I confirm that I would like my membership of Racehorse Club to commence immediately rather than after the Statutory 14 day cooling off period. I acknowledge that if my Club racehorse races before the expiry of that 14 day cooling off period, that the Club will have provided the club services to me and I will have lost my right to cancel under the Consumer Contracts Regulations within the 14 day cooling off period.


  • Entered to run this Sunday at the Curragh
  • Royal Ascot 3rd in 2021
  • Trained by Create Belief’s trainer, Johnny Murtagh


Riot is a late-maturing gelding with a very fair handicap mark, high enough to make him worthy of a place at some of the most prestigious meetings in Europe over the coming months and give him the potential to become a Group-class horse before too long, but not so high that only minor improvement would see him grace the winner’s enclosure again very soon.

In short, he has exactly the right profile for a horse who should be able to give his lucky members a great deal of fun during the 2022 flat racing season.

A son of one of Europe’s top stallions, the brilliant four-time Group 1-winning miler, Kingman, and a mare, Alexander Queen, who is a half-sister to a pair of top-class sprinters in Dandy Man and Anthem Alexander, it was therefore no surprise that the bidding went all the way up to €850,000 when he was sold at auction before his racing career started.

He showed massive ability right from the word go in races restricted to two-year-olds, three times losing out in photo finishes prior to breaking his duck at Kempton. In 2021 that he enjoyed a full season of competition with an eight-race campaign. He narrowly failed to get his head in front, but he did post some excellent performances, in particular when finishing third from the field of 28 horses contesting the Buckingham Palace Handicap at the world-renowned Royal Ascot meeting in June. This was a fabulously strong piece of form as the two to beat him, Highfield Princess and Danyah, both went on to big race success on their very next starts.

Riot has a massive season ahead of him and looks sure to be in the winners enclosure very soon.

Freddy Tylicki says;

"RacehorseClub is once again delighted to team up with Qatar Racing and become part owners of the ultra-consistent, Riot. A hugely talented horse who is improving with age. He will run at all the major meetings this season aiming at the big handicaps. As we saw at Royal Ascot last year when finishing 3rd of 28 runners, Riot is able to mix it with the best. It’s fantastic to have another horse with Johnny Murtagh who did such a magnificent job with our very own Create Belief.”
