Frequently Asked Questions

What makes your syndicate different from the other ones out there?

While there a number of excellent partnership groups currently out there, we will specialize in acquiring race-ready horses through private purchases and by focusing on 2-year-old in training sales. We are not experts at picking out unproven yearlings or at buying European imports. Our expertise is watching races from all over the country and trying to find runners with untapped potential at realistic prices, then placing them with high-profile, winning trainers.

Do you mark up the purchase price of a horse before selling it to your syndicate members? 

Absolutely not. What we pay for a horse is what our partners pay. We make a small commission on the purchase price and a small commission on purse earnings but we don't make money unless our partners make money.

How many partners are we talking about? Does every partner have a share in each horse?   

While we hope to acquire a vast number of partners over the years, each horse is treated as its own syndicate, with a limited number of partners on that specific horse. There will likely never be more than five partners to a horse, which gives us a "higher risk, higher reward" business model.

How are the costs divided?

Each partner pays his own proportionate share (based on percentage of ownership) of monthly expenses. Trainer fees, veterinary bills, transportation costs, bookkeeping and all other expenses related to the caretaking of a horse are billed monthly.

What kind of track record do you have?   

Brett Lindenbaum has been one of the West Coast's top bloodstock agents for the last five years, picking out and assisting in the purchase of such Grade I winners as Tough Tiz's Sis, Cry and Catch Me, Sinister Minister, and Downthedustyroad. Lindenbaum will utilize his excellent personal and business relationships with top trainers such as Bob Baffert as he continues to find and purchase future stakes stars for Summit Racing LLC.
