Owner Bio

My first stab at owning thoroughbreds was to claim a horse at the old Cahokia Downs in Southern Illinois in the late 1960s. Over the years I have at one time or another owned all or a percentage of race horses, broodmares, stallion shares, yearlings and weanlings. I have bought and sold at Sales in Texas, Louisiana, Illinois, Arkansas and Kentucky. I have experienced both success and failure in the business.
