Sam Lyons Guest On Racing.com Panel
Dec 06, 2018
Grand Syndicates Racing Manager Sam Lyons joined host Shane Anderson on Racing.com this week to talk about race horse syndication.
Along with fellow syndicator David Azzopardi, Lyons discussed various topics including what type of yearlings they target at the sales, the benefits of being in a syndicate and various other industry issues.
One of the biggest challenges that syndicators face is trying to find bargain yearlings that can produce the goods on the racetrack, and Grand Syndicates certainly has the runs on the board in this department.
Star Grand Syndicates mare Khutulun was purchased for just $16,000 and has amassed almost $500,000, Man Of His Word cost just $10,000 for $450,000 in winnings while current stable star Behemoth was bought for just $6000. All of these shares were sold for $1000 again proving that you don't need to outlay a fortune to be involved in a good horse.
