Caring for Thoroughbreds is all we have known and done for nearly 70 years at Winter Quarter. We offer the unique ability to apply four lifetimes of knowledge and experience toward the daily care and management of your horse to an athlete whose abilities are given the best chance to be proven on the racetrack.

Horses in our care are of the best quality in the world, grazing on the best land in the world. That is the single reason storied breeders Hal Price Headley, Nelson Bunker Hunt, and most recently, Sheikh Hamdan Maktoum (Shadwell Farm) have located right next door.

Our clients know their horses are given freedom to grow in large Bluegrass pastures while receiving daily hands-on education and care.

All of our Grade I stakes horses, from GOLDEN PHEASANT to the supreme ZENYATTA, have been year-round residents at Winter Quarter. For this reason we accept only a very limited number of seasonal mares.
