Mojo Racing Partners announces new trainer!

Mojo Racing Partners is pleased to announce it is partnering with J.R. Caldwell to handle Mojo’s training responsibilities for the 2012 Lone Star Meet.

“I was looking for a trainer who understands the Mojo Mission, and I believe J.R. is the right person to help us give the people what they want,” said Fred Taylor, Mojo’s Managing Partner.  “The integrity of the trainer is very important to me and what Mojo stands for, and J.R. fits the bill insofar as his training practices, the way he runs his barn, and his overall philosophy about horsemanship, the sport, and the industry.”

J.R. has saddled over 1,700 starters: 228 winners, 218 seconds, and 228 thirds (38% W/P/S record), and he’s earned over $2.5 Million.  He races at Oaklawn, Lone Star, Remington Park, and Prairie Meadows among other tracks. 

Currently, J.R.’s off to a great start at the 2012 Lone Star Meet—fifth in the overall standings, 3-3-5 in 15 starts (20% win record).   Last year, he finished fifth in the Trainer standings for the Lone Star Meet, 20-12-15 in 86 starts (23% win record).

J.R. finished in the Top 25 at the 2012 Oaklawn Meet, and was 10-16-6 in 95 starts (11% win record). 

“I have found that when you are looking for a trainer you need three things: Integrity, Integrity, Integrity!” says owner, John Mooring.  However, the bonus with having your horses with J.R. Caldwell comes when you also find out he is a hard worker and a real horseman.

“I highly recommend J.R. Caldwell to any horse owner,” says owner, Jazette Hudson.  “My family and I have worked with J.R. for over three years—he puts the animal's mind and health above all.”

Mojo Background

Mojo Racing Partners was founded in 2006 to prove that having fun; enjoying all the aspects of ownership; and upholding the highest standards in the Thoroughbred Racing Industry can be done for a fraction of the cost.  Mojo (the entity) is based in Fort Worth, TX; and our Runners have also raced in Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois.  Mojo also has a separate partnership group for a four-year-old filly, Wild About Annie, and she is slated to run later this spring/summer. 

Mojo is forming a new general partnership to claim and run a thoroughbred racehorse at the 2012 Lone Star Park Meet.  Mojo’s new general partnership will offer 4% shares for $500 (each).  There are no monthly fees once the subscription price is paid.  The only things each person may have to pay based on their vested percentage are any additional medical, insurance (if purchased), and expenses incurred related to racing this horse (not to exceed the value of the horse) that aren't covered by any purse money earned.  You can pay with cash, certified check, or credit card.  Visit Become A Partner to learn more about this opportunity. 

"We don’t pretend to be everything to everyone, and we aren’t trying to compete against the ‘Big Boys’ racing syndicates,” says Fred Taylor, Mojo’s Managing Partner.  “We want to give people an easy, affordable, fun, and low risk (financially) alternative to experience this great sport.  And, our Concept and Mission are designed to, first, provide the best care for our horses—before, during, and after their racing careers; set a good example for the industry; and provide a unique/educational experience for our Partners.  By offering this type of service, we believe there can be win/win memories that will last a lifetime."
