Flightline: A Superstar Generational Talent

A few words from our partners.

My wife and I have enjoyed every moment of our ten years partnership with WPT. Long-term horse lovers and riding enthusiasts, the genuine integrity of this organization cemented our interest. Aftercare was at the top of our list, and they exceeded all expectations.

Being somewhat of an amateur student of genetics, Flightline caught my immediate interest. The experts weighed in and affirmed my initial view. As I watched his morning works from Santa Anita, I was struck by his athleticism and desire. I said to my wife, “Drop everything we’re going for his first race!” He didn’t disappoint! We attended five of his six races culminating in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. All the superlatives that have been used to characterize his performances…understate the awe of watching this amazing equine athlete.

As a West Point partner for 10 years, Flightline was the achievement of a dream that we all aspire to when we get into this business. What impressed me the most about this journey was the transparency, detail, and communication by the WPTB team along the way. No question was left unanswered, whether financial, marketing, breeding,etc. We were all made aware of the immense talent of Flightline early on, but with talent came pressure. A plan was developed and followed in a very disciplined way, always doing what was best for the horse. Without the fractional ownership model of West Point, I could not have been involved with a million-dollar sales purchase. Truly a once in a lifetime experience thanks to Terry, Tom, and the team. In a business that is not always populated with people of the highest integrity,West Point is a model for this.

I have been fortunate to be a part of West Point Thoroughbreds practically since its inception, and I am honored to be a part of this talented group of people.

Flightline has brought us into a sphere most thought was impossible to achieve. He is, without a doubt, a superhorse and has given us a once-in-a-lifetime ability to feel like we have touched the stars. I would be remiss, though, not recognize other great horses I have been involved with as a partner, like Always Dreaming. Beyond that, numerous others gave us so much joy in seeing run and win, culminating with the 1000th win at Saratoga this summer.

In addition to great horse racing, WPT has given so much to the community. Involvement at every level makes this organization stand out amongst others of its kind. From recognizing trainers and jockeys to backstretch employees, WPT is unwavering in its dedication to the sport as a whole, and I am proud to be a part of it.
