Partnership places available in new yearling purchases
We are in the process of setting up a partnership to buy between 4/5 quality yearlings at realistic prices for the purpose of racing success/sales based on a stringent selection criteria. Spending guidelines would vary from $20k and top out around $50k/$75k for an individual horse. Having studied all the trends over the last few years, the one area left with some cushion, is the yearling/two year old that was bought “right” and then breaks his/her maiden impressively with potential financial gain. E.g. the filly, Mani Bhavan, which won the G2 Adirondack recently, was bought last September for $30k. We believe if we can work diligently to protect the financial commitment our investors make, by improving a filly’s pedigree or finding a colt with a finite balance of speed and two turn potential, we can make good prize money or sell it as a potential “Derby” horse.
This year is an interesting year in that the highest number of horses in the history of Keeneland yearling sales has been catalogued. That fact combined with the uncertain economic climate, paucity of new buyers and necessity for sellers to pay rising stud fees etc, leads us to believe that there will be bargains and we want to capitalize on this!!
As we all know, the horse business is a high risk/high reward business, but we have a strong quantifiable record of success:
Dwyer G2 winner Mint Lane (unsold) – winner of close to $300k before getting injured.
Exhale, who had the highest Beyer speed figure going into the Triple Crown in 2007 before getting hurt- (bought for $100k and sold for $800k),
Personal Legend bought for $75k and sold for $425k.
Palace Episode (bought for $100k, unsold in the ring and then sold to Godolphin for $3.5 million dollars after winning the G1 Racing Post Trophy) and a number of others.
1. We propose putting together units based on what a person is willing to invest and relevant expenses will be billed accordingly.
2. People always need an exit strategy and as we all know, horses naturally separate themselves as time goes along. We propose to make a final dispersal at public auction November 2011. The partners can buy each other out if preferable, either before the sale or at the sale, based on an independent appraisal of their worth.
3. We will receive 5% commission on purchase price of all horses bought. In lieu of a management fee; we want to show a vested interest in them by taking 10% ownership of them between us. Thus we will act as managing partners. Decisions will be based on majority rules but in the case of an even split, the final say will be made by us. We will regularly update you on the horse’s welfare, progress reports/photos with pre-trainers etc will be our responsibility. Arrangements like bookwork, licensing, insurance, silks, selection of races etc will be reviewed by us after diligent discussion with all partners and an analysis of best choices will be calculated. When horses are sold we will receive 5% commission for a profit over purchase price if a horse is sold under one million dollars and 10% of the profit margin, if a horse is sold above a million. In line with other leading partnerships, we would also receive an annual breeding right each for a stallion prospect.
We regard this proposal as an opportunity for all partners to have a high level of racing success and a chance to make some money by offering an investment package of uncompromising quality, affording every horse every opportunity to excel!
