  • Find a Trusted Advisor

    Find a Trusted Advisor

    Every seminar on how to become involved as a Thoroughbred owner or breeder starts with “find a trusted advisor”. The trouble is, no one tells you HOW to find a trusted advisor. While most of the people involved in the world of racing and breeding are honest and hard-working, sadly, some are not. And even […]

    Lessons Learned Along the Way – Part 6

    Making the vet list. When we finished teasing, Melvin would read off the vet list for the morning. He noticed I was checking off from my list rather than writing down his. After a while, he asked to see my list rather than read off his. Soon, I was given complete responsibility of not only […]

    Lessons Learned Along the Way – Part 5

    Responsibility without authority. Lars once said, “I’m going to throw you to the wolves.” He gave me an assignment as team leader to motivate and guide a team on projects, but without a title, rank, or authority. It was difficult and painful, but in the end I gained the respect of my co-workers and learned […]

    Lessons Learned Along the Way – Part 4

    As hard as this may be to believe today, when I went to my first Keeneland yearling sale with Clovelly Farm in 1973, I was surprised to see that sales prep for most of the farms consisted of bringing the yearlings in about a week before the sale, giving them baths, trimming their feet, and […]

    Lessons Learned Along the Way – Part 3

    Be on time. I came to Kentucky from Maryland and had another stroke of good fortune being hired by Lars la Cour, a master horseman and farm manager who became my mentor, my surrogate father, and my friend. I learned myriad lessons from Lars. Lars sent me to the breeding shed with the mares, which […]

    Lessons Learned Along the Way – Part 2

    Leave the price tag on the van. Working with hunters and jumpers at Nimrod Farm in Weston, Connecticut, was my first exposure to seriously valuable horses. But along with the expensive show horses were the “hacks,” school horses of no particular breed used for lessons. Jack Adams was the manager there, and he taught me […]

    Lessons Learned Along the Way – Part 1

    At the age of 12, I finally badgered my father into buying me a horse. We opened the Yellow Pages and called the first listing, Fantasy Farm Stables. Ordinarily, that would be a recipe for disaster, but in this case it was the luckiest break I ever got. A woman named Dawn Atlas was the […]
