Kenwood Racing Taste of Thoroughbred Ownership Package #34
This group features a well-bred two year old filly with a world of upside potential for a very modest price. It's similar to group #31 with Pink Cashmere, a lovely homebred sold by breeder Esther DeJong who has already won for us and we think is going to be a very nice three year old this year. A 5% Co-Ownership in this package is just $3,900 total, including all management fees with no additional payments of any kind, one of the lower priced packages we’ve ever offered. Obviously, there are never any guarantees in this business. Potential does not always equal racetrack success, but we have good reason to be excited about this filly.
Exchanging Ember (E Dubai – Exchanging Fire) is a two year old of 2017 (all horses have an official birthday of January 1st for racing purposes). She is by E Dubai, a top son of the legendary leading sire Mr. Prospector and the sire of over 40 stakes winners to date, out of Exchanging Fire, a filly we raced who won three stakes in a single year and almost $250,000 in her great career. A beautiful, well balanced individual, as a Pennsylvania Bred this filly is eligible for a series of lucrative state bred races against restricted competition. She will be trained by Ben Perkins (who also trains Pink Cashmere and has a long record of success with young horses) after completing her breaking and training at T-Square Stud in Ocala, Florida where she is now located. She will ship to Monmouth Park in the spring for summer racing at Monmouth and/or nearby Pennsylvania tracks (remember, all plans as to races, tracks, etc. are always subject to change!).
Kenwood Racing Taste of Thoroughbred Ownership® Groups #35, #36 & #37
This year’s OBS March sale is one that will long be remembered for the three outstanding prospects we were able to purchase at value prices. We did our homework and came home with a colt and two fillies we are thrilled to have in our barn. As well as we have done with horses from this sale in past years, we think these three horses have a chance to be the best yet.
As you’ll see from the details below, we have exceptional individuals by very prominent sires. If two of them were packaged in a group it would be $8,000 - $9,000 and many of you expressed the desire to be able to participate at a lower price point. We want to make this opportunity affordable to as many people as possible, so we’re offering them separately AND reducing the management fee included in the package pricing below since it’s a single horse ‘group’, which will keep each group well under $5,000, as always a one-time payment with no future bills ever!
ANY horse we like enough to bid on at a sale is a horse we feel has the potential to be a really good racehorse. The truth is, nobody knows for sure which horse will be the “good” one, if we did, we’d buy that one and no others. There are never any guarantees in this business. Potential does not always equal racetrack success! With our own money invested in every horse we offer to co-owners, we are very selective about what we purchase at any price point!
Here’s a brief description of the horses in Kenwood Racing groups #35, #36 & #37...
Vibrant Spirit (Kitten’s Joy – Spirit Line) is a really good-looking filly by one of the premier sires in North America. Kitten’s Joy is a leading sire in North America, he has over 75 stakes winners and his foals have been particularly good at classic distances on both turf and dirt. This filly has two full sisters; one has earned over $130,000 to date and the other is a stakes winner of over $230,000. While pedigree isn’t a guarantee, when you have a breeding that has worked this well not once but twice, it’s reasonable to be very optimistic about her prospects. We loved her and were prepared to pay a LOT more, but when she failed to reach her reserve, we went to the seller and purchased her post-sale for a value price. She’ll be trained by Ben Perkins at Monmouth Park, where she’ll hopefully make her debut this summer. Click here to view the catalog page and under tack video.
That's History (Flat Out – Circustown Rose) is a powerful, athletic colt from the first crop of a multiple grade 1 winning sire who earned over $3,600,000 in his career. He’s out of a young, stakes winning mare from a female family filled with stakes horses. Of the 6 colts at the sale that made our final bid list, he was our top choice. Big, strong colts who move well on the track are generally very hard to buy because everyone is looking for horses with classic distance potential. We were fortunate to get this horse at a price we could afford. He’ll be trained by Ben Perkins and based at Monmouth Park, where he hopefully will make his debut this summer.

Lisa Limon (Scat Daddy – Lemon Splash) was purchased at the end of the sale from a one-horse consignment. We were incredibly fortunate here; by the time she came into the ring, there were no serious bidders waiting for her and they had to buy her back. We approached them post sale and were able to buy her at a great price. To offer some perspective, we were the under bidder on two very similar fillies that sold for $72,000 and $77,000 by lesser sires. This is Scat Daddy’s final crop (he unfortunately died three years ago prematurely after being an exceptional sire). All the other Scat Daddy’s at this sale sold for $100,000 plus (if you want a real good comparison, look at hip #588; also a filly by Scat Daddy with the exact same very fast 10.1 workout time; she sold for $105,000). You may recall a few years ago we purchased a Scat Daddy filly post-sale, coincidently for the exact same price. Her name was Jersey Jules and she won multiple allowance races and $100,000 in purses for us. This filly will be trained by Ben Perkins at Monmouth and hopefully make her debut there this summer (remember, plans as to trainers, races, tracks, etc. are always subject to change with all horses!).

Kenwood Racing Taste of Thoroughbred Ownership Package #38
A lot of time and money invested at OBS April and Fasig-Tipton May sales for two horses, but we got great value with both and we think they’ll be worth it! We did our homework and have two fillies we are thrilled to have in our barn. Both sales were tough to buy at (see articles below) and we ended up with one really nice horse from each as we were unwilling to either overpay or ‘settle’. Better a smaller group of quality horses at the right price than a larger group of lesser quality or a group of overpriced horses when we are investing our own and your money.
Two great fillies together at one great price for our final two year old group of 2017). As always, with a one-time payment and NO future bills ever! Here’s a brief description of the horses in Kenwood Racing group 38
Charming Emmy, Hip# 303, (Sky Mesa – Charm Away) is a really good-looking filly by Sky Mesa, the sire of over 60 stakes winners and three champions. She is a FULL sister to Sapphine Sky, a filly who earned over $325,000, winning stakes at Saratoga, Belmont and Aqueduct in a long, sound career. She worked in a quick 10.2, galloped out in a very quick 22.1, did it easily with speed to spare and is really good looking to boot. She appears quite advanced in her training so we expect to see her race this summer. While there are never guarantees with any horse, when a full sister won multiple stakes in New York and you have a really good-looking filly who worked and galloped out quick, there’s reason for a lot of confidence.

Thanks Mom, HIP #1141, (Majestic Warrior – Sweet Little Lion)
After three days of strike outs at OBS in April, we got a mind blowing bargain at the very end of the sale with the great name of Thanks Mom. Note we had 4 horses we loved at this sale, all very comparable in our ratings; Hip #155 brought $105,000, Hip #551 bought $72,000, Hip #849 brought $85,000, and Thanks Mom brought $30,000. This filly is by Majestic Warrior, a proven sire of 15 stakes winners and 2 champions, out of a young stakes winning mare, and she worked a very quick 10.1 at the sale. She’s a Florida bred eligible for bonus purses against restricted competition in maiden races at Gulfstream Park (remember, plans as to trainers, races, tracks, etc. are always subject to change with all horses!).
