Syndicate Offers Racing Fans Another Taste of Victory

“Taste of Victory Stables” - what a fitting name for this group. Those involved certainly do get a taste of victory, and everything in between. Being a part of their stable is being a part of the horse racing industry in the truest sense of the term. You feel it all - the good, the bad, and the incredible.

Kyle Yost manages the syndicate’s East Coast operation while Brian Richardson takes care of things out West. In between them, Erin O’Keefe acts as the director of operations and Russ Sapienza works as a senior advisor. Together they make a strong and knowledgeable team.

They are a team that has picked up winners from coast to coast. In Dan Blacker’s barn out in sunny California you will find the likes of Hit The Road, an impressive two-year old colt that will be running in a stakes race next out. Out East in the barn Ray Handal you will find the likes of the ever consistent and always trying Binkster as well as the beautiful three-year old filly I’llhandalthecash, who will also be running in a stakes race next out.

But it doesn’t end there, either. Phil Schoenthal, Phil D’Amato, and Ronney Brown also train for Taste of Victory. It seems as if their horses are getting better and better everyday. Each trainer puts such special and careful attention into each of Taste of Victory’s horses. Much to the excitement of the Taste of Victory team and all co-owners involved, the horses just keep winning (or coming extremely close to it).

"I think the most unique thing about Taste of Victory is the reason the syndicate started it and the way we run it. It was started as a way to share a love of racing, and we continue to keep that as a central goal in everything we do," said Director of Operations Erin O'Keefe.

"Our groups are structured to create an affordable buy in point, while still keeping the number of co-owners low enough to allow for full ownership experience. We also have an aftercare fund, that each new group adds funds to, that we use to ensure our horses all retire into the best possible situation. We are committed to providing new owners with a thorough introduction to the Thoroughbred industry and providing as much information as possible, in a fun and positive way!"
