What you guys are forgetting is that they are not buying a horse they are buying hopes and dreams. You see it at all the big sales be it TB or NRHA NRCHA and so on. The highest priced horses are long yearlings and started 2's. They are buying that hope of having a horse in the big show and doing well. Some times those dreams come true and sometimes they do not.

But usually in the case of racing T-breds the horse is bought by a "syndicate", which is a group of investors that pool together to buy a horse. The owner's shares are doled out by how much they put in. So, if there were 16 owners, each putting in $1 million they would all split any race or breeding profits 16 ways. Make sense?

Wasn't Alydar insured for almost a 100,000,000 $?
I remember that Storm Cat was worth 50 million in the 90's I believe.
Some TB stallions have stud fees that are 150,000 to 250,000 $.
Bet no one calls them backyard breeders. Shalom

Those were horses with a race record. Most were syndicated or insured for great amounts after being retired from racing. They also insure fertility for several million on those horses with huge race records.

This is a 'prospect' sold at auction as a yearling. Most of the very high priced yearlings are total failures. I believe it is an 'auction record'.

Look at the prices are prospects at the NRHA and NCHA sales. Now they are not as high as the TB or even the QH recing prospects but they are still high.

I have seen some ones that have broken records win and some not so much. However the vast majority of the top horses are sold privetly. So you can only guess at what they sold for.

Totilas is rumored to have sold for 15,000,000 - approx $18000000 USD.
