Brink Point was Taste of Victory's first runner in Ohio. This gelding was born with tendon laxity, meaning he had loose ligaments which caused his joints to bend more than usual. His breeder Chelsey Wolterman had to go to his stall every hour for the first 48 hours to hold him so he could nurse. Eventually, thanks to the patience of his breeders, Brink Point was able to run and play like a normal foal.
Brink Point's breeders Chelsey and Peggy Wolterman wanted to maintain ownership of their horse but needed someone else to manage the racing aspect. They contacted us for private stable management and together we all watched Brink Point transform into a 5-time winning racehorse.

Brink Point was the first Ohio-bred and Ohio runner for Taste of Victory Stables. He raced exclusively at Belttera Park and Mahoning Vallet Race Course.
Brink Point was born with tendon laxity, which made him too weak to even stand to nurse. His breeders gave him endless patience and attention until he was as strong as a normal horse! He rewarded their patience with many great memories.
Brink Point's breeders wanted to create a horse that was not only suitable for racing, but for riding too. They had plans for his life before he was even born.

“I just wanted to believe that we could do horse racing the right way. Ethically. With a solid aftercare program and people that care much more about doing it the right way than about squeezing a horse for a return on investment immediately. I love horses and this sport could be so much bigger with more education and awareness and really quite frankly, monetary incentives to do the right thing. Syndicates are absolutely the right answer for so many people (even me) that lack the sheer $$$ of what it takes to make a racehorse from start to finish.”
