Power your stables’ impact with Big Data Analytics, and true horsemanship.

And, IF YOU’RE NEW TO RACING, enter its exciting social and sports thrills world,

guided by a team with a reputation for performance and integrity.

50 graded stakes horses bought as babies
at average auction prices
last several years alone..

(graded stakes are the small elite group of the very best of stakes racing, like the KY Derby)

….. AND we bought great broodmares including dam of American Pharoah {1st triple crown winner in 37 years},  AND …. we have a reputation for integrity (ask our clients). {Most million dollar and up auction buys flop as racehorses}

We are top of industry experienced horsemen, plus BIG DATA ANALYTICS from over 40 years of rigorous proprietary and published studies on over 50,000 real race racehorse, — studies designed and executed by veterinarians, engineers, Hall of Fame trainers, and biomechanists from Harvard, U. of Penn Vet School, MIT, etc.  Including publications in major refereed scientific journals (scroll down on right to download some of them).

We are for a small, select group of serious clients who understand the difference from cheap imitations —and how to check for real track records, and know the difference between pseudo science, meaningless commonly used statistics, blather fads, wildly exaggerated techs, versus real rigorous studies, and a documented, verifiable track record.

Soooooo, do you want to do what it takes

                                       to actually join the top of racing,

(and have more fun – –  link follows on having fun with racing

(wait ’til race begins!) :

using the very best of Traditional expertise in horsemanship, —-

PLUS –Big Data’s benefits to Biomechanics, motion analysis, cardiovascular scans, genetic testing, race and exercise analysis, and breeding advice– all from immense physical measurement data bases of above variables. {scroll down on right for copies of research papers}

+ solid horsemanship, hard work, experience, common sense, and a reputation for old fashioned integrity — documented successes – not cocktail party blather — not others’ cheap imitations of our gait analysis, heart scan and other tech that we created and patented.

Our team each have over 35 years’ experience, having done every job there is in a racing stable and barn, from groom to jockey to trainer; our researchers were luminaries in their fields and at major universities}

We know and love horses, and we play the game straight.

We know what works, and

     perhaps more important,

                             what does not.

—  as full service bloodstock agents we can also help protect you from the games and rascals in the racehorse auction world 

– {check our references — ask real veterinary or scientific experts — unfortunately the race horse business is full of fraud, including cheap imitations that are whole companies with slick but bogus claims to scientific methods, lots of data that is meaningless,  and with doctored track records – our pet peeve !  so its definitely a caveat emptor environment.}  …..

And our track record is listed in terms of GRADED STAKES,  much tougher than other stakes races. NOTE DEFINITION of — ***GRADED STAKES:  (grades 1, 2 &3) are the top approx 500 toughest and  most prestigious stakes races worldwide each year, and GRADE ONE stakes are the top 100, including Breeders Cup World Championships, Triple Crown classics, etc. They are the highest level of horse racing there is.  {The difference between graded stakes and regular stakes is like chicken salad to chicken s#%t} (and, we BOUGHT these horses, doing the grunt of the  selection job, NOT just listed them on some large supposed recommended list of mostly duds (e.g. competitors recommend as much as a top quartile of an auction) —  and we did it well before they ever raced)

(scroll down for more info, or see “TRACK RECORD”  part of this web site — 

In the last several years alone we have helped our clients buy twenty-one  GRADE 1 stakes horses that have won 32 GRADE ONE Stakes  

{ For EQB news and downloadable copies of our scientific journal publications – scroll down right hand of screen column, or at bottom for mobile devices}


and our record included: 50 graded stakes winning horses, bought for an average of $157,568 median $115,000@(AND we stopped clients from buying those million dollar and high priced duds with hidden biomechanical or internal physical flaws – and from selling their best horses they had bred {See front page center New York Times, June 5, 2015}  . That included 21 grade one stakes winners of 32 grade one stakes, of which 10 were purchased for under $100,000 and 14 for under $200,000  and many were resold at over a million dollars each.

{Just by the way, we also invented the first equine accurate heart rate meter for use in training in 1981 and the first aerodynamic jockey silks in 1979, the first portable electrocardiography (heart) ultrasound machine for research in the early 1980s, the first racehorse digitized gait analysis, etc..}

We’ve bought as youngsters at auction and been on the owners’ team of world champions, Ky Derby wins,  11 Eclipse Awards  and even a TRIPLE CROWN, 

  Our method —we spend the time and the money to take a TEAM to the auctions, look at them all, do hundreds of tests for:  pedigree, patented heart and internal organ scans {we invented the technique, the equipment that does it, and published the major study on it in veterinary journals having worked with major universities -scroll down to see at right column of this page -or bottom for mobile devices},  proprietary DNA tests {developed from our OWN proprietary huge data banks with markers no one else has or could have}, slow motion gait analysis {we invented it for real race horses back in the 1980’s, and are the only ones with huge studies on real race horses at real race tracks published in prestigious veterinary journals – see right column of this page} ,our own large scale published research (on many thousands of racehorses), and our logarithm velocity decay fatigue curves on pace in actual races {data bases going back decades}

    and more…

(Note —  CAVEAT EMPTOR — there’s lots of pseudo science out there – we can show PROOF of our methods and results to you – ask experts – don’t just believe all the slick marketing of pseudo science out there by those without the specific training, experience, or any real research }

Experience and integrity at auctions:

Many in the business long enough can point
to a good horse or two they have been a part of
somehow. The percentage of their
successes is much more important,
and much harder to attain, let alone to do it
year after year

“Experts” who were right once,
cannot usually deliver what you want now.

We are mindful of all the very good horsemen
at the top of the racing industry, and our goal
was always to be accepted as their peer,
—  but to do it our way.
Now, thank God, we’ve earned our way there.

Major owners, trainers, and stables — household names in the sport — will tell you we are for real –they know about  EQB’s singular union of traditional horsemanship and cutting-edge innovation to identify exceptional Thoroughbred talent at major auctions. Our ability to find overlooked, undervalued contenders empowers EQB clients to purchase top talent for less and ultimately train more breakout champions from fewer horses.

A True Edge . . .
Recent champions and grade one stakes winners like: American PharoahEskendereya, Big World, , No Parole, Keeper of the Stars, Solomini, Stephankis’s Kitten, Tonalist, Forever Together, Informed Decision, Zensational, Jaycito, Pioneer of the Nile, Nehro, Rightly So, General Quarters, Madcap Escapade,  A Z Warrior. Kentucky Derby winners like American Pharoah, Monarchos and Thunder Gulch. Household names in the Sport of Kings. And leading active stallions now that we bought as yearlings. They are but a few of the graded stakes winners EQB has helped discover and continues to identify year after year – long before they ever run a single race.

Superior Technology
Over the past 25 years EQB has a amassed a set of huge unique proprietary data bases behind a suite of unsurpassed equine evaluation technologies that include gait and (patented) cardiovascular analysis that can identify great champions long before they ever race. These were developed (and published in major refereed scientific journals) with the help of leading scientists at major universities including the head of Cardiology at the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School, a senior professor of statistics at Rutgers University, MDs, locomotion specialists from  Harvard, and engineers from M.I.T. We invented the first accurate racehorse heart rate meters, first portable ultrasound exams, first aerodynamic jockey silks (2 years before Danskin), etc.
