Buying or Selling a Racehorse

When investing in a racehorse it is important to understand the risk and cost involved. The initial purchase of the horse is just the start.
Seeing your own horse win or watching the morning work-outs at the track, is all part of the thrill that drives this industry. However it is important to have a team in place that you trust, to help navigate some of the pitfalls and enhance the opportunities and experiences available.
