For those who enjoy flat horse racing our syndicates are trained by Tom Dascombe at Michael Owen’s Manor House Stables in Cheshire. Our National Hunt syndicates are trained by Grand National-winning racehorse trainers Gordon Elliott, Jonjo O'Neill, Donald McCain and Dr. Richard Newland. We also have exciting young trainers Olly Murphy, Oliver Greenall and Sam Allwood joining Deva's training ranks. News of our latest syndicates are on the horses page now.
We pride ourselves on our integrity and excellent owner communication and we endeavour to make everyone feel they are the sole owner of their racehorse. Our trainers actively encourage stable visits and we regularly organise social events for our syndicate owners.

About Ryan Tongue
Born and raised in Worcester, Ryan had a passion for racing at a very young age and has been fortunate enough to be involved with a top-class racehorse, Best Mate, during his career. Ryan was taken on by retired racehorse trainer, Henrietta Knight, and owner, Jim Lewis who looked after him as an apprentice.
At 16 years of age, Ryan was determined to be a jockey and had his first ride at Bangor On Dee where he came 3rd on a horse owned by The Queen’s representative, Johnny Weatherby.
Ryan rode all over the country as an amateur jockey. With this first-hand experience in racing, Ryan took on the role of Racing Manager for Grech and Parkin in 2018, who own 45 horses in the UK and France.
Ryan has years of experience in the racing world and works to inspire the next generation of jockeys and racegoers as well as raising money for the Injured Jockeys Fund.
Ryan and the team raised £27,500 for the Injured Jockeys Fund at Ascot Racecourse alone in 2018 and they even excelled that by raising £35,000 in 2019. They are determined to raise the bar for 2020.
