Taste Of Victory Stables: Racehorse Ownership Without Breaking The Bank
Updated: Jul 19, 2019
Owning a Thoroughbred racehorse outright is something that can seem impossible for many people. It is so expensive to purchase a horse in the first place, and then you must pay a trainer and various other fees along the way. Unless you have a supply of cash that’s ready to be spent on unexpected bills or fees, racehorse ownership is simply not a feasible investment.
However, groups like Taste Of Victory Stables are making racehorse ownership possible for people of varying income levels. Through them you can buy shares in a racehorse, giving you all of the benefits of ownership at a much lower cost. Taste Of Victory Stables was formed in 2015 as a partnership between Kyle Yost and Brian Richardson. Both Brian and Kyle had been involved in horse racing partnerships since the mid 2000s. They formed Taste Of Victory to educate people on horse racing ownership as well as to share that ownership experience - especially the experience of being a winning owner. Over the years, the Taste Of Victory has grown to include Russ Sapienza, the team’s Senior Advisor, and Erin O’Keefe, the team’s Director of Operations.
The Taste Of Victory team is full of experience and they want to share that with everyone who joins their stable. For as low as $750, you can share equity in a Thoroughbred racehorse.
In 2018, Taste Of Victory Stables enjoyed a 20% win rate. That winning rate almost guarantees you will be given a complimentary winners’ circle photo the first time that your horse wins. Imagine being able to say that one of your horses won at places like Del Mar, Santa Anita, Golden Gate Fields, or Laurel Park. Some of the horses in Taste Of Victory Stables are:
Absolutely Perfect: A four-year old filly by Vronsky out of In Perfect Style (Perfect Mandate). She is trained by Dan Blacker and has raced three times, breaking her maiden at Del Mar in November of 2018. In her most recent start, Absolutely Perfect earned herself a 96 Equibase Speed Figure.
