Kenny specializes in purchasing yearlings for his clients both privately and at public auction, and managing those prospects effectively as they develop. His list of successful purchases is long. The list below offers a sample of the many quality racehorses that Kenny has found for his clients. He also has an interest in South American bloodstock.
Kenny McPeek has touched the lives of many owners and many horses, showing each the way to success. From yearling purchases to international acquisitions, Kenny has found many talented horses which have gone on to make tremendous profits for their owners.
Tejano Run, Take Charge Lady, Repent, She's A Devil Due, Sarava, Noble's Promise, Kathmanblu and Hard Buck are just some of the examples of Ken's vision and remarkable ability in discovering talented horses for his owners.
A $20,000 purchase Ken made for owner Roy Monroe, Tejano Run passed the $1,000,000 mark in career earning with his third place finish in the Oaklawn Handicap (G1) in 1997. He also nearly gave his owner one of the biggest thrills in racing, just missing a victory in the Kentucky Derby (G1) in 1995.
Take Charge Lady and Repent both became millionaires for Select Stable, who was advised by Ken to buy them as yearlings. Take Charge Lady became the "mistress of Keeneland Racecourse", never losing a race there including her maiden win, the Alcibiades Stakes (G2), the Ashland Stakes (G1) and twice the Spinster Stakes (G1).
Brian Griggs and Mike Goetz caught "lightening in a bottle" when Ken selected the popular filly She's A Devil Due for them for $30,000. She went on to win the Alcibiades Stakes (G2) and was third in the Breeder's Cup Juvenile Fillies Stakes (G1) as a 2-year-old. When she retired, she had earned over half a million dollars for Brian and Mike, who had never owned a racehorse before.
Galloping Gal, purchased for $50,000 for Bill Carl became a multiple graded stakes winner over $300,000. Prince Arch, purchased for $37,000 for Ray Cottrell, is the Grade 1 winner of the 2005 Gulfstream Park Turf Cup Handicap.
Recently, grade 1 winner Noble's Promise and multiple stakes winner Kathmanblu are among McPeek Racing stars taking owners to the winner's circle.
