SWEET TAPPER earned black type the day after Thanksgiving at Churchill Downs by placing in the Grade II Mrs. Revere Stakes. Trainer Ian Wilkes won the Mrs. Revere with his other entrant Linda, owned by Whitham Thoroughbreds, with Sweet Tapper finishing third, both horses beating favored European shippers. The next day, Ian began his quest for the Kentucky Derby with McKraken, who won the Sam E. Davis at Tampa Bay. Good luck to trainer Ian Wilkes.

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.
