The excitement of thoroughbred racing partnerships at Parting Glass Racing began in 2001 with Tom Gallo, a horse industry and partnership expert, and Joan Desadora, owner of The Parting Glass Pub in Saratoga Springs, NY. Our business concept for thoroughbred partnerships originated from our love of horses and the excitement of racing combined with the Irish Pub tradition of getting people together and having a great time.

Parting Glass Racing strives to provide stellar customer service and a complete racehorse ownership experience that lets you enjoy all that racing has to offer. For the cost of a vacation, you can be part of a unique, full-service racing organization with few responsibilities, many benefits, and lots of fun. Now is a great time to experience the thrill of owning a racehorse.

Our strategy is simple and straightforward for each of our thoroughbred racing partnerships in the Parting Glass horse racing partnership stable:

  • After careful genetic and confirmation analysis and a complete veterinary exam, we purchase the best New York-Bred specimens we can find. New York-Breds run with the advantage of bigger purses and restricted races along with a Multi-Million Dollar restricted Stakes Program. Typically all of our current prospects qualify for this program. New York Racing in partnership with The Resorts World Casino boasts the richest purse structure in the country, bolstering a very lucrative racing program. Add that to a very well funded breeding program and YOU as an owner of a New York-Bred race horse have fantastic earning potential. That's the PGR formula for success!
  • We offer limited shares in our horse racing partnerships to interested parties, concentrating on fillies for their residual value, but also buying precocious colts we feel have the potential for greatness.
  • Each owner enjoys full ownership privileges which includes a complete set of NYRA credentials providing all access to your race horse magic kingdom. 
  • Parting Glass Racing not only distributes purses and owners' awards, but also fun and spine-tingling excitement for the whole family.
  • Parting Glass Racing dissolves the LLC when the horse has been retired from racing. Horses are disbursed through claiming races or public auction. We also pride ourselves in finding second lives for our beloved race horses in horse retirement and re-training facilities run by Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance accredited organizations.



Parting Glass Racing is dedicated to providing its thoroughbred partnership owners education, communication, and information. When you become a horse racing partner, you will have access to as much information as possible related to our race horse partnerships by:

  • Communicating on a bi-weekly basis via e-mail with news and updates about your and the other PGR horses. This helps new thoroughbred partnership owners better understand our training decisions. 
  • Issuing a weekly newsletter that highlights the PGR thoroughbred partnerships horse updates, offers new information about upcoming events and new LLCs.
  • Facilitating continuous access to the PGR horses and the managing member, Tom Gallo. 
  • Parting Glass Racing keeps you well informed of the operations, maintenance and costs of your thoroughbred holdings. Parting Glass Racing does not mark up expenses. Members pay the actual costs of racehorse ownership.
  • Organizing meetings and events for PGR members, their families, and the general public is a unique perk which sets our organization apart. The agenda typically includes a discussion with racing industry leaders, or handicapping experts and offers the chance for owners to ask questions, learn more about thoroughbreds, racing, handicapping, partnerships and socialize with fellow racing fans. People have made long lasting friends and met fellow racing companions solidifying their love for this legendary sport!
