Support from across British racing:

A successful Tote means big prize pots for race fans and money going back into the sport. It’s great to see the Tote will continue to be owned by real horsemen with racing’s best interests at heart to provide just that.
— Sir Anthony McCoy, former 20-time Champion Jockey
Cheveley Park is delighted to see the consortium successfully complete the transaction and hopes to see UK Racing benefit accordingly.
— Richard Thompson, owner of Cheveley Park Stud
This new move looks to be a breath of fresh air for the cherished Tote and the sport in general. It should hopefully lead to new and innovative products for the betting public along with better returns for racing.
— Hugo Palmer, Group 1 winning trainer
The Tote is one of British racing’s most cherished brands and to see it revitalised to reach its past heights would be fantastic for the sport. This is absolutely the right team to make this happen. I am confident they can unite all stakeholders to help the industry at a time when it needs it most.
— John Gosden, Classic-winning trainer
To see these developments at the Tote and the team behind these changes gives me great hope and excitement for the future of British racing. The fact that the new group of owners is so much a part of the industry and respectful of its history will mean that the interests of everyone involved in the sport  are well served.
— William Haggas, dual classic-winning trainer
My father won the Derby in the year I was born, so I have been involved in horse racing my whole life. During that time, the Tote has remained one of the sport’s most high-profile names and I’m delighted that my fellow Epsom board member Alex, and his team of owners and breeders have taken a stake. They are people with racing in their blood and I have no doubt the Tote will be in excellent hands under their stewardship and they have the industry and the racing public’s interests at heart.
— Clare Balding, Broadcaster
The retention of owners in British racing is of paramount importance and critical to ensuring that the number of horses in training increases. Whilst one of the challenges at the moment is sole owners leaving the sport, it is encouraging to see a group of owners and breeders coming together to help build a strong Tote to benefit all of racing, including through an increased contribution to prize money; a huge positive for the industry.
— Charlie Liverton, Chief Executive of the Racehorse Owners Association
Anything that helps to improve the prize money situation in Britain would be most welcome, and a flourishing Tote would certainly do that. Seeing a team of owners and breeders combining to purchase a stake in one of racing’s biggest icons is heartening for us and we are very encouraged about the future of the Tote.
— Oliver Sherwood, Grand National-winning trainer
