Who is Prime Thoroughbreds?

We started in 1997 and have forged successful partnerships with some of Australia's best trainers. Initially, we worked exclusively with Bill Mitchell. Upon his retirement in 2005, we split the horses between David Hayes and Kris Lees.
Today, our business has greatly expanded from those days and we now have horses trained in four states.

Why Choose Prime?

Prime Thoroughbreds is a well established syndication company with a strong record of purchasing competitive and successful thoroughbreds. Our statistics back up our successful formula for selecting and managing our thoroughbreds for over twenty years.

With a lifetime interest in racehorses, the legendary Joe O'Neill has developed strong relationships with many of the best studs and trainers in Australia. By joining Prime Thoroughbreds, you can become part of this network. Joe personally attends the leading sales and buys shrewdly, backed up by months of painstaking research for each sale.

"I hope you decide to join Prime and experience racing a horse with us. Year in, year out, we prove by our results that you don't have to spend a fortune to get into a nice horse. In recent seasons, we have had Metropolitan or Stakes winners in NSW, Victoria, Queensland, SA and Tasmania. This places us at the forefront of syndication companies in Australia." - Joe O'Neill

We certainly do. Racing horses can be a difficult assignment for beginners. Not here at Prime! You will be made very welcome. You will meet many new people at various events and at the track. Many owners just keep 'getting into another Prime horse'. That is a massive endorsement.

Yes we are. Joseph O'Neill has held an Australian Financial Services Licence since February 21st, 2003. The licence is issued by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and it clearly states the authorisation to deal in managed investment schemes limited to horse racing.
