WPT Looks to Finish Strong

October 31, 2007 · By · Share

The Breeders' Cup may be over, but racing isn't stopping anytime soon for West Point Thoroughbreds. There are two months left on the calendar in 2007 for the stable to add a few more exclamation points to what is already our most successful year to date.


The stable and its Partners are expecting to finish just as strong down the stretch as they have all year long. The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />West Point black and gold don't plan on slowing down.


Although the stable's Breeders' Cup run may not have produced all the results we hoped for, there was still a lot to create excitement. To send five horses on its own is a tremendous accomplishment. Yet, West Point didn't leave empty-handed. Awesome Gem exited Monmouth Park with a third place finish in the Breeders' Cup Classic.


He represented West Point and its Partners as best as any other could. 


When taking into account each of the registered stable names that West Point Thoroughbreds runs under, our $4,100,457 in earnings currently places us fourth in the country in North American purse earnings. In 204 starts, the stable's been in the money a convincing 52% of the time; while winning 26% of the time. With 53 winners to date, we've crushed last year's record of 42 wins with still two months left on the calendar. The wins have come from 32 different horses at 18 different tracks across the country.


The stable's success clearly is not limited to one horse. West Point has won ten graded stakes this year with six different horses reaching the winner's circle. Awesome Gem, Dream Rush, Flashy Bull (who retired in August and now stands at Mr. and Mrs. Brereton C. Jones's Airdrie Stud in Midway, Kentucky), High Finance, Irish Smoke, and Lear's Princess represent the year's graded stakes winners. West Point horses have contested fourteen Grade 1 races, meeting their owners in the winner's circle five times and finishing second five more times.


"It's an unbelievable year," Finley said. "We're looking forward to continuing this high-level of success through the end the year. Keep an eye on West Point, there's still a lot more to see."
