The QROOI’s First Line Racing Syndicate, in its third year, has already been very successful introducing new people to Quarter Horse ownership. The syndicate is made up of 20 shares in one horse at $2,500 per share which includes all bills. First Line’s 2019 runner, Eye Am the Eagle won four of nine starts in 2019 and is a five-time winner for the group since they bought him in 2018.
Bob Broadstock, president of the QROOI, buys and trains the horses for First Line and is expanding the syndicate this week as he is in Oklahoma City to purchase another horse at the Heritage Place Winter Mixed sale which runs Jan. 16 to 18.
“First Line is getting a second horse this week,” said Broadstock. “I am looking to sell more shares for 2020, ideally to boost it up to 30 shares.”
Broadstock says he will have a draw for a free share at the Can-Am Equine Expo in April at the Markham Fairgrounds and will keep the syndicate open until racing at Ajax begins on May 10.
Eye Am the Eagle, the second horse owned by the syndicate, was swarmed by his numerous, loving owners each time he won last year. Owners also had special events with Broadstock including plenty of meet-and-greets at the farm he owns with wife Marie.
“They never stop enjoying it,’ said Broadstock. “And because of the success of Eagle and how consistent a guy he is, we hope to attract more people.”
