Florida Derby – Road to the Kentucky Derby 2013

News March 8, 2013

Florida Derby – Road to the Kentucky Derby 2013

It could be far too early in 2013 to start predicting any kind of Kentucky Derby winner this year, but many have already started to think about their picks.

For two colts the Florida Derby is a big prep race for the roses this year. Baffert’s Flashback and the Todd Pletcher-conditioned Verrazano both have the same kind of stats, but it’s Verrazano who will bemaking his Stakes debut between these two.

Many believe Verrazano will win tomorrows race by open lengths but some of the other horses need respect too. Verrazano is quite obviously pointed toward the Kentucky Derby and the Florida Derby imminent Pletcher knows he has a good horse.

So, going on the tips and past performances, we are tipping Verrazano for a win in the Florida Derby at Tampa Bay Downs.

Kentucky Derby 2012 : Not Long to Go Now!

News April 27, 2012

On May 5th 2012 all eyes in the horse racing world will be on Churchill Down racetrack in Louisville,Kentucky.

Some of the horses expected to appear in the Kentucky Derby 2012 are already starting to arrive at Churchill Downs for the run for the roses.

Photograph By MCHart

Union Rags, the horse trained by Michael Matz is expected to put in it’s final work before the derby this weekend on the main track at Churchill Downs, weather permitting of course. Prior to arriving at Churchill Downs, Union Rags was stabled at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. This is but a short trip to Churchill Downs in comparison to Daddy Long Legs who travels to Churchill Downs from much further a field, although this has not seemed to upset the horse as he is well travelled having raced at Meydan in Dubai for World Cup day. Daddy Long Legs, son of Scat Daddy has a pedigree which is well suited on both top and bottom for the dirt. Daddy Long Legs is a serious contender for the Kentucky Derby 2012, and should be noted on his previous achievements.

Team valor owned and Graham Motion trained, Went The Day Well, the winner of grade 3 Spiral Stakes at Turfway Park has the same connections as last years Kentucky Derby winner, Animal Kingdom. Went The Day Well first started racing in England where he ran twice, then was shipped to the USA in winter 2011.

Alpha, the runner up to winner Gemologist in the Grade One Wood Memorial is looking toward a final work at Belmont Park on Saturday, he is expected to ship over to Churchill on Monday April 30th.

Early speed may have been a major factor for the grey hope Hansen in the Grade One Bluegrass Stakes when we has betting favourite for the race but ended up finishing second behind Dullahan. Hansen the winner of the Gotham Stakes on March 3rd 2012 seemed to be too fresh from this win, he was lively in the build up to the race and during the post parade he seemed to be using up his valuable energy far too prematurely. Despite his pre-race energy usage Hansen led in the first turn and held the lead for around eight and a half furlongs. The lead could not be help much longer and this is when the winner Dullahan capitalised to burst home in the middle of the racetrack to catch Hansen at the 1/16th pole and win by 1 1/4 lengths in an extremely fast time. Hansen is a son of Tapit, has never finished outside the one two in his six lifetime races. There is a big chance for Hansen in the Kentucky Derby 2012 and it would come as no surprise to anyone that this horse could be right up there on the big day.

Kentucky Derby 2012 is only around the corner!

Today (April 27 2012)  only one horse put in a work in preparation for the Kentucky Derby 2012, and that horse was Take Charge Indy. He worked five furlongs in 1:00.47 and will be ridden on Kentucky Derby day by “Bo-rail” Calvin Borel. Calvin Borel won the 2007 Kentucky Derby with Street Sense, the 2009Derby on Mine That Bird, and the 2010 Derby aboard Super Saver. Borel goes for this fourth Kentucky Derby win in 2012 on Take Charge Indy and should not be ruled out have won three out of his last five starts in the race.

When the Keeneland meet finishes on Friday, the Churchill Downs Spring Meeting 2012 will begin the next day with an evening of racing for the initial day of racing at the prestigious Kentucky racetrack. The first race post time is at 6:00pm Eastern Time.

Thoroughbred Horse History and the Three Foundation Sires

News February 12, 2012

Thoroughbred foundation sires of the thoroughbred horse

The thoroughbred horse can trace its ancestry to three sires.

The Darley Arabian, The Godolphin Arabian, and The Byerley Turk are often referred to as the foundation sires of the thoroughbred horse breed.

The three foundation stallions were first brought to England from the Mediterranean Middle East in the seventeenth century. These sires got their names from their owners, Thomas Darley, Lord Godolphin, and Captain Robert Byerley.

The foundation sires were bred to native English horses. The product of this breeding was a new bred of horse which could attain fast speeds over longer distances and support greater weight while carrying a rider.

The aristocrats of Englandbegan selectively breeding the thoroughbred horse to develop the breed into the sportiest horses on the planet.

For over three hundred years, breeding the best broodmares with the fastest stallions produced sporting excellence on the horse race tracks. It was difficult in the beginning for thoroughbred breeders to keep records on horses, because most horse went unnamed until they had proven ability. James Weatherby did great research and kept private pedigree records. James Weatherby went onto publish the very first volume of the General Stud Book.

Although the thoroughbred horse breed can be traced back to England, its genetics are ultimately traced back to Arabians. The foundation sires all have genetics which go back toArabia. It is often thought the native sprinting breed the Scottish Galloway mares produced the first thoroughbred horses.

The thoroughbred is generally around 16 hands high and its appearance resembles its Arabian ancestry. The thoroughbred horses’ head is very refined with a sporty neck which is often longer than the necks of other horse breeds. The thoroughbreds’ withers are extremely well defined and its back very evenly curved. Thoroughbred shoulders are muscular and sloped and the girth is deep but relatively narrow. Thoroughbred horse legs are long and show pronounced tendons to allow the horse to move very smoothly.  Thoroughbred horse coat colors are usually dark bay, bay, chestnut, grey, and in some cases roan. White marking on the thoroughbred horse are often seen on their faces and on the legs or socks.

A Guide To The Thoroughbred Horses For Sale Private Market

News January 28, 2012

Anyone can own a racehorse. Really! And there is no shortage of thoroughbreds for sale! Whether you choose a public auction or a private sale, remember there are plenty of horses out there! This article is going to talk about private sales of horses, and what you need to remember to get a great horse for your money! Choosing a private sale is a great option for any horse buyer, whether they may be new or very experienced!


If you don’t have an extensive knowledge of horses, you might need a bit of help in this new endeavor. Not to worry, there is plenty of help out there! You might need a bloodstock agent when looking at thoroughbred horses for sale. A bloodstock agent is an agent who is very familiar with horse breeds and bloodlines, and can help you decide which horse is the best. They can also help negotiate prices, get the horse inspected, and take care of all of the paperwork for you! You pay them a percentage for a commission. In addition to a bloodstock agent, horse trainers and breeders can also offer valuable information.


One important thing to keep in mind before looking at thoroughbred horses for sale is the cost associated with their care and upkeep. It is not cheap to own a champion! Usually the average spent on a thoroughbred for care, training etc is around $25,000 to $30,000 a year! You have to think about first and foremost paying the trainer, which is super pricey to have your horse trained to race. Then, add vet bills, hay, food, grain, shoes, supplements, etc, and you have a very pricey hobby!! If you are just wanting to own a thoroughbred horse as a hobby and not to race, please remember that there are many affordable options out there that don’t cost millions of dollars! However, to properly care for a horse of any type is a time consuming and expensive job. Only people who are serious about caring for horses should buy them.


Private purchase is probably the easiest way to buy a thoroughbred horse for sale. You can take your time deciding on a horse, have it inspected by a vet, negotiate a fee beforehand, and generally have a more relaxed experience than that of a auction or a claim race. There are so many different avenues to explore when buying a thoroughbred horse for sale privately, your bloodstock agent can really direct you in the right way to go! You can buy from a private individual seller, or a large corporation! The options are endless as to where to get a horse for sale. The best way to start is probably by a simple web search, and then you will be able to go from there as to which avenue you want to pursue.


Once you find a thoroughbred horse for sale and decide to buy, your job is not done! You have to hire a trainer for your horse, get your racing liscense, register your horse with the Jockey Club, register for colors with the Jockey Club, and then you are ready to race and hopefully win some money! You may find that buying a thoroughbred horse for sale is a lot of work, but it will prove to be a valuable investment!

An Article On Thoroughbred Sales From The Perspective Of a Non-Thoroughbred Buyer

News January 21, 2012

This is an article written from the perspective of a non-buyer at thoroughbred sales in Lexington, Kentucky.

If there is one thing I love about living in Kentucky, it is the horses. I love horse racing, and I love seeing the thoroughbreds for sale at the sales each year. They are so beautiful and graceful, and I can spend a whole day at the sales each year, and I don’t even buy horses! I just like to look! And there are plenty of horses to look at!

We attend the Keeneland thoroughbred sales in Lexington, Kentucky. This is where the real champions come from! How do you know if the thoroughbreds for sale at Keeneland are going to be champions? Well, some of the previous Kentucky Derby winners that have come from Keeneland include War Emblem, Fusaichi Pegasus, Real Quiet, Thunder Gulch, Sunday Silence, Winning Colors, Alysheba, and Spectacular Bid; 2006 Belmont winner Jazil; and recent champions Round Pond, Stevie Wonderboy, Ashado, Lost in the Fog, Azeri, Serena’s Song, and Favorite Trick.  How’s that for a list!? These horse sales started in 1943, where a horse sold there went on to become the 1945 Kentucky Derby winner. Ever since the very beginning, Keeneland has been the place to buy and sale champion horses!

You make think that you wouldn’t enjoy horse sales unless you were coming specifically to buy thoroughbreds for sale. That is not true! The grounds are beautiful, and there is yummy food to eat! I could spend all day just walking around and looking at the beautiful horses! And, if you are going just to browse, you don’t have to pay any money, reserve a seat or anything! Just show up and enjoy a beautiful day looking at amazing thoroughbreds for sale!

If you ARE going to buy any of the amazing thoroughbreds for sale,however.. you should know a few things. First of all, you should bring some money! Thoroughbreds for sale at Keeneland sale for anywhere between $10,000- $250,000! I have even seen a horse sell for $750,000 once when I was there! I have heard of a few selling for over one million dollars, but I have never been there to see that! The world record for the most money ever paid was in 1985, here at Keeneland, when a horse named Seattle Dancer brought in $13.1 million dollars! WOW!  However, there are horses for the “mom and pop” type buyers too. You can buy a thoroughbred for as little as a couple thousand dollars! But be ready to pay, and pay quickly! If you do not have established credit with Keeneland, you must pay for your newly purchased horse in full within 30 minutes of sale! And make it snappy! Your new horse has 24 hours to be transported off of the Keeneland grounds, and during the super busy September and November sales, your horse must be moved immediately!

The main thing to remember is that the thoroughbreds for sale at Keeneland are some of the world’s most beautiful horses! They are graceful, talented, and many of them will become world renowned champions! Anyone can appreciate the beauty of these animals, even if you are not a super horse buyer with big pockets! If you have kids, this is even a great place to bring them to learn about horses and the horse industry. It is a great asset to have something so wonderful in our own backyard here in Kentucky! If you are ever interested in attending a thoroughbred sale, Keeneland is the place to do it! Good luck, and Happy Horse Hunting!

Thoroughbred Racehorses For Sale in Florida and Around The World

News December 28, 2011

Thoroughbred racehorses for sale can be found at horse auctions around the world.

The UK, USA, France, Germany,Japan and Australia all have big thoroughbred racehorse auctions several times each year. Thoroughbred racehorse auctions consist of various age groups of thoroughbreds, for instance, there are thoroughbred yearling sales which focus on young horses between one and two years old. These yearling sales are often attended by pin hookers. Pin hookers are thoroughbred race horse investment sales people. Their job is simply to make money from buying young thoroughbred racehorses and selling them as two year old thoroughbred race horses for sale at the two year olds in training sales. There are of course, smart thoroughbred buyers who will choose to buy their thoroughbreds horses as yearlings or even as weanling to find good looking young thoroughbred horses for sale at a fraction of the cost of a thoroughbred racehorse at two years old.

Two year old thoroughbred racehorses for sale sell for much more money than a young thoroughbred racehorse due to being of racing age and almost ready to be entered for a race. As yearlings, these young thoroughbred racehorses need to be broke and trained into horses which are ready to be ridden in a race. Training a horse to take a rider on its back, is called “breaking a horse”. Breaking a thoroughbred racehorse can take around three to six months depending on how fast a horse takes to riding. Often a rider can be on the horse’s back within weeks, but good trainers often take their time with their young horses and slowly ease them into the world of horse racing. Getting on a horse is only part of the first step, there are many other things which help racehorses to become equipped and ready for racing. A thoroughbred racehorse will need to learn how the rider will communicate with it, for instance the thoroughbred horse will have to get used to the reining and how it should turn and move according to instructions dictated by the rider or jockey.  Thoroughbred race horses for sale at the two year olds in training sales around the world, need to be ready to perform with a rider on their back. Often these thoroughbred horses will be asked to “breeze”. Breezing a thoroughbred is the practice of time trialing a horse for speed at a set distance. Some thoroughbred racehorses for sale go one eighth of a mile, some thoroughbred horses go half miles during the breeze time trial. Having a super fast horse during the breeze show is half the battle, the other half of the battle is having the horse look good and comfortable at doing what it does. The thoroughbred racehorse for sale should move well and be comfortable with the rider on its back, this way prospective thoroughbred racehorse buyers will be able to see that this horse will be competitive in a race due to its attitude, looks, and speed.

Thoroughbred racehorses for sale in Florida, Kentucky, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, and Australia are some of the best race horses in world. For example many thoroughbred horse buyers travel each year to the two year old thoroughbred horse sales in Florida, due to the high percentage of thoroughbred horse winners coming from the state. Finding good quality, high performing, and top class thoroughbred racehorses for sale can be easy if you look at statistics of thoroughbred racehorse sales, cost/performance statistics, and all other past sales results against thoroughbred racehorse performance records.
