Introducing the Racing Class of 2019-2020


Winchester Place Thoroughbreds, LLC is a full service nursery and multi-faceted farming operation designed for the nurture, raising and racing of Thoroughbred horses. Winchester Place Thoroughbreds, LLC was originally located amidst a 2,000 acre farming operation on the South Dakota-Minnesota border. In July of 2010 the operation was moved to a farm in the heart of the Kentucky bluegrass only 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland Race Track, the horse farms of Midway, and 5 minutes from Paris. In 2012 Winchester Place acquired the historic Eagle Valley Farm. An additional 562 acres with 101 additional stalls, Eurocisers and state of the art training barns, Winchester Place is adding to its pledge of being a full service farm.

From our first crop of foals bred at the farm we have produced an undefeated two year old champion at Canterbury Park in the K.B. Kid.  Horses owned by Winchester Place have sold at the Keeneland, Ocala and Barrett’s Select Two Year Old inTraining Sales. We are proud of its breeding program. With each new crop we are looking to develop the next really great horse.

After racing, our horses find new homes as show horses and eventers, competing at the highest levels. We are proud of the care given our horses and the management and staff who provide the utmost attention to every detail. See the About Us page for a write up in Thoroughbred Charities of America’s newsletter featuring Lorie Michaels in the “Owners’ Corner”.

At Winchester Place Thoroughbreds, LLC we are dedicated to breeding, raising and racing the outstanding horse.

ALEX CANCHARI, a successful leading rider at Canterbury Park year after year is moving his tack to the Kentucky circuit beginning September 1. He already has mounts lined up September 1 at Ellis Park. ALEX has been a large part of the success over the years for WINCHESTER PLACE THOROUGHBREDS, LLC, always giving the horse he was riding his best. ALEX is a really good kid and we will miss him at Canterbury. WINCHESTER PLACE THOROUGHBREDS, LLC  thanks ALEX for all of his brilliant rides and we wish him nothing but racing success going onward and upward. THANK YOU, ALEX!

WATERTONIAN, a two year old WINCHESTER PLACE homebred colt by NEKO BAY out of unraced MY WANITA (a full sister to multi-millionaire and successful race horse BALTO STAR) will begin his training this fall with ERIC HEITZMANN. Sidelined from early training by throat issues, we are hoping that he will overcome the early setbacks and be a successful race horse.  We will keep you posted. WATERTONIAN is pictured as a yearling on the left in the photo below.
