Our approach to buying and selling mares and yearlings is simple, buy high quality. Expenses are the same whether you buy a cheap horse or an expensive horse. We always buy a group of 4-5. Often 2 or 3 in the group will carry the inevitable 1 or 2 that don't play out the way we would like. Careful mating selections to give young mares the best opportunity at producing a race horse are extremely important. Some of the best race fillies and mares haven't the best luck with great racing progeny. It's not about the luck in reality; finding the right cross, being raised on our limestone rich land with natural watershed and highly experienced team are just the necessary combination. Our land speaks for itself, with our outstanding Champion Shanghai Bobby in addition to the 4 other champions raised on this farmland, high percent of stakes winners bred and sold (18%) and highly experienced personnel prove we can produce the "good" horse that people want to buy.
