Blue Streak Racing
Horse racing is a complicated business, and it pays to have experience on your side. From trainers and veterinarians to bloodstock agents, the people involved are as important as the horses. Blue Streak Racing seeks out the best and brightest minds in the industry to work with, and that translates to success on the track.
Meet the Blue Streak Racing team
A native of Saratoga Springs, NY, Tim was immersed in horse racing (like it or not), working at the famed Spa oval from the age of 15, right through college age. From handing out uniforms and washing tablecloths for the clubhouse diners, to directing traffic and watching over champion horses as a security guard, Tim was always around the track, though it wasn’t until the last five years that these experiences manifested themselves into race horse ownership.
After having been part of numerous racing partnerships, Tim has taken what he believes to be the best part of each of those partnerships, while leaving out the not so good parts, when coming up with a blueprint for his own partnership. Though currently based in Washington, DC, working in Federal law enforcement for the last 18 years, Saratoga is never far from mind and neither is being in the Spa’s winners circle.
Advisor, Oracle BloodstockConor is a graduate of the prestigious Darley Flying Start Program, as well as having held significant positions with thoroughbred powerhouse Darley, and the Breeder’s Cup.
Conor, along with his partner in Oracle Bloodstock Jim Hatchett, a trainer with over 40 years’ experience, use their vast knowledge to mitigate risk and help select horses that have the best chance of succeeding on the track.
Francis “Tres” Abbott III
TrainerFrancis “Tres” Abbott III is Blue Streak Racing’s trainer in the Mid-lantic region. Tres races at Delaware Park, Laurel, PARX, and Penn National, but will ship to any track where a race fits one of his horses.
Tres is based at the Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, MD. Fair Hill is a world-class facility which is home base for many top-tier trainers, including Graham Motion and Arnaud Delacour. Tres has done a great job with our first horse, Viserion, and continues to move her forward.
TrainerDanny Gargan is a New York-based, graded stakes winning trainer. Danny races primarily running on the NYRA circuit, but ships wherever he can be competitive. Danny is the consummate horseman, having grown up in the Bluegrass State, and has a sharp eye for talent, especially in the development of young horses.
Danny was active at this past Spring’s 2-year old sales and looks to leave his mark on the upcoming Saratoga meet as well as into the fall and winter. Our 2-year old filly ‘Prairie Fire’ is currently under Danny’s watchful eye at Belmont.
TrainerRaymond ‘Ray’ Handal is one of the best young trainers in the game, having surpassed the million-dollar mark in earnings in 2017, in only his fourth year. Ray learned the ropes under Hall-of-Famer Jonathan Sheppard, as well as top-notch trainers like Michael Matz, Kenny McPeek, and Tony Dutrow.
Ray is active in the claim game and is always looking for a horse that he can take to the next level. Ray currently has our 2-year old Filly I’llHandalTheCash in his care at Belmont, and we’ll be looking to claim with him in the near future.
