Former Classic-winning jockey Ted Durcan has been appointed as the UK and Ireland bloodstock consultant for MyRacehorse. Durcan will select horses for the microshare syndicate from both public auctions and privately.
Durcan, who runs Durcan Bloodstock, said, “I am delighted to have been asked to join MyRacehorse to help the team source some exciting and fun horses for the season ahead.
“MyRacehorse gives everybody the chance to see how this amazing sport works from the inside out rather than the outside in. This is something that normally would not be achievable for most people, but MyRacehorse makes it happen.
“Being involved in racehorse ownership is fun, exciting and social. There are highs and lows but it’s the whole journey that makes this sport special, and it’s important to find new ways to share that journey.”
Kate Hardy, Director of Operations at MyRacehorse, added, “We are thrilled to have Ted working with MyRacehorse as we grow our stable here in Ireland and the UK.
“His extensive knowledge of the sport, and the unique perspective he has as an ex-jockey when it comes to evaluating form and conformation are invaluable to MyRacehorse.
“Ted’s track record and reputation speaks for itself, and we are extremely fortunate to have him join our team.”
