Welcome to Windhorse Thoroughbreds
Time sure flies when you’re having fun! I am amazed, as my husband John and I just marked our tenth year living on our beautiful Cotton Hill Farm and now in 2019 are excited to be celebrating my fourteenth year in the thoroughbred world.
I started out as a small breeder in 2006 and purchased Cotton Hill Farm in 2009, which we continue to develop and improve to make it the best place to raise New York bred thoroughbreds. We are now a mid-size breeder and sell at public auction and in private sales. We race some of our homebreds and also now manage fun, affordable and successful breeding partnerships. I am very proud to say my first two racing partnerships both produced stakes winners in Mischief Maker and Chasing Bubbles. I am excited to see what our new partnerships will do in the future.
As the number of beautiful horses we breed each year grows, so does our farm. Improvements and construction continue on a regular basis. We are always looking for the next great employee to add to our wonderful team. I am so pleased with the people that live and work on my farm taking care of my horses. I feel fortunate to be building such a great staff and terrific friendships.
Our guiding rule has always been “THE HORSE ALWAYS COMES FIRST” and we believe this is the reason we are breeding and raising strong, well mannered, successful racehorses. We are very proud of what we have accomplished so far with the horses we have bred on our farm. We have raised three stakes winners, two stakes placed colts and numerous winners in our short time in the thoroughbred industry.
As a breeder we believe in taking care of our own. We do our best to keep track of every horse we breed that leaves our care or ownership. When a horse is done racing, and if he or she needs a safe haven, we take them back home to Cotton Hill and always will. One of our future goals is to designate some of Cotton Hill Farm’s 244 acres for a retirement and rescue for horses in need of a safe landing spot. These horses give us so much joy, love, excitement and thrills and it is the responsibility of everyone in this business to make sure they are loved and properly cared for their entire lives.
