Our Team


Our Director, John O’Donoghue, works in the industry as Assistant Trainer to Roger Varian. Having spent time working for trainers such as John Oxx and David O’Meara, his judgement of horses on paper and in training puts us right amongst the leading syndicates in the sport.


Our Racing manager, Jodi Finucane, has worked in bloodstock for operations such as Camas Park Stud and the Aga Khan Studs, and takes care of all purchases and the administration of each of our syndicates. Jodi prides herself on being able to cater for the larger, more established owner as well as those who are new to the world of thoroughbred ownership.

We’ve had great fun with York Thoroughbred Racing, and you will not meet more genuine people
