The ride of a lifetime!

Excitement. Thrills!

This is what Thoroughbred racing is all about. From breeding future racehorses to the proud moment of standing in the winner’s circle, horse racing has captured the hearts of fans and owners since it began. Joining a partnership at Circle 8 Ranch gives our investors the experience, the thrills, and the benefits of ownership at a fraction of the cost.

Meet the Winning Lineup

At Circle 8 Ranch, our trainers and staff have the exceptional ability to recognize talent and expand the potential in promising racehorses. Listed below are our available horses for thoroughbred partnerships.

Are you looking for a new and exciting way to invest?

A Thoroughbred Partnership is a lifestyle, not just an asset! Investing in the Thoroughbred industry offers the adrenaline rush of risk and reward in a way the stock market cannot. When was the last time buying a stock sent chills up your spine or gave you goose bumps? Buying and selling a future racehorse is similar in some ways to playing the stock market, but the comparison ends there. Being part of the Circle 8 Ranch Pinhook Group provides more security than investing in the sport on your own. Because you are part of the group, risk is mitigated, but excitement is not.

Toretto reaches new heights over Gulfstream’s Tapeta course!

Toretto showed trainer Michelle Nihei he was ready to race with two bullet works on the turf at the Palm Meadows Training Center in Boynton Beach. The 4-year-old gelding by Handsome Mike posted a :48.20 four-furlong trial on May 13, followed by a :35.35 for three furlongs on May 24.

With Edwin Gonzalez aboard, Toretto lived up to his works yesterday, turning in a spectacular performance in a 5 1/2-furlong test over the Gulfstream Tapeta course. Under 126 pounds, the gelding owned and bred by Troy Levy’s Tropical Racing/Circle 8 operation broke well from the No. 2 post, tracked the leaders in fourth on the inside, edged closer to the top on the turn and powered through on the rail late to score by 3 1/2 widening lengths, clocked in 1:04.61.

Toretto paid $6 and earned $16,000 for his second victory, boosting his total to $61,505.

Circle 8 Ranch – a Thoroughbred Facility designed especially for the Sport of Kings!

Located in Versailles, Kentucky, Circle 8 Ranch is situated on 200 acres of prime land in the heart of thoroughbred country. The main barn has 23 stalls, several tack rooms, wash stalls, and an office and lab area. The yearling barn has eight sizeable 15’x15’ stalls. With 14 fenced paddocks and six large grazing fields, our horses benefit from a bounty of lush grass and plenty of room.

As part of our training program, Circle 8 Ranch maintains a 5/8 track, as well as a 5/8 all-terrain gallop track, on the property.

Strategically located, our central Kentucky farm offers an important and unique advantage to racehorse owners. Those within the bluegrass community have advance knowledge of exceptional offerings, are the first to know about the next “hot” stallion, and are positioned to purchase one-of-a-kind individual horses that may have “slipped through the cracks” at auction!

Having the right infrastructure in place reduces the costs of maintaining young horses while they are being trained. Feed and housing fees are greatly reduced and the logistics of where the horses go is made simple. Everything becomes a well-controlled, in-house strategy and the management of the horses is streamlined and efficient – ultimately saving our partners money while giving horses the best advantage possible in their careers.

Adrenaline. Excitement. Thrills!
Are you ready for racehorse ownership? We are ready to show you why partnering with Circle 8 Ranch is the answer!
