This was/is an outstanding concept, driven by the right guy to sell harness racing to new people. What it does not address is how to keep them coming back. As long as I have been alive, winning is the greatest motivator to stay and reinvest. There are some who have a desire to stay at it, no matter the cost. This fractional ownership is not the vehicle for them. Either way, great job by The Stable.ca

Definitely an unfortunate happening for the stable...

I am a stable supporter & think if you are not rooting for the stable then you are not a true harness fan.
Everyone is entitles to their opinion on the virtues of fractional ownership but the bottom line being it has brought a wave of new people into the game.
personally have brought 3 people (including one with book the bet doh!)...

Have to laugh at some of the posts...Just a tremendous amount of jealousy in this game..not to mention a giant heap of losers.

my post has nothing to do with guilt or innocence or extenuating circumstances.... ....it is about the frustration of those guilty of positives, especially high profile guys, getting it swept under the rug..........I referenced Auciello...he was finally given a 60 day suspension aug20/oct20 from a horse that was on the suspended list since the winter...but lo and behold he is still racing his stable........... once again MacDonald will not have to pay one dime or see any time off, not because of "extenuating circumstances" but rather because of the regulators unwilling or unable to do their jobs

Don't hurt yourself mcgyver.

What, Burke is listed as trainer at 20 tracks so that makes you feel better.

Amy is 100% training the Canada horses-
My point was Anthony is still the ceo of the entire operation..

& if you think , wait what is your point, that  is the reason for harness racing on the decline, then maybe they should do more testing on the Stickney air

The Stable is a great initiative and has been doing very well. Anthony should promptly address this publicly and with straight talk. The whole appeal process is flawed; should be resolved within three weeks in all cases.

NO, Amy is NOT training the horses. She MAY be listed, but SHE IS NOT the one calling the shots. Do the checks get made out to Amy Mccarthy? We BOTH know that's not the case. IF harness racing wanted to be REAL AND DO something about the beards as trainers-all they have to do is follow the money. But it IS pretty funny that people are so nonchalant about it to admit it on the internet. People are tired of trainers getting positive after positive and it's just list a beard and back to business. Then the beard gets a positive and its time for a beard for the beard. I couldn't care less about the Stickney air, but I'm sure it stinks as always. I'm 900 miles from the Stickney air.  ngc3 ngc3   Maybe YOU enjoy it.  73cv.2 73cv.2 73cv.2 73cv.2

I think a few of them are with Andrew Harris like the one in the PA superfinal (trotter) and the one in the NY superfinal  and one in the Ohio superfinal - I think a few bigger barns dont even have that many and I am sure you could find their count of winners versus non-winners of yearlings at a lower ratio.  Give them some credit - tough concept probably

Very tough to get quality yearlings when you have a smaller budget than others. 

At least thestable.ca is getting more people involved.  Ownership for sure and if some of these members bet a few dollars then even better!

There is plenty of fake news after reading these posts...
In fact not one horse has broken down...most did qualify..some were stopped with due to injury like Lima Son who had won a 40 k OHSS under wraps in his 2nd start.
GoBlue points out that Lima Son has a shit pedigree but if you did a little research the 2nd dam produced Minibar- a highly productive mare that includes some wholesome trotters like gruden..MyMvp was a first time sire from Cantab Hall who I have always liked...Yes a bit of a crap shoot but there is nothing for sure at any price.

I am not here as a fluffer for the stable....but have 100% enjoyed my dealings with the Stable & will be back for more next year..

Stan,
no doubt a positive is not something to wear proudly but it is what it is...

Watching harness racing & seeing Tyler George, Bellamy, Stewart at Hoosier have horses run off the screen..It just doesn't pass the eye test.
I am no chemist & when it comes to nanograms etc out of my league..I watch those horses race & sorry but these horses are not enhanced.
Don't disagree that racing has a medication problem but how do the big guys sail along while the little guys are the ones who seem to get popped.

or use that $1k and had bought into one of their horses that is making money (and there are a few), I went and reviewed his success at auction etc. Hit or Miss
if you had used that on Zeppelin Bi - you would have had about 10% of a horse that has made $30+k and in the super final
or
you would have gotten about 3% of a Muscle Hill filly and not had a start yet
or
you could have gotten 1/800th of that trotting colt that cant even stay flat (tactical landing) (I know it isnt in thestable.ca but you get the point).

Doesn't seem to be very transparent with the financials.

How can you take home a yearling from |Harrisburg for 13k (not even paid for) and piece out at 39k a month later?

How come if I'm in real estate or the financial market, even a novice investor can access historical pricing data. Not so much in the harness industry.

Just ask Cirillo about AMac LOL. Changing horses name and winning OSS Gold Events when told horse would never race.

Correct me if I am wrong please, but the sales results are available for the Harrisburg sale minutes after the horse sells for all to see. How much more transparent can that be?  If a buyer wants to give AMac a profit, that is their prerogative isn't it?

And most people know how to google to get almost any info on this planet, including sale prices. I don't imagine AMac would think for a minute that his owners would not find out how much the horse sold for. My guess is he might have even informed any potential owner the price that the horse sold for before they made their decision?

Doesn't seem to be very transparent with the financials.

How can you take home a yearling from |Harrisburg for 13k (not even paid for) and piece out at 39k a month later?

How come if I'm in real estate or the financial market, even a novice investor can access historical pricing data. Not so much in the harness industry.

Just ask Cirillo about AMac LOL. Changing horses name and winning OSS Gold Events when told horse would never race.

the financials are 100% transparent...the market decides the horses price..
I can buy a share for $250 & ask $2,500 a month later but doesn't mean I will get it..A share is only worth what someone will pay for it..& based on watching the training miles etc..it is not uncommon for the prices to move both ways..

If he buys a horse for $15,000- each share is $150 to start..There is ZERO mark up...I know exactly what he pays for each horse..

Again, each person has the right to believe or not in the concept but to spread bs for the sake of it is just wrong.
I have brought 3 new owners into the game over the past year & hopefully 2 more by end of the year.

I wish you the best of luck. I didn't say the concept itself isn't good.

However, when the Harrisburg sale was over they put up a list of yearlings to buy into and using 1.40 as the exchange rate (spot rate 1.3541 day of) there were a few that were really marked up. I tried finding the page using the wayback google archive. A friend and I remarked how their value could change that much.

That's beyond the arbitrary value placed on them in the first place. The underbidder set the true price for them.

Anyways, I was looking on the website. It only mentions "fees" charged to your monthly bill, not a certain set charge for services rendered. For example, shipping to Georgian, New York, PA etc. I thought the point of the syndicate was to have more cost certainty, I don't see it. What about shoeing, paddocks?

And so your telling me the only way for me to cash out is to have the horse race well and someone will pay me more for my share on the secondary market. Unlike if I own the horse whole I receive the purse cheques and pay the trainer at the end of the month, I am still receiving cash dividends along the way.

I know that you shouldn't totally look at investing in racehorses as a monetary thing, there are side benefits like entertainment, seeing and jogging your horse, etc etc. but I'm still looking for some type of return on capital bc eventually someone will be caught holding the bag and their shares will be worthless while the purse earnings will be eaten in bills so there never will be a distribution of earnings.

I have a friend who got out the biz and he's had 2-3 world champs but eventually he got tired of losing 3-400k a year trying to beat the juice monkies and he says the game has lost its social appeal...

Dan Clements ran a fractional ownership group about a decade ago. It started out well but went downhill when they tried to price their homebreds well above market value and not many turned out on the track.

So if you're getting a fair deal, I have no problem with that. I just know whats been done in the past and remind people about the wolf in sheeps clothing.
Title: Re: thestable.ca
Post by: Powerful Patricks Ghost on August 30, 2017, 10:44:12 AM
The fractional ownership idea is really interesting if you literally treat it like an exchange. It wouldn't be hard to set up a site or app where you could buy shares of a horse with a bid/ask spread like any other type of security. There are likely problems to arise (regulations,taxes, etc.) with that but someone with the time/money could theoretically set it up.

Can't use the "piss excuse" since humans can't excrete alcohol. Beer is given to some horses as an old-fashioned remedy for a few ailments (no pun intended) but they would have had to given the horse beer very close to race time in order to test positive? There is also ethanol in cold medicines, antidiarrheals, as well as a few others.

I don't get why everyone bashes this guy....

Watching the Ohio Championships, which were represented by a few from the The Stable, most of the other horses are owned by big number partnerships. If you watch the runners, there are dozens of these large syndicate own partnership companies. You will see multiple partnership companies even own one horse.

As far as him starting out with a bunch but only a few make money ÖÖ. I can tell you every major stable has probably 4 lose money for every 1 that makes money..... Burke, Br Brown, Takter, AlagnaÖ.. and on an on..... At least with the partnership it's low money risk for a chance...

I know there are tons of huge/deep pocket member here on Plop that can afford a 50k yearling. But this is a chance to get some new owners or ham and eggers like myself to buy in.

Stan. actually made some good points.... But it seems like the business model of the industry has changed over the past 5 years. Syndicates are the thing, in harness and the runners. In our sport, the business is dwindling down to a dozen or so trainers that dominate everything. Not just at the stake level, but also at the condition and claiming level racing horses at 3,4,5 tracks a night. Watched a stake race at the Red Mile for 3yo colts. 7 horse field that Alagna had 4 and Takter had 3. this is bad for everyone including the gamblers due to whomever wins, they will think the fix was for THAT horse to win and the rest are a setup.

I just think the business model of the sport has changed from ownership partnerships, to trainers dominating, to tracks being funded by casino's and in McDonalds case he has found a new way to market his skills. I saw he bought seven at the latest Ohio sale. probably has all the shares bought and paid for..... If it's not him, it would be someone else.

Post by: horses first on September 16, 2018, 11:21:26 AM
Dink is right about partnerships. All these top horses seem to have 3 4 or 5 owners a horse. A trainer usually owns a part. Then these owners have more fire power to buy more yearlings because they are spreading just 20-25% a horse. If they usually buy 5 they can be part 12 or 15 horses and nothing changes on cost level. I noticed something at the Ohio sale and prices thestable.ca paid and then what the actual higher cost was to syndicate. Does anyone know the extra fees?

Standardbred racing as an owner is just another form of gambling.
People on here seem to think, if you spend big money on a 2 year old and give it to a good trainer, just sit back and wait for the cheques.   If Casie Coleman owned 100% of all the horses she trains, she would be broke in 2 years, even with the Sportswriter stud money coming in.   All the big trainers are simply The Stable at a higher price point.   It's like a casino, there are 100 $5, $10 and $20 tables and there are 5 tables in the high stakes room.   Lot's of $100k yearlings never win enough to pay the training bills, never mind return the $100k and some $10k yearling purchases make enough money to pay all the bills and have some left over.    Obviously, your odds go up with a $100 yearling, but so does the financial risk.       I would love someone to document the last 5 years of any sale, showing the average earnings of yearlings purchased for $50k or more and the average earnings of yearlings purchased for 10k to 49k.

If you want to share in the excitement and experience of owning a horse then go for it! Understand that it is entertainment and you will certainly pay for it! Keep in mind that as a minority owner you will be along merely for the ride as you will have absolutely no say in the management and decision making regarding the horse!

I suppose the Swandre guys where they any different since there where just 4 owners All in IL did that money travel back and forth or where they paid by Hoosier?

I bought in on Lincoln James and while I have never had partners before this is interesting to me. I only own a small share but I will tell you the communications with the owners is is 1000% better than with any trainer I,ve ever used. An e-mail daily and Anthony video blogs on every horse in the stable once a week. Would recommend it to any new owner. Someone asked what it costs for a racehorse.Total including HST is 2865 CDN per month. 1% is 28.65 per month.If your in on a racehorse like I am we swing for 24G every week.

DannyBoy   ....    Sounds like you are having a great time for less than many people spend on smokes each month.    No idea why so many people are down on this idea.    It's just inexpensive gambling, but a lot more fun. 

To all the haters  .....
"A Mac is ripping everyone off"   .....    at $28 / month, how much can any one person be affected   
"A Mac is a terrible trainer"   ......    he has over a 100 horses in training, spread out over 3 or 4 trainers  ....   are they all bad?    And most trainers are as good or bad as their stock.

I own 10 - 20 % of some horses.     None are with the Stable.

Post by: horses first on September 19, 2018, 07:15:52 PM
Well what I liked was following the videos on Sat when the horses trained or when they where jogging early on. You get detail and a weekly breakdown. If your training babies down you for the most part don't get any feedback unless your the one calling for updates. I think by far and large this was a great start early on for the stable. It's pretty tough when your looking for value and not paying up for other reasons. They had a big % of horses racing in Sire stakes and some GC events. Not too mention the one being sold for big $$$$. It's hard to buy yearlings when you don't have the partners to spread on 4 or 5 horses. In this case if you like something they bought then you can jump in. Nothing's perfect and nothing in this sport is fair but this gives a person to get in and not go broke. There has been some good detail so thanks to those who shared. tmbz1

Wiggles    .....   Of course there are more.    The hit rate for buying yearlings aren't great odds.     You can also list $100k purchases from good trainers that never even made it to the track as 2 year olds, or never made it to the track at all.   You can list $100k yearlings that never made back 1/4 of what they were purchased for or never broke their maiden. 

Again, you are convinced it is a ripoff.
Answer the earlier question.
How much does Cassie charge and how much does The Stable charge.

I think your rip off argument is fake news and you should really tell us why you hate this trainer or his idea so much !!

Yep --- how many did Burke start with ? How about Takter or Br Brown..... all good, maybe the best in the business right now... How many did not turn a profit... Do you think their average purchase price is higher than the Stable ?
how about the bills ? Do you think these trainers charge more than the Stable ?

Not sure why many have a hard on for someone trying something different.....The industry is shrinking with owners, deep pocket guys going with about a dozen trainers..... Stake races that are filled with only two trainers. A regular Joe like myself, going to college, has a family, and I could afford to buy a couple % into a horse..... Seems like it something different, maybe work, maybe not....

Wiggles you can make that same argument with all big stables. More misses then hits. However it did seem the stable had good success in IN, OH, PA, and I don't follow ON that much to know. With pacer and trotters. There also succeeding at a top level in those sire programs without buying those high priced yearlings. Seems like by reports also the cost are a lot lower then your east coast training bills. As a owner you also get a weekly report via a video rundown of all the horses with weekly drone footage of them jogging down and then training down. I'm not sure how the big time trainers cater to their owners with being in the loop weekly and seeing your horse on the track. Maybe it's time for these trainers and there high cost monthly bills step up and offer the same. Then owners don't have to wait for qualifiers to work through the bs.

ANYONE NEED A JOB?

Good evening,

I prepared a video Tuesday explaining our open house coming up on December 9th and some important infrastructure we are looking to implement here at thestable.ca.
We will be overhauling and upgrading all our operating systems and platforms.
I was worried I wasn't articulating myself well enough in regards to why exactly it was so important we impliment this. So I reached out to some of you looking for feedback. What I received was exactly what I was looking for:

*what was the cost
*how would it be paid for
*why do we need it
*where will the money be used
*how will it affect us

All great questions.

*The infrastructure to be put in place will cost $170,000 in 2019. Some of it is already in place.

* hiring a business lead will provide me more time to focus on horse management. This will enable me to further optimize the potential of the horses at TheStable.ca and thus deliver a better on site experience to both horses and clients.
* solidifying our internet presence will allow for a more intuitive and consistent experience for clients. 
* updating your accounting software will improve accuracy and timing of bills.

These are only some of the jobs this person will handle.

Where is the mark up? They purchase a horse it gets converted from US to Canadian on there site and you have to pay the 13% hst tax. Know some get marked up if they haven't sold out and have daily bills adding up after a month. Most or all syndication in the thoroughbred game charge a % mark up on any purchase yearling or private sale. I'm not even sure he charges a travel fee or fees for staying at the sales for 3-5 days. There are many trainers who do charge that on your monthly bill. Famous quote from a past trainer back home "no more freebies". Anyway I've jumped in to give it a try on more transparency with a drone view to watch them get there jog miles then training miles. Instead of "doing great for 6 months then after May 15th the wheels fall off. A owner never gets a fair look until that 1st qualifier. Race lines never lie.

Well WW it is a tough business no doubt. There is skepticism is all aspects of horse racing. I had 5% in a thoroughbred bought in Europe with a syndication and it was a big dollar purchase after a Group 2 win. Safe to say she had to race a couple more times with the old owning group combined and she pretty much sucked. Brought her to CA wasn't any better then put her into foal with a sire with 125k stud fee. Then sold her at auction for 300k. Only to find out just after it was a buy back. Who knows the real value. I had enough gave my 5% for nothing to stop the bleeding. This sport isn't all rosesby I like this direction just for the fact it may shake up other long entrenched trainers on how they do and handle business.

I was at the track the other night and while in the bar with a few guys I knew we were talking about the Stable and amongst us all who have been in the game a long time the consensus among us was if you get a good one in this game your lucky. Then a fellow who was listening near us said he got involved with Anthony right in the beginning and was in half a dozen and they all were no good and he got out. He said he took bigger pieces each time just on what Anthony said and it didn't make any difference they still were duds. He said it ended with an argument where Anthony said you got in and you lost, so what there was no guarantees. Like I said before knowing any of this that IMO this is not going to end well.

I was at the track the other night and while in the bar with a few guys I knew we were talking about the Stable and amongst us all who have been in the game a long time the consensus among us was if you get a good one in this game your lucky. Then a fellow who was listening near us said he got involved with Anthony right in the beginning and was in half a dozen and they all were no good and he got out. He said he took bigger pieces each time just on what Anthony said and it didn't make any difference they still were duds. He said it ended with an argument where Anthony said you got in and you lost, so what there was no guarantees. Like I said before knowing any of this that IMO this is not going to end well.

What part of what you said reaffirms your belief it will not end well?

Its a business entity, so probably not her name on a check.  I wrote my check to Microsoft not Bill Gates when I upgraded from a commodore 64 - so this shouldn't surprise anyone.
If your owners are writing you a check directly, good for you.

no...you are writing a check to a retailer who in turn writes a check to their distributor who in turn may write a check to the middle man or Microsoft directly...any way you turn the table it still goes to bill gates in the end and in the end it is going to the corporation to pay its members and employees, in this case to continue the corrupt harness game

From what I have seen many breeders sending the stable there shit  hopping he can convince the buyers they are worth more then a buggy horse    I say if he can sell the fools out there a horse so beit  the horses are only worth what someone will pay for them.   The more shit he can sell the more shit he will get the next year from the breeders.  Win win for some.  All is good carry on

Good evening everyone,


Many of you know by now that Kelly Spencer is now the Director of Business Development for thestable.ca moving forward.

That is really just a fancy way of saying she will be helping me sail the ship, fly the plane and stir the Kool Aid. Kelly has been widely renowned for her work as the Manager Of Marketing & Communications at Grand River Raceway for the past 15 years and we are incredibly lucky to have her.

She shares our drive and enthusiasm, and fully recognises that we are reshaping horse racing, and paving the way forward for everyone behind us. Most importantly, she is customer-focused and understands the experience we are delivering to you, our valued clients. She was a 1% owner in White Tiger this year, so she truly comprehends #ownalittleloveitalot.
 
Kelly has been a part of our success behind the scenes for quite a while and is ready to hit the ground running with some major projects in the New Year.

Join me in welcoming her aboard at kelly@thestable.ca

- many expensive yearlings never make back their trucking bill
- as many inexpensive yearlings make good money
- there are plenty in between
- judging horses from video and maybe a farm visit is fun to do, but not really important
- monster pedigrees bring big money and more often than not, fall into category 1 at the top
- if you love hanging around the training barn and the track, it is like being on a hockey team  ...  a great time
- if you got into the game to get rich, you're a fool
- anyone with a brain knows those are the rules, and there is no way around them
- if you love horses and get a thrill during a stretch drive even though your horse has probably spit the bit, get in

Are you saying guarantees make a difference?

They make more of an interest in betting--which actually drives the sport-than fractional ownership subsidized by slots.

I will agree with one thing Macdonald said--the marketing teams employed by the harness racing industry are horrendous. I can see one reason being that almost every job in harness racing is a nepotism hire. Like hiring someone who clearly knows next to nothing about social media as your 'social media marketing director'. If you cannot  explain with CPC means or something basic like SEO--you shouldn't be hired for that position.

Harness racing reminds me of poker rooms in vegas prior to rounders coming out.   7 sharks at the table and 1 fish.  New blood has no shot.  People complain about take outs but the issue is most bettors are veterans so your competing against other people who know what they are doing.

How as soon as one sees a drug drug or medication violation, they assign the worst possible infraction. I would not throw out the only bright spot of growth in the industry for a minor infraction. Harness racing never was and never will be a pure sport. Those who demand it be , will always be disappointed.

harness is like sports
to compete and win the horses/athletes need the best help they can get in terms of supplements etc( note i did no say drugs) to train and perform at high levels
it is a fine line between what is an acceptable supplement and what is on the banned list in sports and racing
note i am not comparing supplements/vitamins etc to some of the more serious drug offences that take place
this is a general response on the topic not related to the stable per say

Promote that. Bring in big business people and they will have events at the track and explain the real business that we are in. Big business people love to throw money around.
