GSB International

Green Street Bloodstock goes International!


WITH our rapid and substantial growth, Green Street Bloodstock is expanding internationally to bring our client base a wider range of ownership opportunities and a chance at winning remarkable prize money.

GSB International will be expanding our interests first to Singapore, in which the Turf Club offers a great rebate scheme which really minimises costs. Stakes are substantial and paid within a system that allows owners to break even, and often run at a profit, if they are well managed.

GSB has a great head start for this venture! We will be using the services of the highly thought of and extremely experienced David Raphael, best known for his days as the race commentator in Hong Kong, where he called “The pride of South Africa” London News to victory in the QE2 Cup.

The very familiar “voice” turned to bloodstock a few years back and has done phenomenal things for his investors. GSB are privileged to be tapping into his network and knowledge of Asia and Australasia to source horses, he will prove to be an asset in our recruitment drive which is essential to turning big profits for our investors.

Justin Vermaak, Director of GSB, commented: “I am fully confident that our Singapore venture will be profitable for all our owners, in fact I would go as far as say that any SA based owners will have their SA racing portfolios paid for by their Singapore portfolios, so anybody who looks to run their racing ownership career as a business should seriously consider.

“As an example, our first runner was Risky Rockefeller. He drew wide in his prep run and we dropped him out allowing him to run on in an effort to strip fitter for his target race on Singapore Gold Cup day. He ran on for a close 6th. Unfortunately he drew wide again in his target race and came from last off a slow pace, getting beaten under 2 lengths in 5th.

“In these two races he earned SGD$1 800 in “appearance fee” and stake money of SGD$800 for the 6th and SGD$1200 for the 5th, a total of SGD$3 800 in only three weeks, despite not managing a place, these earnings more than paid for his monthly keep, showing a small profit. It is encouraging that a SGD$30 000 first place prize is only a run or two away. A win covers almost a year of training fees in the middle division.
