For half the year we race at Hawthorne Race Course and Arlington Park in Chicago, moving to Florida, Arkansas or Louisiana in the winter, and generally we stop over for the spring and fall short meets at Keeneland. We also ship from Chicago to all Kentucky and Indiana tracks for individual races. My daily rate is $85 per horse for this racing circuit. If you're tired of paying more for little in return, please give me a call at 224-323-1139.
During times when I have no horses in my stable, which can occur at the end of the long summer and fall racing at Arlington Park and Hawthorne Race Course as horses are claimed or go on break, I offer my services as a consultant to private stables that need help evaluating and increasing the success of their racing program.
I am a hands-on horseman, not a manager who gives orders from the office. As a consultant I can help a stable become more efficient, cost effective, and successful by teaching better horsemanship, organization and planning when it is lacking. I perform all the duties of an assistant trainer, while I also act as mentor, educator and advisor to my client and employees. If the stable does not have a licensed trainer, I can fill that role or help my client choose the right permanent trainer. I can travel anywhere in the world where my services are needed.
Private consulting services include but are not limited to:
Evaluate soundness and potential ability of the stable's horses.
Recommend individual short and long term plans for each horse based on horse evaluations and client's goals. Please note that when I recommend a trainer for your horses, I only suggest those who I know will be at the stable with eyes on your horses daily.
Develop and train client in system to keep track of each horse's progress.
Evaluate stable's equipment, supplies, bedding, feed and feeding program for quality and cost effectiveness.
Fine tune the stable's daily routine and schedule to complete training and care in a reasonable time while maintaining high standards.
Evaluate stable's employees and train in best practices.
Evaluate farrier and veterinary services for quality and cost effectiveness.
Inform client of internet resources that are available to help track horses, plan races, research sales, and train client in the use of these resources.
Those who may benefit from my services include breeders who prefer to get some horses ready to race at the farm or training center rather than sending every racing age horse to high priced trainers at the racetrack. I can help my clients ensure that good horses do not fall through the cracks or get lost in the crowd of a mega-stable. If you need my services or have questions, please do not hesitate to call me at 224-323-1139 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
