Track Record

Many in the business long enough
can point to a good horse or two  
they have been a part of somehow.
The percentage of their successes over
time is much more important.

And our 
graded stakes
 percentages are 
Graded stakes are the top worldwide stakes and a tiny percentage of all the stakes races out there. 
EQB has proven it can add value to even the most successful trainer’s selection process. 

 We've bought
 unraced at 
 horses that 
went on
WIN over 39 Grade One
 stakes races 
 in the past several years with horses we bought at auction as un-raced youngsters, as listed in the chart below. Average prices paid were near auction averages. 
And consulted on
 at least a dozen other
Grade  One
stakes race
where we kept owners from selling homebreds as youngsters by consulting on their careers, purchase or retention at auctions recently including:  Recently : Solomini, Big World, We Miss Artie(multiple grade one winner), American Pharoah (multiple Grade 1 - TRIPLE CROWN,Breeders Cup Classic - see the front page NY Times article June 5, 2015), Tonalist (multiple grade ones) ,  Bobbie's Kitten (Grade 1 Breeder's Cup),  Admiral Kitten (Grade 1- $459,080),  Big Blue Kitten (Grade 1 - $1,058,530) , Real Solution (multiple Grade 1 - over $1,200,000), Dullahan (G1-$1,072,0009),   Kitten's Dumplings (Grade 1 Queen Elizabeth Challenge Cup at Keeneland), Balance The Budget, and  Stephanie's Kitten (multiple grade ones).

Sample EQB Track Record Recently:
# purchased by sample client = 43
median purchase price under $150,000.
(commissioned and/or top short-list hips)

(we also have other client examples that 

match or exceed these results)

Unraced 6    
Winners at MSW or higher 26 70%
Stakes placed 11 30%
Stakes winners 8 22%
Graded Stakes Placed 10 27%
Graded Stakes Winners 7 19%

Purchased as yearlings and two-year-olds at public auctions. Race records through October of their three-year-old year. This record includes a new track record at Saratoga, a NY Turf Writers Leading Stable in USA title, and several Kentucky Derby and World Championship Breeders Cup entries.  It was a good start for a client in only its third year of racing!

Since then, 

those percentages have held

roughly steady

Another example :--

In 2012 and 2013 

we bought 14 horses at auction 

as yearlings and 2 year olds 

for a major EQB client 

(call for details).

The result now 

that those horses are 3 year olds 

is over 20% graded stakes winners

 including GRADE ONE STAKES.

Their average price was $65,000 

and they have already 

earned over $2,200,000 in purses.

AND what about "off-the-track?"

A typical year’s fatigue curve
“release” list’s

subsequent performance:

( i.e., we don't just buy at auctions.

Below are summarized results for those flagged for closer examination based on their velocity decay logarithmic fatigue curve in their 1st or 2nd race):

Among 189 full “releases”:

  • 49% Won stakes races
  • 70% Placed in stakes races (finished at least third)
  • 11% Won G1 stakes races
  • 18% Won G1 or G2 stakes races
  • 24% Won G1, G2 or G3 stakes races
  • 17% Placed G1 stakes races
  • 28% Placed G1 or G2 stakes races
  • 39% Placed G1, G2 or G3 stakes races

* These results are without testing, or knowing, other criteria like heart, gait or veterinary analysis, which would improve results.
