Winston Churchill said there is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.
We don't think he was referring to racehorse ownership but he should have been.
Nothing can match the heart-pounding thrill of watching your horse charge down the stretch on his way to victory. But there's so much more to the experience: Anticipation. Build Up. Adrenaline Rush. Cheering. Exaltation. And yes, sometimes disappointment. It's Life rolled into an unforgettable two-minute roller coaster ride of emotions.
Join us on that ride as we “Reach for the Summit”.
Excerpt from Sports Illustrated article on Bob Baffert:
"It starts with American Pharoah. He is owned by Ahmed Zayat, an Egyptian-born, New Jersey-based businessman who was first introduced to Baffert by bloodstock agent Brett Lindenbaum in 2005. “I had known Zayat for 20 years at that point,” says Lindenbaum. “He’s very competitive, very emotional, and at the time he was buying horses like crazy. I said to him ‘What are you doing? You’re spending money like it’s the last year of your life.’ He said, ‘I’m trying to win the Derby.’ I said, ‘You’re not going to win the Derby until you meet Bob Baffert.’ ” Lindenbaum got Baffert and Zayat together in 2006 on a filly named Point Ashley, who won two stakes races." --Tim Layden, Sports Illustrated Apr. 27, 2015...for full article click here
Here's what our partners say about Summit Racing:
"Jeff and I have enjoyed working with Brett and Bob at Summit Racing. Not only do they know what to look for in racehorses, but they also have a broad network of people around the country bringing them horses for their consideration. Most importantly, however, we know that we are working with individuals who have our best interests at heart. They want us to be successful with our investments in Summit horses and, thereby, build a lasting relationship. We value their integrity." --Beverly Lewis of Robert and Beverly Lewis Trust, two-time Kentucky Derby winners and owners of six Eclipse Award winners.
