On Monday, you have an opportunity to meet Jack and Laurie Wolf at the Breakfast of Champions.
The Wolfs own horses competing at the highest levels, including “Itsaknockout,” who attracted attention last week as both a Kentucky Derby contender and tongue-in-cheek prognosticator of the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight! Fresh from the Derby.
Jack and Laurie will join us May 11 to share some amazing stories about the Sport of Kings. Both longtime racing fans, the Wolfs founded Starlight Racing in 2000 when they purchased six yearlings at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky July sale.
Among the group was a bay colt by Harlan who developed into multiple Grade 1 winner Harlan’s Holiday and launched Starlight into racing’s upper echelon. A native of Louisville, Kentucky, Jack worked as a teacher and hedge fund manager with Columbus Partners in Atlanta before retiring to concentrate on racing.
Jack also orchestrated the launch of the Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance (TAA), the industry’s first broad-based initiative dedicated to helping retired Thoroughbreds, and he serves as board president of the TAA. A native of Louisiana, Laurie serves as co-managing partner of StarLadies Racing, Starlight’s new all-female partnership, and also serves on the board of the Backside Learning Center at Churchill Downs. The couple resides in Louisville and Saratoga Springs, New York.
