Sam Lyons is Racing Manager at Grand Syndicates, where the focus is on buying and racing moderately-priced yet talented horses and having a lot of fun along the way. We talk to him about how the racehorse syndication process works including the selection of horses and trainers, and the thrill of winning a Group 1 with Behemoth – the $6,000 horse that has now won $1.3 million after taking out the Memsie Stakes at Caulfield.
