My name is Ryan Patterson and I own Graded Stakes Limited. I have been a horse racing fan since childhood, frequently visiting my local tracks, River Downs and Turfway Park.

The primary focus of my website is to discuss my greatest passion; horse racing.

Below are a few highlights of my career.

  • I work as a consultant for SouthCoast Bloodstock and my bloodstock writings have been featured in ads for stallions like Concord Point.
  • I am one of four managing partners tasked with running the horse racing syndicate group NorthStar Thoroughbreds.
  • I worked as an on-air personality at Turfway Park where I interview jockeys and trainers in the paddock as well as offer my selections.
  • Work as a credentialed member of the media to cover races like the Kentucky Derby and the two day Breeders Cup series.

Some of my other interests include college football, charity work and music. I’m a die hard supporter of my hometown football team, the Cincinnati Bearcats. I grew up rooting for the Maryland Terrapins in basketball and my all time favorite Maryland player is PG Greivis Vasquez. I also love the Cincinnati Reds.

I contribute regularly to several other publications. Please send me an email if you are interested in my freelance writing services or placing an advertisement on this site.
