Standardbred Horse Racing

Those who know me, know that years ago I owned a large standardbred training facility and had a number of horses. Okay often over a dozen. However, negative impacts after 9 11 caused the racing industry to nearly collapse and I was one of many who could no longer stay in the industry. The cost to keep a race horse in training can be about $5,000 a horse and if they are not earning purses that all comes out of the owners pocket.

When I originally wrote this article bak in May 2017, I owned 1% of 2 horses. I have recently expanded to where i not have 1% in five horses. To keep my followers ( Ihope there are some out there) informed on the new Charles Davis Stables I have created a new website. Please visit it. just follow the link to the Charles Davis Stables 1% horses
