700 Lifetime Wins for West Point Thoroughbreds Racing Partnerships

August 29, 2016 · By Dawn Lenert · Share

Sun Belt was West Point's First Winner in 1991

West Point Thoroughbreds achieved a 700 win milestone Sunday, August 28 when three-year-old filly Street Surrender won an allowance race at Golden Gate Fields. Street Surrender drove home clear by four and a half lengths.

The win was the also the first under West Point silks for Hall of Fame trainer Jerry Hollendorfer.

It was the horse racing partnership group’s 700th win since 1991 when West Point’s first syndicated horse, Sun Belt, won at Philadelphia Park. It’s been onward and upward ever since that September day for Terry and Debbie Finley and West Point Partners. The racing syndicate has racked up 91 stakes wins for its Partners, including nine grade one victories. West Point horses have brought their owners to the Breeders’ Cup World Championships stage 18 times, winning last year’s Dirt Mile with Liam’s Map. West Point Partners have danced in the Triple Crown races eight times, highlighted by Commanding Curve’s runner-up finish in the 2014 Kentucky Derby.

Never one to rest on its laurels, West Point plans to reach win number 701 quickly. This morning from Saratoga Springs West Point President and CEO Terry Finley said, “We are at the sixteenth pole of summer racing. Have some bullets left on both coasts. Thanks to the entire West Point Family for win number 700 last night at Golden Gate and our first win with Jerry!”

With lifetime earnings of over $38 million, a win rate of 18% and ITM at 48%, the stable continues to provide people access to ownership and competition at horse racing’s highest levels.

Seeing those numbers serves as a reminder of how fortunate I've been to be a small part of WPT. I remember being at Philadelphia Park (Parx) when they still called it Keystone. Never thought I'd have a shot at being in winners' circle photos in places like Gulfstream Park, Saratoga, Keeneland, and Santa Anita, as well as my old hometown track, Delaware Park. Congratulations on win #700, to Terry, Debbie, and the entire team at West Point Thoroughbreds, and thanks for the thrills that all of you have helped provide with our wonderful equine athletes.
Jack and everyone. Thanks so much for the well wishes and for supporting the company! West Point Thoroughbreds would not be able to achieve these huge milestones without each and every one of you and all our Partners and trainers.
