Owner Bio

Glen Hill Farm is a thoroughbred breeding and racing operation based in Ocala, Florida. Our goal is to breed, raise, and race horses that compete and win at the highest levels of the thoroughbred business. Leonard and Bernice Lavin bought their first horse in 1966, and the first foal was born at Glen Hill Farm in 1971. We have bred or raced over 80 stakes winners, including One Dreamer, Relaunch, Convenience, Top Rung, Concept Win, Repriced, Rich in Spirit, Closeout, Banned, Marketing Mix, Wishing Gate, and others. In 2008, Craig Bernick took over as President and COO, working closely with his grandfather.
