Racing Strategy

We typically purchase medium priced 2 year-olds at the Ocala spring (April) 2 year-olds in training sale, horses that should be ready to race by mid-summer of the year purchased.  Our strategy is to find quality horses by emerging stallions with proven past success on the race track.

We sometimes purchase a select yearling or two at the Fasig-Tipton public auction in Saratoga (August) or Keeneland fall sale. Here we focus on high-quality stallions early in their stud career, if we see a value opportunity.  Our hope is to avoid excessive stud fees and inflated yearling costs, finding “lightning in a jar” from a younger, dynamic and perhaps not yet fully appreciated stallion.  These yearlings are a year or more away from their first race, but when ready will race primarily at Belmont Park, Aqueduct Race Track and Saratoga Race Course, taking advantage of the highly lucrative incentive awards on the New York Racing Association circuit for New York breds.  For more information on the New York bred program go to www.nybreds.com.
