Ben McElroy has bought and managed a number of partnerships with great success. He has targeted partnerships in the market of pinhooking weanlings to yearlings, pinhooking yearlings to two-year-olds and in the breeding stock market. Weanlings and yearlings purchased for pinhooking partnerships have been purchased under the name Twin Peaks, while breeding stock has been purchased and sold in the name of Coronation Investments in the past years. In the first year, Coronation Investments yielded a 20% return on investment with its purchase of two mares and a weanling in January of 2010. The three were purchased for a gross sum of $315,000. Sale of the mares and their foals the subsequent November of 2010 yielded $380,000 for the partners. In 2010, Ben purchased the filly ALPHA KITTEN for $150,000 in November at Fasig-Tipton in what he read as being a very soft spot in the market for a filly that simply appeared to be a bit beneath her peak physically. The partners were well rewarded for the filly when ALPHA KITTEN sold for $405,000 at the 2011 Keeneland January Sale realizing a return on their investment of 170%.
With successes annually pinhooking weanlings to yearlings, Ben McElroy has carried this success to the yearling to two-year-old market seamlessly. In 2010, Ben purchased a yearling by leading young sire TAPIT, out of the mare SAWGRASS EXPRESS for $60,000 at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. The colt was broken and sold at Barretts in March 2011 for $340,000 realizing a 465% return on investment.
