CHANCE IT WINS THE MUCHO MACHO MAN!!

About Us

SHOOTING STAR'S SUCCESS RELIES ON EXPERIENCE AND PROVEN THOROUGHBRED EXPERTISE

The idea to form Shooting Star Thoroughbreds came together over a casual lunch conversation with family and friends at a horse sale. It was immediately obvious what a perfect fit starting a thoroughbred syndicate would be for Mary Lightner, who comes from a family of lifelong horse people. She made the decision to move forward that day and hasn't looked back. 


Mary, who is training horses in Florida, Kentucky and Toronto, is going to step away from that role and manage the syndicate. Mike Lightner and Raymie Lightner, both top respected bloodstock agents who select horses for the best trainers in the country, will be instrumental in choosing the horses for the syndicate. Lisa Goodin, a thoroughbred owner and horse enthusiast, will help maintain the day to day operations.


Partnering with Shooting Star Thoroughbreds will partner you with one of the most competitive teams in the business.

THOROUGHBRED PARTICIPATION IS AFFORDABLE

Many racing enthusiasts only watch the races from their television or the grandstand, thinking Thoroughbred participation is too expensive or they don't have the experience to get involved. Investing with Shooting Star lets you move from spectator to owner by purchasing a fractional interest in a thoroughbred package of horses. We offer both racing syndicates and pinhook syndicates. We take care of all of the management responsibilities while you enjoy watching your horse run or go through the sales ring. 


Not only do you have the THRILL of being in the game, you have a chance to earn a RETURN on your INVESTMENT. 

HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE

Shooting Star Thoroughbreds would like to invite you to participate in one or more of our thoroughbred syndicates. Partnering with us affords you access to the best bloodstock agents, trainers, vets and other service providers in the business.
