StarLadies Racing Overview

StarLadies Racing is a relatively new partnership opportunity for female racing enthusiasts only, and consists of a small but diverse group of fillies.

Launched in 2013, StarLadies was formed out of the passion and fondness that Laurie Wolf and some supporting partners have for Thoroughbred racing. Laurie is also a founding partner in Starlight Racing and thought it would be fun (and hopefully, rewarding!) to have a small partnership comprised of a few fillies and a few great women so that they could enjoy their enthusiasm for racing with other like-minded women.

The StarLadies Racing partnership is formed anew annually and consist of 5-8 partners and, ideally, 4-5 fillies. These small groups offer an intimate partnership and allow each woman the chance to be involved with the sport at, hopefully, a fairly high level while minimizing individual risk. Laurie Wolf serves as CEO and managing partner. 

As with Starlight Racing’s core partnership, all horses are selected from the 3 premier yearling sales (July Fasig-Tipton; August Saratoga Select; Keeneland September) and all of the StarLadies fillies are purchased by the Starlight Racing team of Jack and Laurie Wolf and bloodstock agent, Frank Brothers. 

StarLadies’ first group of fillies included the multiple graded stakes winner Eskenformoney (Rampart Stakes, GIII; Turnback the Alarm Handicap, GIII). They've had stakes winners Firsthand Report, Orbolution and Takechargedelilah from subsequent crops.  While StarLadies Racing won an impressive 30% of their starts in 2017, they improved that to a remarkable 46% win percentage in 2018! So far in 2019 they have been first, second or third with 50% of the their starters.
