VIP Stable is an American harness racing partnership group founded in 1999 by Ed O'Connor.
Ed O'Connor, a lifelong harness racing fan organized the initial horse ownership group in 1999 with a group of 4 investors by purchasing an untested horse named Aberdasher, who was developed into a stakes horse with 17 wins by trainer Greg Trotto.
Unlike thoroughbred racing where public syndicates are widespread, Harness Racing has a limited number of public partnerships (i.e. those open to the general public as opposed to private groups of often friends or family members). VIP Stable is one of the few harness racing partnerships to gain national prominence in the sport. It draws its members from all parts of the United States.
2006-2007 Growth VIP Stable has grown rapidly in terms of partners, horses, and influence in harness racing. During 2006 and 2007, VIP Stable has expanded to have divisions of the stable racing regularly in New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Illinois.

Famous quotes containing the word stable:
“If it is to be done well, child-rearing requires, more than most activities of life, a good deal of decentering from ones own needs and perspectives. Such decentering is relatively easy when a society is stable and when there is an extended, supportive structure that the parent can depend upon.”
—David Elkind (20th century)
