QnA with NFL Star and Racehorse Owner Jacob Tamme

From NFL to Farming: Jacob Tamme Chats Cows and Horse Racing

Q. Advice I would give to anyone considering getting into racing as an owner:

A. Start small. Heck, stay small. There’s nothing wrong with being a 5% partner on a great filly or colt. I’ll take 5% of a really good one over 50% or even 100% of an average one any day. Find the right person or people to partner with and set realistic expectations. If you are starting your own operation from scratch and have the resources to go it alone, even more important to find the right advisors and horsemen to help you get started.
