Give me your opinion on this baby, and if you think investing in him to come to Illinois would be worth taking

Decent bloodlines. Gramps (Seeking The Gold) was an excellent sire.

I dunno. So close to racing (being a 2 year old) that I think conformation and 1 - 2 furlong breeze times / stride length analysis are needed to properly evaluate this one.

Got any pictures?

Great pedagree, but how much  dollar for your investment?  Sire is in Ven. now, first crop is 4, 5 winners from 15.  Unraced brood with 5 winners from 10 foals, but no standouts.  I personally am not a fan of unraced broods.  If you can afford for this horse to never step foot on the track, go for it.  But if you want a chance to not lose money, play the claiming game.
Just my opinion though

Would not, at least unless it's a really athletic looking horse and a good mover.  There's not much pedigree there, so the individual has to really look like a racehorse to make this a decent bet.  Remember what it costs to keep a horse in training--$20-30K a year, once you include training, vet, shoeing, shipping, etc.  You can buy a pretty decent yearling for the price of a couple of years' training bills.

Cheap horses are really expensive in the long run.  Better to get together with a bunch of people, put together a partnership, and buy something better.

Or, as jgp says, you can claim a ready-made racehorse.  There's less upside going that way, but also less downside, since you have a pretty good idea of what you're getting.  At least you should have some immediate cash flow.
