Top Choice in Syndication

Racehorse syndication is a hugely popular way to become involved in horse racing as it offers all the thrills and excitement of owning your own winner at a fraction of the cost.

Topline Thoroughbreds, which purchases quality yearlings to be prepared by leading Randwick trainer Grahame Begg who puts the polish on current Group I performers such as Secret Admirer and Ilovethiscity.

The company is owned and run by director Rob Woods with Nick Melmeth engaged to work in sales and client liaison.

Rob Woods has owned and raced horses for many years, having raced them in syndication and full ownership and during that time has had horses run in the Magic Millions, Golden Slipper and win the Blue Diamond preview.

Rob’s role in being a director of Topline Thoroughbreds is a financial / client one managing the day to day running of the business, which focuses on providing a high class customer relationship and building the sort of client satisfaction that keeps owners coming back for more. Rob would like nothing more than to see Topline Thoroughbred owners enjoy all the thrills that he and his family have experienced over the years of his ownership.
