Evaluate your stock for multi-purpose.  Reduce costly start-up mistakes.  Develop an exciting business and a productive race program. I’m passionate about giving newcomers to Arabian racing a positive start in this exciting sport!

7 years ago Claudia and her late husband Dan introduced my wife and me to this sport. We knew nothing of breeding and racing Arabian Horses and the amount of support and knowledge they imparted to us is what has make the difference for Uptown Arabian Racing. Her knowledge and experience the past 25 years as a top breeder, owner and runner of Arabian Race Horses is unparalleled.  “Build and manage your herd like a professional sports team…because they are athletes”, is what Claudia told me, the first day I asked how do you guys do this racing thing?   I find myself going back to that very profound statement every time we breed a horse or when we are racing. It’s the best single bit of advice we have ever received.   Don’t get me wrong- there  is a lot more to know about racing Arabians,  but  if you keep that at the core, you will be successful.
Claudia continues to be a great asset and ambassador for the Arabian Horse and for Arabian Racing".

• Stephanie Corum

Stephanie Corum
Frederick, MD

I have worked in the Arabian racing industry since 1993 starting with the Arabian Jockey Club where I maintained the race records, developed an annual Stallion Directory and specialized in writing pedigree pages for Arabian sales catalogues. When I started my freelance writing business, SC Equine Enterprises, in 1998 I began writing “Equi-Tech”, a monthly column for Arabian Finish Line magazine. I have since written hundreds of magazine articles for a wide variety of equine publications including Modern Arabian Horse, The Horse, Stable Management and Chronicle of the Horse.

I have also worked with private clients throughout the Arabian industry. I have written The Inside Track, a monthly newsletter for the Eastern Arabian Racing Alliance, for 15 years. I have also handled promotional and marketing efforts for the Arabian Racing Cup for a number of years and was the Chief Operating Officer of the Arabian Race Horse Sales Company.

I have authored two illustrated children’s books, Goats with Coats and Antics in the Attic with a third one in the works. Most recently, I wrote the forward to the book Orzel, Scottsdale’s Legendary Arabian Stallion, by Tobi Lopez Taylor.

In 2014, after the sudden passing of editor Bobbi Patscheider, I took over the editing and publishing duties of Arabian Finish Line. In less than two years, I have modernized the magazine, added a digital version, revamped the Stallion Guide, created an international presence, updated the website and added an extensive social media scene.

My educational background includes a Master’s degree in animal science specializing in equine genetics from the University of Kentucky. In addition to my more than 20-years in the Arabian industry, I have been a lifelong horsewoman, rider and competitor currently specializing in dressage. I own an Arabian/Dutch Warmblood mare and a purebred Arabian filly.

I am first and foremost a lifelong horsewoman.

My first experience in Arabian racing was in 1979, when as the horse manager for a large Colorado cattle ranch, I was asked to manage the race career of an Arabian filly on the Western circuit. This is where I first met Dr Sam Harrison.

In 1982 I founded Odyssey Arabians with my sister, Marge Burnett in Northern California. We were small breeders of show horses originally and by 1986 exclusively racehorses. We raced in California first 2 years, and then branched out in 1988 to race in Tampa, Florida and at Delaware Park.

We received our first Darley nomination in 1989 with our gelding, Negask, and went on to receive 3 more Darley nominations with our homebreds, but our biggest honor was when our last homebred, Sudden Mischief, was named Darley Older Horse champion.

I founded Race Street Management Inc in 1987 with (my soon-to-be husband at the time), Randy Gault.Services include: consulting, management, sales, acquisitions, marketing, and appraisals.

We have successfully syndicated many great horses, including Shawna Dew (named 1986 IAHA National Champion race mare, and 1987 and 1988 Darley Champion Older Mare) and national Champion racehorse and champion sire, By Golly, later sold to Mickey and Michelle Morgan.

We have put together and managed numerous partnerships over the years.

We’ve managed careers of many great racehorses, including Darley Champions Oh By Gosh, Southern Storm, and FMR Hadassah, Horse of the Year and Hall of Fame.

We were the founding partner of Equest International in 1991, an Arabian racehorse auction company.Over 7 years, Equest held 9 auctions at Los Alamitos, Delaware Park, Hollywood Park, Barretts Sales Center, and Cre Run Enterprises’ farm. This was instrumental in opening up the international market;

We first visited UAE and Qatar in 1992 and been traveling there ever since, instrumental in helping development of breeding and racing programs in both countries, supplying them with foundation bloodstock.

In private sales, Race Street has sold over 750 horses including significant herd sales and dispersals including the Lucas Arabian Stud, Colonial Ridge, Trackside Farm, and Darley Stud US herd.Many international stakes winners and producers were sold or acquired through Race Street.

Since 2002, Race Street has served as Shadwell’s US Arabian representative, managing and promoting their stallions here in the U.S including Chndaka, Kaolino, Falina Des Fabries, Nivour de Cardonne, Madjani, Al Saoudi, and No Risk Al Maury. Also other stallion managed.

In late 1980’s to early 1990’s, served as Vice Chairman and Secretary of the Arabian Racing Association of California. I met Dr Ed Allred, who invited Arabians to race at Los Alamitos Race Course in Los Angeles. He set up an Arabian futurity, which I’m proud to take credit in naming: Drinkers of the Wind and Daughters of the Desert. They became the top Juvenile races in the world, both Grade 1’s and the highest purse in the US when one year the Drinkers topped $180,000.

I served on the original Arabian Jockey Club Executive Committee (and various off shoots); was a foundation committee member of the Graded Stakes committee; was a foundation committee member of the Racing Hall of Fame and Tent of Honor, and later served as Chairman; wasappointed to the Arabian Racing Cup Board of Stewards in 2004, and currently serving as Chief Steward.

At the 2015 Darley Awards in Hollywood, I was immensely grateful to have received the HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Mubarak Lifetime Achievement Darley Award.

As you can see, I’m “all in” to racing. It has given Randy and I a lifetime of enjoyment, excitement, worldwide travels, and a community of great people. I look forward to sharing that experience through racing partnerships as well.

• Ken and Valerie Danyluk

Universal City, TX

Ken Danyluk has been training Arabian race horses since 1989. He started racing in Canada with his own homebreds, primarily of Polish/Crabbet breeding. He is a former member of the Alberta Arabian Racing Association. In the early 1990's, Alberta had in excess of 150 Arabians running. However, Ken's success motivated him to try running his horses in the USA, where his KD Arabians excelled. In 1995 Ken relocated to Texas, which offered year round Arabian racing at that time.

His dedication to Arabian racing prompted Ken to become a board member for the Texas Arabian Breeders Association, and he continues to serve to this day. For several years he has enjoyed summers in Colorado at the Arapahoe Park meet, where he was leading Arabian trainer in 2012.

As Arabian racing in the US developed, Ken has raced in multiple states from coast to coast. Ken continues to raise a foal or two each year, and trains his own and clients' horses. He has a reputation for developing horses that run competitively for many years, some even into their teens. Both Ken's own horses and his clients' horses have earned Darley nominations and awards.

Valerie Lynn Danyluk was racing her own homebreds and very active with Colorado Owners and Breeders of Racing Arabians when she met Ken. She has coordinated various educational and promotional events in Colorado to introduce people to Arabian racing. A lifelong fan of horse racing, Valerie loves to encourage new people to become involved with the sport. She and Ken share a passion for classic Arabian bloodlines, and are grateful for the opportunity to help promote Arabian racing through managing racing partnerships.

• Joe & Susan Wilis

Pico Rivero, CA

Joe and Susan have been involved with Arabians since 1996 when Susan bought her first, a 2-year-old Crabbet bred filly, which she started under saddle herself. Soon another followed, a gray grandson of Hi-Fashion Camaar. This colt went on to win not only his local halter show class, but also on the racetrack. From that experience, the passion for Arabian racing was born.

Susan has raced horses in partnership with her dear friend, Cindy Scharli, for over ten years with success, the most notable being PJ Miss Zuby. A past California Older Mare of the Year, Zuby was nominated twice for a Darley Award in the Older Mare category. In 2011 she won two stakes races one week apart… the second race beating a past Darley 4 Year Old Colt of the Year, Drinkers of the Wind Winner, and a future Darley Horse of the Year in the same race.

Joe and Susan have served on the Board of Directors of the Arabian Racing Association of California. Susan has served as Secretary, Vice Chairman, and Chairman. Joe served as Treasurer for three years. While Chairman, Susan was instrumental in bringing the Sheikh Mansoor Festival to California.

They both are currently involved on the national scene with the Arabia Jockey Club… Susan on the Special Projects Committee and Joe as a Commissioner.

With loads of experience that consists of 100% partnerships, they are well-equipped to take you on the ride of your life.

• Amanda Roxborough

Jupiter, FL

I have always loved horses, and grew up competing in horse shows every weekend possible. My need for speed launched my career in horse racing when I was 17. I dreamt of becoming a jockey and worked very hard to fulfill that dream. I have had an exciting and successful career in the world of horse racing as a Jockey, Trainer, and exercise rider. I have ridden top class horses, galloped two Kentucky Derby runners, and worked all across America and Canada. I spent three winter race seasons in Dubai, UAE working for HH Sheikh Hamdan’s Red Stable, where I galloped both thoroughbreds and Arabians.

I have since retired from my daily dream job to take a creative path, and it is the path that has driven me to promote the sport that I love. As a producer, I work on national shows with NBC and ESPN horse racing, as well as working as Senior Producer with my company, Kylar Productions. I covered the US Arabian Grade 1 races held in Kentucky at both Keeneland and Churchill Downs, producing content for Abu Dhabi TV and Emirates Equestrian Federation. I also produced a feature for the Arabian Jockey Club promoting the Arabian horse exhibit at the Kentucky Horse Park. I am proud to be the recipient of the 2014 Darley Award for Best TV Presenter, and served as the US representative on the Media and Communications panel at the 2014 World Arabian Horse Racing Conference in London.

I am the co-founder and Racing Manager of Sport of Queens Racing syndicate in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I manage a group of members who have invested in thoroughbred horse ownership, and provide monthly meetings and social events to educate and entertain our group to develop racing fans and new owners.

My expertise in communication and creative mindset benefit my role as Racing Manager. My skill set includes horse selection – making decisions to bring the horse along at its own pace, and trainer selections – placing horses with trainers to give them the best chance at excelling once their racing career begins. Most horses, managed and spotted wisely, can progress to very successful careers. I have a strong horsemanship foundation and over 30 years of professional experience in racing. I have the ability to travel to various venues throughout the year to watch the horses train and race. I am committed to representing owners and managing the horses as if they were my own.

Open and honest communication is imperative, keeping owners abreast of situations in a timely manner.

I am passionate about introducing new people to racing, which makes partnership management all the more fun. Looking forward to sharing that experience in Arabian racing partnerships with you.
