                   and we play the game straight."

                                     -- Jeff Seder, founder


We BOUGHT (not just listed on some huge supposed recommended list with mostly duds, and we did it well before they ever raced)  horses that have won 41 GRADE ONE Stakes (highest level of racing there is, like KY Derby, or world championships. )

We've bought as youngsters at auction and been on the team of world champions, Ky Derby wins,

  11 Eclipse Awards

         and even a TRIPLE CROWN,

buying and management services

                 registered trademark since 1978 as  


      Big data based analytics,

 and cutting edge sports medicine,

plus experienced market savvy, and

         solid traditional horsemanship

{our principals have 35 years experience having done every job there is in a racing stable and barn; our researchers were luminaries in their fields}.  

our analytics include:   


patented heart and internal organ scans {we invented the technique, the equipment that dopes it, and published the major study on it in veterinary journals}, 

 proprietary DNA tests {developed from our OWN proprietary huge data banks with markers no one else has or could have}, 

slow motion gait analysis {we invented it for real race horses back in the 1980's, and are the only ones with huge studies on real race horses at real race tracks published in prestigious veterinary journals} ,

our own large scale published research,

 logarithm velocity decay fatigue curves {data bases going back decades- high reliability},

    and more...

We know what works, and

     perhaps more important,

                             what does not.

(there's lots of pseudo science out there - we can show PROOF our methods and results to you }

    summary statistics, and how we do it,   

{ that is --  proprietary technologies (multiple patent rights) that we developed ourselves with leading trainers and with scientists, and veterinarians,  at top universities, and that we've published on in major peer refereed veterinary and biomechanics journals. These studies cost millions of $, covered many thousands of racehorses -- and we have compiled, over 35 years, unique massive data bases, and 35 years of experience at the top of horse racing;

keeping clients from selling them as youngsters --  

-- see industry leading percentage statistics below )

{ note: beware !!  there are unscrupulous bloodstock consultants  out there peddling cheap imitations, unproven half-baked theories and techno-gimmicks without any independent refereed published scientific research studies to validate what they claim or the experience to do  it correctly.  Slick marketing literature, of course,  is not real validated research nor is a good horse or two over many years a proven track record }

Experience and integrity at auctions:

Many in the business long enough can point
to a good horse or two they have been a part of
somehow. The percentage of their
successes is much more important,
and much harder to attain, let alone to do it
year after year

"Experts" who were right once,
cannot usually deliver what you want now.

We are mindful of all the very good horsemen
at the top of the racing industry, and our goal
was always to be accepted as their peer,
 --  but to do it our way.
Now, thank God, we've earned our way there.

Being full time scouts, and having unique tools,
EQB has proven it can add value to even
the most successful trainer’s selection process.

By successfully developing progressive new frontiers in Thoroughbred performance evaluation and analysis, EQB has become one of the racing industry's most potent competitive advantages, offering an unrivaled array of proprietary advanced gait analysis, patented ultra-sound heart-scan and equine cardio analysis, as well as pedigree and conformation services for finding top talent at worldwide auctions.  EQB's advanced non-invasive, Thoroughbred heart scan technique, using unique huge data bases (over 50,000 racehorses) is patented. We also invented the first equine accurate heart rate meter for training in 1981 and the first aerodynamic jockey silks in 1979.

Major owners, trainers, and stables — household names传奇sf in the sport — turn to EQB’s singular union of traditional horsemanship and cutting-edge innovation to identify exceptional Thoroughbred talent at major auctions. Our ability to find overlooked, undervalued contenders empowers EQB clients to purchase top talent for less and ultimately train more breakout champions from fewer horses.

We invented the first accurate racehorse heart rate meters, first portable ultrasound exams, first aerodynamic jockey silks (2 years before Danskin), etc.
