IronHorse Racing Stable

Ironhorse Racing Stable purchased and campaigned multiple stakes-winning champion Bucchero who is now finding success as a top stallion in North America. Momos, who was purchased as a two-year-old, competed last year in the Breeders Cup for Ironhorse. Both colts were purchased as two-year-olds and managed by the Ironhorse team.

Ironhorse is offering opportunities for you to join them in finding the next champion who will begin their career right at Canterbury Park. Their no-mark up and no management fees keep initial investments low so you can be a 5% or more owner in a potential 2022 Kentucky Derby or Breeders Cup winner.

Participation Level: $2,500/5% share per horse

Little Blue Bird Stables

Little Blue Bird Stables original partners and managing partner Joe Tartaglia were horse racing fans who met on Twitter (“little blue bird”, get it?}. They love the game of horse racing and are now providing ownership opportunities for fans who like to have fun, play the horses, and are looking to help the game prosper.

Little Blue Bird Stables aims to bring integrity, professionalism, and transparency to racehorse ownership. They have surrounded themselves with great horsemen and long-time fans/bettors to build a deliberate and thoughtful approach to ownership at reasonable investment levels – a recipe that they believe will best maximize their partners’ chance for success.
