Half Ours is a Thoroughbred race horse. Bred by Brilliant Stables and born Kentucky on March 27, 2003, he was a contender for the Triple Crown in 2006. A striking grey roan like his sire, he is a son of Unbridled's Song out of the winning mare Zing by Storm Cat. Zing is a full sister to stakes winner Yankee Gentleman. Grade 1 winner Key Phrase is the second dam of Half Ours.

After a workout on June 21, 2007 at Belmont Park, Half Ours suffered a fracture to a hind cannon bone and had surgery to insert two screws in the leg. His future is still undecided.

Half Ours now stands at Taylor Made farm as a stallion.


Half Ours, originally owned by Aaron and Marie Jones in partnership with Barry K. Schwartz, was sold in November 2006 for a record 6.1 million dollars at Keeneland November breeding stock sale. In a dissolution of the partnership, Aaron Jones outbid Schwartz for the colt.

Laid off for nineteen months due a fractured ankle incurred in the Three Chimney's Juvenile, Half Ours returned to the races in December 2006.

Trained by Todd Pletcher, in his seven lifetime starts Half Ours was ridden by John Velazquez.
