LET'S GO STABLES, LLC was designed to capitalize on the ever-expanding opportunities in the world of thoroughbred horseracing. With unique and exclusive offerings, LGS provides the end-user with a lifestyle investment in sports ownership at a fraction of the cost. We invite you to join us in our quest of someday racing a Kentucky Derby winner or perhaps even a Champion!
LGS principals Kevin Scatuorchio and Bryan Sullivan developed an early passion for thoroughbred racing through family owned runners. That passion has led to a commitment to the thoroughbred industry and to the vision that created LGS.
To this early involvement with top-class racehorses, and their management, has been added a near-decade as participants at the major yearling and two-year-old sales. Together they have gained invaluable experience, developing skills further honed by constant contact with the other top professionals that form the LGS team.
In addition, Bryan has gained important insight through working among industry leaders as a Board of Trustee Member of TOBA (Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association) and a member of the Executive Board of the TAA (Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance).
The value of this knowledge-building process is clearly demonstrated in the remarkable success that LGS has already enjoyed, and in its emergence as a leader among thoroughbred racing partnerships.
Formed in 2006, LGS has rapidly proved the value of its philosophy. The goal is quite simply to provide their partners with the thrill of owning top quality racehorses that compete at thoroughbred racing’s highest level.
The LGS business plan is designed to significantly increase the odds of success through use of exceptional rigorous and sophisticated selection procedures. The rewards of this stringent process have quickly become apparent. Runners representing LGS have taken their investors to some of racing’s greatest days, including three Breeders’ Cups, two Kentucky Derbys, and the Belmont Stakes, and LGS runners have featured among the top 20 in the Daily Racing Form’s “Derby Watch” in each of the last three years.
LGS can also claim remarkable success in statistical terms. Since the first LGS starters reached the racecourse in 2007, LGS has been represented by no less than 12 stakes performers from only 34 starters, meaning better than one in three starters are black-type earners - a success rate of over 35% stakes horses to starters, compared to an industry standard of 8%. LGS can also claim a remarkable figure of 20% stakes winners to starters, an exceptional achievement when one realizes that only 5.2% of all North American thoroughbreds achieve this level.
Let’s Go Stables’ recent runners have been headlined by Verrazano and Daredevil. Verrazano was officially rated among the World’s best thoroughbreds of 2013, after a season in which he captured the Haskell Invitational Stakes (G1), by a record-breaking 9¾ lengths, and the Wood Memorial Stakes (G1), performances that saw him retire to Ashford Stud, Kentucky, as one of the most exciting stallion prospects of his crop. Daredevil ran the fastest Beyer Speed figure of 2014 by a two-year-old when capturing the Champagne Stakes (G1). Daredevil, who will continue his career in 2015, is destined, like Verrazano, to stand at one of Kentucky’s most prestigious stallions upon his retirement, as following his Champagne Stakes victory, an interest in him was sold to WinStar Farm.
Other stars to have carried the Let’s Go colors include Divine Oath, a two-time graded stakes winner, who established himself as one of the top turf three-year-olds of 2014, and who remains in training in 2015; El Padrino, winner of the Risen Star Stakes (G2) and now an exciting young sire; graded stakes winner and Breeders’ Cup Juvenile (G1) contender Silent Valor; and Ready’s Echo, a classic-placed three-year-old, who came within ¾ length of capturing the Breeders’ Cup Dirt Mile (G1) at four.
With two graded stakes winners looking to build further on their reputations in 2015, and several promising young horses, LGS looks very well situated to grow their rapidly evolving reputation for delivering excitement, performance and financial reward in the near future.
The greatest strength of LGS lies in its Team of industry leaders who collectively have well over 100 years of experience in their respective areas of expertise. Led by Todd Pletcher – a six-time Eclipse Award winner as Champion Trainer – our team also includes J.J. Pletcher (Trainer), Dr. Scott Hay, DVM (Veterinary Consultant), and Alan Porter (Pedigree Consultant).
In addition to its unrivaled human resources, LGS also has access to the best and latest in technology designed to assist in the selection process. This includes comprehensive and sophisticated "Big data-analysis;" Cardio and DNA testing; and stride and movement analysis. These cutting-edge techniques have already proved their worth in the shape of Verrazano, whose DNA and Cardio report predicted him "..as potentially an elite classic colt."
