How we identify the right horse

Clear Vision
The ability to identify an opportunity and have a clear vision on what a horse can develop into (You must have vision!)
Responsive
Once the opportunity is identified you must act quickly or you will lose the opportunity. We don't need to or get 2nd and 3rd opinions from so called industry experts. We are very confident in our abilities and know when to strike.
A Plan
We treat each horse as if we are buying a business. We have a complete business model in place before any horse is purchased. We know exactly what the plan is and how to accomplish it. We don't just buy horses to own a horse.

A Special Talent

It was a magical year with two Eclipse Award Winners in Dubai Majesty and Blind Luck. We have been building our team for a few years now and at this level everyone has to really understand and interpret the information about the horse correctly. It's truly a team effort form the pre-purchase exam to the trainer understanding the vision and the reason each of the horses is purchased.
