Commonwealth began as a dream to experience the best of horse racing, not as a fan, but as an owner. For the last 18 months, our dedication to that dream has led us to today’s groundbreaking news.
We are beyond excited to announce a formal partnership with WinStar Farm, one of America’s most prominent breeding and racing farms, made famous for their 2018 Triple Crown Victory with Justify. Through this partnership, members of Commonwealth will have the ability to buy shares in horses owned, acquired and managed by WinStar Farm.
Check out the official release on Winstar’s website here.
Elliott Walden, President & CEO of WinStar said, “We have been talking to the Commonwealth team for over a year, and we are excited to enter into this partnership. We have seen the micro share space grow, and believe that offering the horses that WinStar Farm races to the public will bring excitement and energy to the sport. Who knows, you might be the owner of the next Justify or Life Is Good.”
Already a Graded Stakes winner with earnings of $197,320 Country Grammer is poised for a big year. In last weekend’s G2 Californian, his first start with Bob Baffert, the colt led a field of 5 through the opening ¾ of a mile and battled Royal Ship down the stretch losing by a neck. Despite a narrow loss he posted a massive 108 speed figure and left the third place horse 9 lengths behind. Commonwealth members will have a chance to join his journey for $50/share and zero ongoing expenses when his offering goes live in the coming weeks!
“Together we are going to revolutionize the ownership experience and give the world access to horses that were once unavailable to the public,” Brian Doxtator, CEO of Commonwealth
With over 20 years of unparalleled success in racing and breeding, WinStar provides world-class talent selection and racing management, as well as access to the top horse trainers in the world. The gravity of this opportunity has our team more focused than ever to develop the most innovative ownership experience available. So many exciting announcements to come!
We are so thankful for the support and interest you have shown for Commonwealth already, and we are over the moon for the opportunities this will bring our members. To put your name on the waitlist for Country Grammer, make sure to check him out in our iOS App or on the web.
