interest in race horses has developed over time. I began
with a large racing partnership, Cyberspace Racing Team.
I think large racing partnerships are a great way to
start. They let you get a feel for racing while spreading
the financial risk among many partners. It is an opportunity
to get your feet wet and
enjoy all the benefits and excitement of owning a race
horse. I then started on my own by claiming a few horses
at Turf Paradise. A year or so later, I bought my first
horse at a yearling sale. This horse is the stakes winning
mare, Silk N Diamonds. Silky is a super mare with loads
of heart and drive. I then decided to buy a few mares
and raise a few babies. I have enjoyed the race horses
a great deal. Much of the credit goes to Sarina Obergfell,
the one and only trainer my horses have known. She is
great with the horses and takes excellent care of each
one. Thanks to Sarina for all her time and effort training
my horses and showing me the ropes of horse ownership.
My biggest highlights have been winning my first stakes
race with Silky and going to the 2004 and 2005 Kentucky
Derby with my good friends.
