EUROPEAN PEDIGREES

 

Horses our owners purchased abroad - or were sent by their European owners - as maidens/just broke their maiden or won Handicaps in England or Ireland. Taking to sunny Southern California these horses have developed into solid competitors - some of them taking us to the world-stage of horseracing - while significantly augmenting their earnings along the way.

Young Horses

Our team takes great joy and satisfaction in bringing on young horses, sent to us by their breeders, purchased privately or at a sale. It is very exciting to be part of these horses' journeys into becoming racehorses, witnessing every stage of their development - mentally and physically, while trying to help them open the avenues to become the best athletes they can be. Please find more about our fine new prospects on our Facebook page.


One of such proud moments was  seeing  Trojan Nation, runner up in the Grade 1 Wood Memorial Stakes at Aqueduct, NY running  in the  2016 Kentucky Derby.

Another highlight was Dice Flavor, bought at the breeze up sales, who after winning the El Camino Real Derby (Gr.3) secured himself a trip to Dubai to run in the 2013 UAE Derby and to go on and win the La Jolla Handicap (Gr.2).

To observe Aggie Engineer becoming one of the best Handicap horses of his era in California was another delight.




 
 

RETIRED RACEHORSES

We have been lucky throughout the years to be able to partner with various private Equestrians and non-profits, like Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance, to find new homes and careers for some of our horses. Whether it is because of lack of enthusiasm for racing, an injury or age, we always wish them well and are proud of the horses they have become.

Flamboyant


Flamboyant got retired from racing 2019 at 8yrs of age after having taken us on exciting journeys across the globe and earned over  $ 1.1 Million in price money. 

The gelding has stayed in the family since and is learning to jump and be productive as a riding horse. 

He is a very elegant mover and very agile over jumps - he likely could have become a high end jumper had he not been so fast as a racehorse!

Surely Swift


Surely Swift got retired from racing 2012 due to not showing much enthusiasm for the game. 

After a short stint as an event horse he found his calling as a show jumper and got a great home in Washington State with  Alison Parker. 

The two have bonded and currently excel in the 1.15m jumper classes.




Hog's Hollow


Hog's Hollow ran for his owner/breeder Derrick Fisher until the end of his 8 year old year - amassed $289'430 in purse earnings and was graded Stakes placed. 

Always enthusiastic about his job Hog's has developed into a genuine show jumper/eventer and continues to compete. He has successfully shown up to Training level eventing and keeps taking ribbons home.


Pride Seeker


Pride Seeker set his sight on a new career after two rather slow runs. 

Melissa Thorson in Montana has taken him on and steadily brought 'Pridefulleigh' up the levels in three day Eventing. 

He has turned into an outstanding horse and now just turning 8 years old is showing at Preliminary Level.
