Team Valor

Owner Profile

Team Valor
Team Valor is an American and international thoroughbred horse racing stable headquartered in Versailles, Kentucky. Its roots date back to 1988 when Barry Irwin and Jeff Siegel founded Clover Racing Stable, which later became Team Valor when another Clover Racing partner chose to get out.

In 1997, Irwin bought out Jeff Siegel to become the operation's sole proprietor. He also changed the name to Team Valor International after realizing the scope of international horseracing. Built on a business model that encourages the formation of partnerships or syndicates with horseracing enthusiasts, Team Valor International has partnerships with people in most US states as well as Japan, Singapore, Canada, South Africa, Italy and England.
Team Valor
As such, over half of Team Valor's stable is currently prospected outside of the United Stakes. In addition, the percentage of Team Valor's thoroughbreds that are stake horses comprise over 50 percent, and have done so for over two decades. Team Valor has reported that over 28 percent of all of its runners have proved victorious in stakes races.

An interesting fact is that one percent of all the purse money earned by Team Valor horses - which is matched by Irwin himself - goes towards the Race for Education to provide much-needed scholarships. Barry Irwin's favorite horse, Swaps, was immortalized in 2002 in an Eclipse Press publication as part of its series focused on legendary racehorses.
