I agree you would be better doing 20 @ 50,000 and save the 9,000,000 for expenses. But if you spent the entire 10,000,000 up front think she would give you your best shot to turn a profit. But I don't think people buy a horse like this to make a profit, I think they buy because they can, and at the same time they hope it might work out financially. If you were solely motivated by profits, I have an easier scenario, don't buy any horses, especially mares. I have 2, each is now pregnant for the 2nd time. I am a very small time person, i cant imagine what the expenses are for those who get in over their heads. Think a couple years ago they found a large number of mares owned by Warren in a field somewhere on the way to slaughter, I know he said he knew nothing about that, but shortly thereafter he said he was getting out of the breeding business. I am sure at Keeneland here in the next week you will see the flip side of the big time mares, you will see 15 year old mares standing in the ring not even bring 2,000. Sad to me when I see that happening.

Here was a mare the Wygods unloaded yesterday who was a super runner in day, almost a million dollars on the track, 20 years old. On her page you can see Storm Cat, AP Indy as sires she visited. Now time to get her off the books.
