West Point Thoroughbreds has amassed more than $16 million in purses dating back to 2007, during which time they’ve captured more than 20 graded stakes.
The syndicate was named by founder Terry Finley as a tribute to his alma mater. He earned a BS in Mechanical Engineering at West Point in 1986 - earning a GPA that, he jokes, "was closer to the bottom of the class than the top."
Finley served as an artillery officer in the Army for eight years, attaining the rank of captain before his honorable discharge in 1994.
Finley has recently become taken with the game of soccer, thanks largely to his son Ryan’s success on the collegiate level. Ryan Finley was a star forward at Duke University, and currently is playing professionally in the USL.
West Point has campaigned Grade 1 winners Awesome Gem, Dream Rush, Flashy Bull, Irish Smoke, Lear's Princess, and Macho Again.
West Point and Spendthrift Farm, owned by Elliot Walden, have teamed up to campaign Freedom Child in 2013, who will run in the 1 1/2 mile Belmont Stakes after a victory in the Peter Pan Stakes (G2).
