C2 Racing Stable, LLC
C2 Racing Stable is a Thoroughbred Racing Stable owned and operated by brothers Clint Cornett of Flower Mound, Texas and Mark Cornett of Naples, Florida.
Clint had been wanting to get back in the game based on the brothers previous horse racing success in the early 2000's and in mid-2021, Clint formed C2 Racing Stable with one purpose in mind, running the first weekend in May, the Kentucky Derby.
Mark having 26 years of success as an owner, racing manager and bloodstock agent, he was more than willing to take on the challenge. He had past success evaluating and successfully purchasing thoroughbreds like Blind Luck and Dubai Majesty, both who were Eclipse Award winners.
Since 2000, The Cornett's have posted some staggering numbers for themselves and their respective clients without spending recklessly or campaigning a huge stable. The Cornett's and their clients have compiled 113 stakes wins with horses that were purchased privately, which includes 14 Grade I wins, 43 Graded Stakes wins along with a total of 85 Graded Stakes placings.
Included in these wins are two Eclipse Award winners that won both the Kentucky Oaks and the Breeders Cup Filly and Mare Sprint in 2010. Private purchases completed by Mark Cornett for the brothers and clients have won 1041 races with total earnings in excess of $15,000,000 million.
C2 Racing Stable hit the ground running in 2021 with the private purchase of White Abarrio, the 2022 Holy Bull (G3) and Curlin Florida Derby (G1) winner who has secured his spot in the starting gate for the 148th Kentucky Derby on May 7, 2022.
