Welcome To The 21st Century Thoroughbred



My name is Calvin Carter.

Hello and welcome to Classic Champion Thoroughbreds, LLC: a new vision, standard of excellence for an old industry. Classic Champion Thoroughbreds is an innovative bloodstock consulting firm and leader in cutting-edge software analysis of Thoroughbred breeding, sales and race potential.

From foal to finish line, If you are racing Thoroughbreds, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds can help owners and trainers spot their horses in stakes races where they will have the most success by analyzing the profiles of all the horses entered in the race. To learn more about how that works you can visit my YouTube Channel here.

If you are buying horses at auction, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds can provide clients with a detailed analysis of horses at the sale. Or, if you already have a team in place to evaluate the conformation and physicals of sale horses, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds can provide you with a list of horses that have the top Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® and best breeding to be a successful racehorse.

Unlike other companies that provide automatic computer-generated pedigree analysis of yearlings at auction, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds LLC personally handpicks from the sales catalog all yearlings to be profiled at auction based upon their breeding. And, Classic Champion Thoroughbreds LLC has profiled yearlings at auction that resulted in two classic winners and four that are classic-placed.

In 2016, we debuted our Classic Champion Thoroughbred Profile® software as a sales analytical tool at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. From that sale, we had four colts that went on to compete in the 2018 Kentucky Derby: Best of Sale Pick Good Magic (2017 Eclipse Champion Two Year Old Male), Vino Rosso (2019 Eclipse Champion Older Dirt Male), Solomini and Free Drop Billy.

Country House is a colt we profiled at the 2017 Keeneland September Yearling Sale and he won the 2019 Kentucky Derby.

In 2018, we profiled Mr. Big NewsMax Player, Belichick and Clayton as yearlings at auction. Mr. Big News finished third in the 2020 Kentucky Derby. Max Player finished third in the Belmont Stakes. Belichick and Clayton raced in Canada. Belichick won the Breeders’ Stakes and finished second in the Queen’s Plate. Clayton is dual classic-placed with a third in the Queen’s Plate and second in the Prince of Wales Stakes.

2023 Kentucky Derby Winner Mage is a colt we profiled at the 2021 Keeneland September Yearling Sale.

The ability to know the potential of a horse before he goes to the breeding shed, sales ring or racetrack is of utmost importance. Since the 2016 debut of our software as a sales analysis tool, we now have a total of 144 horses profiled at auction that have won or placed in national and international stakes competition including two classic winners and four classic-placed horses.
