Team Valor

Team Valor

Team Valor Stable LLC is an American Thoroughbred horse racing stable based in Versailles, Kentucky. It was founded by Barry Irwin and Jeff Siegel who create partnerships with racing enthusiasts to race Thoroughbred horses at major racing venues primarily in North America.

In early July of 2007, Barry Irwin acquired the equity position held by Jeff Siegel and changed the name of the operation to Team Valor International.

In keeping with the new name, Team Valor became more internationally focused as Irwin proposed to seek out more excellent stock abroad, having proven earlier that it could be just as lucrative and exciting as finding runners in North America. Today, more than half of Team Valor's stable was prospected outside the United Stakes.

Under the guidance of stable manager Barry Irwin, Team Valor has campaigned 13 International Champions and Highweights, these being:

Ipi Tombe (Zim) -- Horse of the Year in Dubai
