Our program combines selecting the superior individual and then developing the young horse into a winning athlete. Combined with the facilities of Abracadabra Farm we can precisely and consistently build a racehorse. We are proud of our graduates, please visit our HIGHLIGHTS PAGE

"I handpick out all my horses the same way. I look at the overall group that's on the grounds, and I try to find the horse I think is a balanced athlete and well-proportioned. I want them to have a package that fits together and to have a long, lovely walk. I also look for the horse that seems smart and has a good attitude. When these babies get to a sale, it's a new environment for them. You can see some of them kind of wither. They're worried, and they're nervous. Then there are others that seem to say, 'Wow, this is a lot of fun.' They take it all in, and they enjoy the interaction with people. When you come back and look at them over and over again, they still have a positive and perky attitude. Those are the kind of horses I like to buy." --Barry Berkelhammer
