The 2008 auction that sold Miss Lodi also sold 239 other horses for a grand total of $27,088,200. That was a single auction event. If you look at the numbers, with $60,000 being the median, the value of Broodmare.com is pretty evident
Brandon, MS (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
SuperNiche.com, a top tier broker of premium domain names, announces the availability of two key domain names for the lucrative horse racing industry. Broodmare.com is the perfect domain for anyone in the horse breeding business and is being offered exclusively at SuperNiche.com for only $35,000. 2yo.com is also available exclusively at SuperNiche.com for $100,000. Most colts begin their formal training at the age of two and are recognized by the universally accepted symbol “2 YO” in the industry. This makes 2yo.com a stand-out within the already coveted three character .com domain world.
The horse racing world is a high stakes four-billion dollar a year business, where the champions collect massive purses that can total in the millions of dollars. In addition to earnings made from winning the races, spectator betting is also hugely popular. Spectators of the sport can and do place wagers on the races every weekend. The Kentucky Derby alone generates over one hundred million dollars in betting each year and there are hundreds of other races held year round that present horse racing fans with ample opportunities to take their chances.
Major races like the Preakness, the Belmont Stakes and this upcoming Saturday’s 139th Kentucky Derby, are steeped in tradition and the winners will split a purse of over $2,180,000; the lion’s share of which will be claimed by the winner (62% of the purse at $1,240,000 ). Purses like that help fuel the competitive field and drive many to invest in buying and training horses. Horses in the Kentucky Derby have to be three years old, but the age that most young colts are ready to be trained is right at two years old. With the symbol “2YO” well cemented in the equestrian business, 2yo.com is an extremely well positioned and easy to remember brand to develop into serving several segments looking for two year old horses. From a hub for blood stock agents that are keen on horse trading, to an information portal about breeding services or training tips, 2yo.com is a world class brand that would make a business easy to remember at every horse show or race.
Many horses can only race for about four to seven years, with the deciding factor being how long the horse stays sound and fit for racing. Once they are no longer in their prime for racing, a new and very lucrative part of the business emerges in the form of horse breeding. Famous horses such as Secretariat and Stormcat have produced stud fees in the mid six figure range. Any horse that can be traced in lineage to winners of big races are very valuable commodities indeed, with horses like Miss Lodi commanding nearly two million dollars at auction (Miss Lodi is the dam of two horses, Thrust and juvenile Veloce Re, both by A.P. Indy, which was sired by Secretariat). Female horses, otherwise known as mares, that are particularly suited for having quality colts are used exclusively for breeding and are referred to as broodmares.
“The 2008 auction that sold Miss Lodi also sold 239 other horses for a grand total of $27,088,200. That was a single auction event. If you look at the numbers, with $60,000 being the median, the value of Broodmare.com is pretty evident,” says Calvin Seymour, President of Super Niche LLC. “This domain would be invaluable to anyone in the business and is really priced to sell.”
