Neiman Marcus Christmas Bokk 2008 - Thoroughbred Racing Stable Package
As to the $10M question of: will this package get sold?
You want the best, you go to the best. You want a working, turnkey, in-the-running thoroughbred racing enterprise right out of the starting gate? You go to Three Chimneys Farm. The legendary Kentucky farm has managed some of racing's winningest thoroughbreds, including history's only undefeated triple crown winner (a little guy named Seattle Slew). For this exclusive package, you get the works because Three Chimneys means business.
They will build you a stable of 12-15 thoroughbreds and with your input will train them, house them, select races, enter them in races, provide you a personal racing concierge, and manage the entire enterprise for the next four years. As the owner, you get to name your stable and any unnamed horses, design your own silks, attend races, pose for pictures, give quotes to the media ... and keep all the purses and trophies.
Call 1.877.9NM.GIFT for details, and stock up on ascots.

I'll consult with my wife to see if it can be added to the list for this year :D
Will anyone pony up?
"We'll see," said Case Clay, the president of Three Chimneys. "Everybody has a little concern, but what better time to have a little levity and fantasy?"
All kidding aside $10M for 10 horses and all upkeep, training, vet bills, et al for 4-years? It could be a bargain. Plenty of new rich owners have done far worse by trying to reivent the wheel and spending like fools with each mistake.
