Affordable Horse Racing Partnerships

Uptowncharlybrown Stud LLC (UTCB) is a thoroughbred horseracing limited partnership syndicate who has been around since 1999.  We started out with just one horse and ten partners.  Winning races is very hard to do; but, we won with our first two races back-to-back and have never looked back. 

Since then UTCB Stud horseracing syndicate, simply by word of mouth, has grown to over 50 horses, 25 different partnerships, and over 400 partners.  We specialize in affordable thoroughbred horseracing “limited partnership” syndicates in which you can get involved in all the fun & excitement of thoroughbred horseracing for less than a thousand dollars.  The term “limited partnership” means you do not share in any liability.

We race predominantly at Parx, Belmont Park, Aqueduct, Gulfstream Park, Saratoga, Laurel, Pimlico, Monmouth Park & Delaware Park just to name a few racetracks. 

UTCB Stud is NOT a claiming stable. Instead we offer limited horseracing partnerships in unraced 2YO’s & 3YO’s in training.  Owning an unraced thoroughbred racehorse is not only very exciting; but hey, you just never know, as you may find that special champion.

Think it can’t happen?  Think again!  It happened to us with Uptowncharlybrown who won his first two races in devastating fashion and was prominently mentioned on the Triple Crown trail.  It also happened with the NY Bred filly, R Betty Graybull.  Both were multiple stakes winners. “Charly” was graded staked placed. 

Our history includes purchasing an unraced 2YO filly in R Betty Graybull for $60,000. All she did was earn over $436,000 including winning multiple stakes. Today she’s a successful broodmare.

We were blessed to buy an unraced 2YO colt in Uptowncharlybrown in 2009 for $57,000 who took us on the magic carpet ride of a lifetime known as the Triple Crown.  It culminated with his racing in the Grade One $1,000,000 Belmont Stakes.  Today “Charly” as he’s affectionately known stands as a stallion at Diamond B Farm in PA.

Back in 2012 when we made the decision to retire Charly, in our wildest dreams we never imagined he would turn out to be the leading freshman stallion in Pennsylvania in 2016, but he did.  By the way the purses have increased so much in PA that for 2017 the Pennsylvania Derby has been upgraded to a Grade One Stake.

Three of Charly’s first four starters from his initial 2016 freshman crop won in convincing fashion by margins of 10, 11 1/2 & 22 1/2 lengths which is unprecedented.  Charly has been very well received by the PA breeders and the racing community.  If you don’t know, Pennsylvania has the best State Bred program in the nation.  PA Breds race for 40% greater than the stated purse.  A PA MSW (Maiden Special Weight) purse in open company is $70,000.  There’s also a 40% PA breeding bonus on top of that.  Is it any wonder that PA Bred’s are so in demand. 

Now you have the opportunity to buy into one of Uptowncharlybrown’s 2YO or 3YO colts/ fillies as the heavy lifting has already been done.  Just check out these magnificent specimens at our Current Offering page.  We also buy and offer 2YO’s in training from other stallions too.  There’s something for everyone at UTCB Stud.  

Please note, when investing in thoroughbred racehorses, we’re dealing with living breathing creatures entrusted into our care.  There’s never any guarantees as investing in thoroughbred racehorses always involves a high degree of risk.  There’s always a chance of striking out; however, when you swing away for the fences, you may also just get lucky.  We do hope you find that special champion as you just never know?  That’s why royalty and celebrities are all so excited to be part of the exciting world of thoroughbred racing known as The Sport Of Kings!

For as little as $825 you too can become part owner in a thoroughbred racehorse as you and your family can enjoy all the fun & excitement.  As a limited partner, even at a minimal investment, you still receive all the privileges of full ownership in a racehorse. 

We cordially invite you to come back stage to the barn to watch your horse train and workout.  Also join us in the paddock on raceday!  When your horse wins, you’ll swear you’re walking on air as you, your family & friends proudly walk into the Winner’s Circle for that special Win photograph.  When it arrives at your home you have that special moment to adorn your wall that will last forever.  Everything at UTCB Stud is included “soup to nuts” without any hidden surprises. 

We’re dedicated to finding that special champion. But, more importantly, we treat all our partners as royalty as we offer first class service with email communication that is second to none.

The economics of racing are such, that it costs the same, approximately $50,000 annually in training expenses to feed a low level claiming horse, exactly the same as it does for the Kentucky Derby winner.

But, with claimers, there’s rarely ever any upside; and eventually, the economics of the sport will swallow an owner up whole.

That’s why at UTCB Stud we prefer to swing away for the fences offering  promising 2YO’s & 3YO’s in training. By sharing the expenses with your fellow racing enthusiasts, the cost of purchasing into the horse, as well as training expenses, are kept down to an affordable bare minimum. 

For example, if you buy a minimal share at $825 it includes the first six months of training expenses.  Thereafter, you’re only looking at $200 in training expenses every six months (not monthly) until your horse starts paying his way! 

We always search for athletes working long and hard to find that special racehorse.  As you continue to explore our website we do hope to answer all of your questions; but if not, please never hesitate to contact us.

If you’re searching for a summer of fun and excitement, all at an affordable price in the exciting world of thoroughbred racing, you’ve come to the right place.  Again, thank you for your interest as we do hope to hear from you.
