Greene Racing have the ambition and drive to win, and we are excited about our future racing prospects. A young enthusiastic team, our goal is to be one of the elite stables in this country and to be the first training establishment for consideration when someone is looking to place a horse. We are committed to providing a first class service to our clients.
In 2006, David & Heidi Greene purchased a small agistment and pre-training farm at Tahuna. Five years of hard work and tough lessons later, the frustrations of struggling to give the racehorses the best opportunities had got the better of them. They soled the farm and moved to a purpose built facility at Te Rapa in the heart of the Waikato – consisting of two 14 horse barns, outside yards, a walker and high speed treadmill – the complex benefits by having the Te Rapa race track on its doorstep.

Brent Cooper has been a thoroughbred racing enthusiast for over 35 years and has enjoyed considerable success as an owner, with over a hundred wins. From his role as a Director of the Auckland Racing Club he launched the Ellerslie "Winners Circle Syndicate" in 2009 which, over 20 wins later, is still going strong with most of its original membership.
Shortly after closing his Fashion business in 2014 he was contracted by NZTR to manage the Social Racing initiative, which had been developed to offer membership of professionally managed syndicates at a very affordable one-off annual cost. The syndicates lease quality fillies and race them in partnership with leading studs and celebrity ambassadors, such as four time winner "Aotearower" and current star filly “Bonny Lass”.
Now privately owned and operated by Brent, the focus of Social Racing continues to be entry level participation at an affordable fixed cost, however members still enjoy the complete ownership experience, including regular communication via email and social media as well as raceday benefits and privileges.
A recent extension to the business is SR Premier Syndication which will purchase and syndicate horses from New Zealand Bloodstock Sales to race with leading New Zealand-based trainers. SR Premier was active at Karaka 2022 and will look to increase its presence at future sales.

Timberlee Thoroughbred Syndications
Lisa Dunbar is a firm believer that syndication or multiple ownerships are the way of the future. It is a fantastic way to enter into racehorse ownership and enjoy all the fun of racing and make new friendships along the way. It is important that all owners feel involved no matter how small their share and she aims to offer transparent syndicates which are well run and simple to be a member of.
The intention is to provide horses for syndicates in a variety of ways depending on the clients’ requirements. You can rely on being fully informed of your horse’s progress and development.
The primary purpose of the syndicate is to provide an opportunity for like-minded racing enthusiasts to enjoy the shared experience of racehorse ownership and is purely for recreational pleasure and should not be regarded as a form of investment.
Stride Racing was formed to connect, engage, entertain and educate people interested in the sport of horse racing. Like you, we always loved the excitement of race day—but we also enjoy the thrill of seeing our own horses thunder down the home straight.
Which is why we wanted to create an affordable horse racing experience that ‘opened the gates’ to the sport, giving more people access to the benefits of thoroughbred ownership while transforming their experience into one that is engaging, social and educational.
