Whether you are interested in short-term or long-term involvement, broodmare investments are a good choice. Compared to other segments of the Thoroughbred industry, such as 2-year-olds in training and racehorses, broodmares offer a relatively safe investment with less risk and less cost. Broodmare investments provide more opt-out opportunities to earn rewards.
For instance, you can buy a maiden (or open) mare, breed her to a marketable stallion and then resell her in foal for a quick turnaround on your investment. Another option is to wait and sell the resultant foal as a weanling or a yearling. You can also buy a mare already in foal and go with either of the aforementioned choices.
On the long-term side of the ledger, many people derive great satisfaction in being involved with the breeding process – from planning the mating, to the birth of the foal, to watching the foal grow. There is also the opportunity to build a quality broodmare band and sell and/or race their resultant foals.
Again this is the great thing about broodmare investments – the marketplace is not limited to one avenue such as the 2-year-old in training sales. Instead, your investment has a chance to return rewards in all four markets – broodmare, weanling, yearling and 2- year-olds.
It all begins with the broodmare. Let us show you how.
