The achievement of the Shooting Star's success is built upon four decades of expertise,
and expert equine developement.
The idea to form Shooting Star Thoroughbreds came together over a casual lunch conversation with family and friends at a horse sale. It was immediately obvious what a perfect fit starting a thoroughbred syndicate would be for Mary Lightner, who comes from a family of lifelong horse people. She made the decision to move forward that day and hasn't looked back.
OUR SYNDICATE IS NOW 18 MONTHS OF FUN!
Teaming up with Shooting Star Thoroughbreds will pair you with one of the most competitive teams in the business. In five short years, SST has amassed over 1 million dollars in earnings and is a multiple graded stakes placed owner.
THOROUGHBRED PARTICIPATION IS AFFORDABLE
Many racing enthusiasts only watch the races from their television or the grandstand, thinking Thoroughbred participation is too expensive or they don't have the experience to get involved. Investing with Shooting Star lets you move from spectator to owner by purchasing a fractional interest in a thoroughbred package of horses. We take care of all of the management responsibilities while you enjoy watching your horse run.
We feel sure that you will enjoy the entertainment aspect of the game of Thoroughbred Racing, while appreciating the whole experience. If you obtain your owner's license, you will have full access to the stable area to visit your horses during morning training or after a race, free entry to the racetrack and paddock privileges on race day that will hopefully culminate in a win and trip to the winner's circle with your friends and family.
Not only do you have the THRILL of being in the game, you have a chance to earn a RETURN on your INVESTMENT.
HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE
Shooting Star Thoroughbreds would like to invite you to participate in one or more of our thoroughbred syndicates. Joining with us affords you access to the best bloodstock agents, trainers, vets and other service providers in the business.
