Year In Review and Plans for 2016 - Mojo's 10th Anniversary!
Mojo’s Mission is to introduce people to the sport of Thoroughbred racehorse ownership, as well as provide our Partners with an affordable, educational, and exciting ownership experience.
Every year we set
ambitious goals for our racing groups, we formulate a variety of strategies to
achieve our objectives, and we try to do something new to elevate everyone’s
level of excitement.
Thoughts About 2015
In many ways, 2015 was a year of firsts: First race/win at Ellis Park, first Mojo Runner to have back-to-back wins, and the first time two different Mojo Groups won back-to-back races. All of these wins were fantastic and they happened when we needed them the most. And, to set the stage for a new year of racing, another Mojo milestone was marked at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale—we replenished our racing stable by purchasing three horses for a new Mojo Group.
past year was not
without its challenges. Throughout 2015, Mother Nature was a
factor, and her influence caused more of our races to be either washed
out and/or run
over muddy track conditions than we had over fast/firm footing.
started 2015 with four runners and grand aspirations for our racing
however, for a variety of uncontrollable reasons, one runner simply
out as a racehorse, another had to be retired after returning to racing
then sustaining a career-ending injury, and a third was claimed.
Leaving us with one Mojo Runner at the end of the year.
Plans for 2016 - Mojo's 10th Anniversary Year!
We plan to resume Mojo racing at the 2016 Thoroughbred Meet at Lone Star Park (which begins in April). Meanwhile, during the first quarter, we’ll be preparing our three new runners for their first starts, as well as conditioning our 3YO for turf racing in the spring.
Before making their debuts, the new horses in the Mojo Trio need to be named. As such, in January, all Mojo Fans will be given an opportunity to participate in the naming process. In the past two years, we’ve invited our Fans to help us name our new Runners. This has been fun for all and helpful to Mojo, and we will be posting information via our Mojo social channels in the near future insofar as how you can take part—stay tuned!
Heza City Slicker (who is
currently turned out after a busy 2YO season) will get back into training in
February, and he’ll be prepared for his three-year-old turf racing
campaign. You can be sure that we’ll post updates on his progress via
Mojo Facebook and Twitter too.
Join the Fun!
