Stonestreet Farms Making a Business in the Sport of Kings case solution
Their horses raced as soon as possible, and for as brief a time as possible to show that they were precious for breeding- sold them to breeding businesses. The sector relied greatly on new entrants who’d cash race and from outdoor horse racing to purchase their foals. Jess Jackson set up Stonestreet Farms. Unlike most in the horse racing company, Stonestreet was involved in breeding and racing horses and in both training. Two of its own horses, Rachael Alexandra and Curlin, won the coveted North American Horse of the year for three straight years, from 2007-2009. Both later became part of the breeding business of Stonestreet. This case discusses the challenges facing breeders and owners in the North American thoroughbred racing business.
