Syndicate Bio

With one of the most sparkling records in the sport, the Starlight Racing team has achieved success in the elite Grade I sphere for more than a decade. This remarkable accomplishment reflects Starlight’s primary goal: competing and winning at the highest level, and its commitment to reach that goal year after year.

Our horses compete at premier meets across the globe, from Kentucky and New York to Florida and California, and overseas in Dubai. The successes we’ve shared include:

  • 72 stakes victories (52 graded, 25 Grade 1)
  • 3 Eclipse Awards (Ashado, 3YO Filly 2004 & Older Female 2005; Shanghai Bobby, 2YO Male 2012)
  • 9 Kentucky Derby starters with 1 win (Justify 2018) and 1 third (Audible, 2018)
  • 3 Kentucky Oaks starters, with 1 win (Ashado 2004) and 1 second (Octave 2007)
  • 6 Breeders’ Cup starters, with 2 wins (Ashado, Distaff 2004; Shanghai Bobby, Juvenile 2012), 2 seconds (Ashado, Juvenile Fillies 2003; Octave, Juvenile Fillies 2006) and 2 thirds (Ashado, Distaff 2005; Octave, Distaff 2007)
  • Triple Crown victory (Justify, 2018)

Our list of stable stars includes 2012 undefeated 2-year-old champion Shanghai Bobby; two-time Eclipse Award winner and 2014 Hall of Fame inductee, Ashado; 2007 Kentucky Oaks runner-up Octave; undefeated graded stakes winner Algorithms; the standout colt who started it all, Harlan’s Holiday; and 2018 Triple Crown winner, Justify. To view our Honor Roll of stars and their accomplishments, please click here.

Starlight Racing began in 2000 as the culmination of founders Jack and Laurie Wolf’s virtually lifelong interest in horse racing and has continued to this day. The only change being that in 2013 Laurie, along with a few supporting partners, started StarLadies Racing, our all female, all fillies racing partnership. Jack is CEO and Managing Partner in Starlight Racing while Laurie is CEO and Managing Partner in StarLadies. Our team also includes six-time Eclipse Award-winning and Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Todd Pletcher and world-renowned bloodstock agent Frank Brothers. Top jockeys such as John VelazquezJavier CastellanoJoel Rosario and Mike Smith are typically aboard Starlight runners. Together this team gives us the significant advantage of professionals with longstanding records of winning the biggest races at the best racetracks.

In our search for the promising Thoroughbred stars of tomorrow, each year we form partnerships to acquire yearlings at the Fasig-Tipton July, Saratoga Select August, and Keeneland September sales. Our Starlight Racing partnership opens for a very short time each year from June to August and then closes in September, however, it is never too early or late to inquire about the partnership or to verbally commit to the following year's opportunities. 

If you would like more information about Starlight Racing please contact Donna Barton Brothers at Donna@StarlightRacing.com.
