The WV Stables Co-Owner Club

is a program that gives ANYONE an introduction to horse racing ownership, from broodmares to horses of racing age to retirement.
In all cases, Wasabi Ventures Stables is a part owner in the horses we acquire.
Racing
→ We choose race horses that we want to own and race.
→ It is also a low risk opportunity for the co-owners. They will never have ongoing fees or markups. WV Stables is based on running a fun entertainment business and getting new owners into this exciting sports team ownership opportunity.

Broodmares
→ We choose broodmares that we believe will produce winning foals.
→ This program has quarterly settlements that account for revenues and expenses. This often requires a Club member to have a quarterly payment that is based on the percentage of the broodmare that you co-own.

A Co-Owner pays a $25 fee to become part of the WV Stables Co-Owner Club.

→ The Club gives members access to WV Stables education and entertainment programming.
→ The Club membership allows the co-owner to select a .50% to 4.99% stake in any horse that Wasabi Ventures Stables adds to its stable. The co-owner will have complete visibility and transparency into the horses and stories of each.
→ When a co-owner selects a horse, the price for the horse is a transparent percentage of the price of the horse plus a $99/horse management fee.
→ Wasabi Ventures Stables and its partners will be retaining at least 20% of each horse claimed. We are completely in on each horse. This assures all co-owners we are completely invested as well and only choosing horses for the program we believe in.
→ Wasabi Ventures Stables will be targeting horses in the $5,000 to $30,000 range, so a minimum ownership will be between $124 and $249 (Price of the horse plus the $99 management fee).
→ A co-owner will decide which horses he/she is part of. He/She gets to pick his/her horses from the horses offered in the program.
→ With the WV Stables Co-Owner Club, there are absolutely NO bills or other payments to be made after the initial one-time payment. When the horse ends its WV Stables racing career or is sold, the bills come out of the initial payment you made, but you will NEVER be required to pay any additional funds.
→ At the end of the racing career of the horse, Wasabi Ventures Stables will send a complete and transparent financial story and any profits will be sent to the co-owner.

Each club member can join as many or few horses as he or she would like

Mission Statement

Wasabi Ventures Stables has a dual focus. For the humans, we seek to provide a fun entertainment business that brings people into a simple horse ownership opportunity. For the horses, we want to provide opportunities for our horses to shine on the racetrack or as broodmares and also ensure a safe retirement when the time comes. As such, we have partnered with a number of after care programs that help find homes for our retired race horses. We also put our money where our mouth is and make donations to these groups to help support the good work they are doing.

Retired Racehorse Project


1. What does the Retired Racehorse Project do? At its core, the mission of the Retired Racehorse Project (RRP) is to increase the value and demand for Thoroughbreds after racing as riding and show horses. We do this through a number of ways, including putting on the annual Thoroughbred Makeover and National Symposium (the largest and most lucrative retraining competition for recently retired racehorses in the world), publishing Off-Track Thoroughbred Magazine (a quarterly magazine on-par with MidAtlantic Thoroughbred or Blood-Horse, but focused on all topics related to Thoroughbreds outside of (and often including) racing); putting on demonstrations, clinics and seminars around the country for equestrian audiences; maintaining the Bloodline Brag (the industry’s largest database of off-track talent in Thoroughbreds), by engaging our more than 160,000 social media followers and more.

MidAtlantic Horse Rescue


1. Where are you based out of? Our main farm is located in Chesapeake City, MD - there we do some rehab, most of the retraining and adoptions from this location. We have satellite farms in Thurmont MD (rehab), Westminster MD (retraining) and Salley SC (retraining). 2. How long has your group been active? Ginny Suarez and I started in September 2002 with 3 horses on a rented 3-acre field with a shed. We built our program gradually from there. Today we have a permanent home on 158 acres along the Sassafras River, just south of Chesapeake City MD. The main farm is home to approximately 40 horses, and we have about a dozen other horses out at our satellite farms. We adopt out about 60 horses a year. We have a small number of sanctuary horses as well.

Beyond The Wire


Wasabi Ventures Stables recently had an interview with Beyond The Wire, an industry-wide initiative between the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, the Maryland Jockey Club, the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and Maryland jockeys, that is designed to facilitate safe and enriching placements for retired Maryland based racehorses. What are some factors that can contribute to a horse retiring? Horses retire for a number of reasons. Some are just too slow to be competitive, some sustain injuries and still others have raced for years and the owner and trainer make a decision to let the horse go on to new, enriching activities. 2. What happens when a horse is accepted into your program? When an owner or trainer calls me to retire a horse, there is an intake form they fill out. I then meet the vet at the horse’s stall and we do an evaluation. I also take a picture to show our Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredited facilities and to put on our website. Once I have gathered all of the necessary information, I contact the TAA facilities to secure a spot. Last, I set up shipping and send the horse off to start their new life!
