Choosing a training facility for your horse is a big decision. When the stakes are high, wouldn’t you prefer to have as much information as possible? Here's what Margaux Farm has to offer clients, and why we stand out among our competitor’s.
Facilities. Horses have access to a 1 1/16 mile straight track, 5 furlong undulating gallop, and a 1 1/4 mile turf course. In addition to three separate training tracks, the farm is equipped with an arena, covered round pens, starting gates, walkers and newly renovated barns.
Environment. Our training program allows young horses to fully develop both mentally and physically. Set on 640 acres of land, horses train in a quiet environment while spending their nights turned out in large rolling fields. Horses based at racetracks and training centers spend nearly 23 hours of their day standing in a stall. Our horses are happy, and enjoy their job more when allowed outside to be a horse.
Communication. The staff at Margaux keeps owners up to date during each stage of the training process by providing weekly training notes and regular phone calls.
Individualization. The detail oriented staff at Margaux creates individualized training plans for each starting, freshening and rehabilitation horse on the farm. Proof can be seen through our results. Recent Margaux trainees include G1 winners Divisidero, Grand Arch, and G1 stakes placed fillly, Lightstream.
Location. Margaux Farm is located in the heart of the bluegrass and is a short shipping distance from Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Turfway Park and Indiana Grand. Farm training runs 11:00 am – 1:30 pm, Monday thru Saturday.
Horses that freshen at Margaux Farm benefit greatly from our farm training environment. As opposed to the traditional lay-out of racetracks and training centers, horses in Margaux’s training program are able to maintain top condition all the while enjoying the full benefits of pasture turnout.
With personalized care and attention to detail, Margaux’s training team works hard to achieve the desired results for each horse.
Among our most recent freshening graduates is multiple graded stakes winner Grand Arch, winner of the 2015 Shadwell Turf Mile Stakes.
