When considering involvement in a Thoroughbred sale, make sure you know what you’re getting yourself into. No matter how excellent the animal, no matter how good you think your odds will be, remember that you’re investing cold, hard cash and you need a team of people you can trust to manage that investment.
Going it Alone
Those who own horses alone are those who have serious disposable income to spare. The cost of a good horse alone can run many thousands of dollars. Add to that cost training, food, boarding, veterinary care, farrier’s fees, transport to race locations, and jockey fees. You’re looking at a massive cost in order to own a single animal, not to mention the daunting task of learning your way through the artistry of the racing world on your own, without a trustworthy guide. And keep in mind that, according to a Crocker Racing Stable article on horse ownership, about a third of foals bred to racing never start in a single race, and half of those that do get to start never win!
A few lucky souls have the background and the income to make it in horse racing alone. For the rest of us, syndicate partnerships, like those offered here at Blinkers On, allow the thrill and possibility of Thoroughbred ownership for a manageable cost. According to an article by Horse Hats Racing Club, syndicate racing was pioneered back in 1969 by Dogwood Stable’s Cot Campbell. Since the first syndication, racing partnerships have made owning a piece of the Thoroughbred pie affordable and manageable for the Average Joe.
For example, right now we’re offering a share in the two year old filly, Hidinginplainsight, by Elusive Quality out of Hot Storm, starting at $5,995 with 5% interest expenses. She’s NATC Futurity, Breeders Cup, and EFB nominated, with a spotless pedigree. Hidinginplainsight is one of many examples of the quality we strive to offer our partners here at Blinkers On. And we keep a share in all of our horses, so you know we’ve put our money where our mouth is. We manage all aspects of Thoroughbred ownership and keep our partners well informed of all our decisions. With a share in a partnership, you’ll share all the costs of ownership with others and share in the thrill of race day as an insider, not just a spectator. And with Blinkers On, you’ll know you have an experienced partner guiding you through the ins and outs of a Thoroughbred sale and racing strategy.
