A third generation professional horseman, a graduate of the intense 6 year course at the Premier Horsemanship Institute in Russia, and with a 23 year career as a stakes winning jockey including multiple Derby, Oaks, and Criterium wins, Genadi immigrated to the United States from a prestigious career as a top European trainer. In only a few years, Genadi has proven his abilities as a notable and well recognized California trainer with horses racing at all recognized racetracks. How would you like to make an $8,000 claim and 25 days later win a Maiden Special Weight? Or, how about a $25,000 claim that nets $58,000 in only four races, including 3 wins and 1 second place? Or, how about a $32,000 claim that nets $110,000? Genadi is a master at “moving horses up” in class, so if you have been looking for a better way to enjoy horse racing, he just might have the answer. Genadi currently maintains a racing string at Santa Anita and a training barn at Hollywood Park. You can contact Genadi at (510) 205-7448. Only a few openings are available in the Dorochenko Racing Stable, so don’t miss this opportunity!

Reputable Charlestown Trainer has room for 2 more horses.

With the slotmachines booming at Charlestown, the purses are on the rise. The purse structure in the midrange 5000-1000 is better than Md. Where else can you run a 5000 claimer for 9500?

The competition at the present, is not that difficult but is competitive. If you have horses that have a problem going 6f, our condition book is loaded with 4 1/2 furlong races of all types. Last year over 700 horses were claimed here, and the trend has not slowed down. If you need to unload one that doesn't fit the major tracks this is the place to do it.

We offer excellent care at affordable rates, and conduct our business with the utmost in honesty, integrity, and attention to detail. If you wish to be part of a winning team, give us a call or send us an e-mail.
