Buying a racehorse is a significant financial investment. Markel aims to protect this investment thanks to our expertise and financial stability. We have insured some of the largest stables for years and are proud to have protected numerous great champions during their racing and breeding careers. Several winners of the Prix d’Amerique have been covered by Markel in recent years. Our experts are present at sales and racemeetings as well as the qualifications at Grosbois and Caen.
the agreed value
all Markel equine policies are done on agreed value, which means you know what you’ll get in the event of a claim (except if the horse is bought at an auction or runs in a claimer). Some of our competitors specify that you get at the best the « market value », which means you are not sure that you’ll get the insured value back.
