Belvoir Welcomes New Owners

If there’s one thing racing needs more than new bettors, it’s new owners.

The game took a mini-step towards fulfilling that need recently when two young baseball players bought into a piece of the action in horses trained and owned in part by Vann Belvoir.

They would be Kyle Schneider, a first-time owner who has 10 percent of a 6-year-old horse named Miles Heir, and Sean O’Leary, who owns 10 percent of a 5-year-old mare named Single N Lovin It. Both run in bottom-level claiming races.

Schneider is a 21-year-old right-handed pitcher for Glendale Community College. O’Leary, 28, describes himself as a right-handed knuckleballer who’s also the pitching coach at Monrovia High School.

“They’re both local guys who came to gamble at the track and eventually became owners,” Belvoir said. “This is the kind of curiosity that hopefully begins to re-generate interest in the sport.”

Miles Heir, a winner at 10-1 on Feb. 10, finished fifth in Sunday’s second race, a one-mile event with a $17,000 purse.
