“Racing is not more a hobby.
Racing means business.
For each segment of racing
you need  a project and a
professional to guide
you through.”

Renato Gameiro

While this is a given, the horse itself is where it all must start. With the right
horse and the right professionals your success will be imminent. The answer
to “how to”, is to start with an architect. Much like building a house you
need someone to plan the project and then select the right materials
(horses) to go with the right contractors (professionals). This architect
must oversee the plan and consult with you so that the project runs
smoothly. Now that the plan has been set you can sit back and

Lexington, Kentucky is the center
of the Bluegrass region on the state.
This is the Thoroughbred market in
headquartered. Here you can find
good horses to buy, the best market
to sell, a great place to bred and
the best team to assemble. The
right combination for the team who
will build the project should consist of  Agents, a Veterinarian, and
a Farm. The role of the agents would be the selection of the horses
and the knowledge of the market. The veterinarian will advise on
medical decisions  with regard to buying, racing and breeding.
The Farm will be the base for the horse."
