning a horse without the heavy price tag that comes with it. We have owner’s from all around the U.K and the world, including America, Australia, Dubai and South Africa. When you sign up you have access to our WhatsApp group chats where all the updates will be posted on each horse. You’ll also have direct access to our trainer Dylan. We also operate an open yard policy which means you can have direct access to your horse(s) 7 days a week. We believe this is unrivalled within the industry. What’s not to love! Ownership at it’s best.
Andrew O’Connor and Dylan Cunha founded Catch Us If You Can Racing in August 2022, making their first purchase with Confederation on 31st August at the HIT sales. Andrew and Dylan worked tirelessly to get the club up and running over that summer and are excited to run the syndicate in partnership together. We have since acquired a further 3 two year olds who are now in full training. For share availability please see each horse or if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Andrew here
Andrew and Dylan share the passion of horse racing as well as aviation, this brought the inspiration for the syndicate name from the world-famous film catch me if you can. The colours of the silks take inspiration from the blue sky and the yellow sun. The epaulets mirror that of a captain’s stripes and the star on the cap inspire us to reach great heights.

“Starting a racing syndicate has been a dream of mine for many years, having it become a reality has been mind blowing along with the support and interest we have already seen. It would be truly amazing if we could have 5 horses in the syndicate the end of this year (2023) with some great wins under our belt too” – Andrew O’Connor
