The Rewards Are Many
Owning a Harness Horse is a risk-reward proposition perhaps unlike any other. There are many possible upsides to the experience.
The thrill of cheering for your horse, especially win it wins, is virtually unequalled and something that you’ll cherish forever. Just as importantly many people involved in harness racing meet others in the sport and make friends for life, enjoying the social benefits of their ownership experience.
The financial rewards that racehorse owners enjoy include:
Owning a horse purchased for a modest amount can potentially win big money – or at least more than they cost to buy and keep.
An outstanding filly or mare can become a broodmare and produce as many as 15 foals, each of which could attract lucrative money at the yearling sales
A colt with outstanding ability may have a future career as a stallion and if successful in the breeding barn, can generate significant income each year during its life in the breeding barn
A well chosen claiming or racehorse can be purchased for a modest sum of money and may improve and rise in value, enabling you the option of selling your horse at a profit.
