Our Approach


Our focus is to acquire horses between the ages of 2 and 5 which have already proven their ability for immediate action at the highest level of racing.

We will primarily target proven fillies and mares due to their residual value. Each horse will have a projected sale date after purchase (~12-24 months).

Our association with Taylor Made Sales Agency, the worldwide leader in Thoroughbred sales and marketing, reassures the horse will receive top dollar at the sale.


Typically operate by buying horses as yearlings or two-year-olds in training, leading to a long wait before the horse makes its first start.

Racing is inherently risky, buying unraced and unproven horses, especially males, increases that risk.

Little thought is given to the end return and sale of an unproven and unraced filly or colt.
