Running Horse Farm was founded in 1969 as a commercial Thoroughbred racehorse breeding farm and been in continuous operation for 32 years. We've had 1 to 5 stallions at stud each year, breeding about 15-30 mares per year on average. Currently we stand 7 stallions, own 12 mares, various babies, etc. Usually, we race 1 or 2 racehorses per year at racetracks in the Southwest. We breed, raise, care for, and break our own horses. As you may know, racehorses are somewhat like a giant blackhole sucking up ALL the money, and more - so, I suppose, the reward is the journey, not the destination...
Running Horse Farm is pleased to present at stud for 2002:
