Both working for Darley, Marcus and Crystal met in Saratoga in 2010. Marcus came over from Ireland and was working for Johnny Burke at the Training Center in the Lexington Darley rehabilitation division. Valuable knowledge in injury, layup rehab and most importantly-prevention was gained.
Crystal was working for Tim Jones at the Darley Yearling to Two Year Old PreTraining in Aiken SC. Asked to gallop at Green Tree in Saratoga both jumped at the offer.
They bought their first yearling at the 2011 Fasig Tipton October Yearling Sale with the guidance of Christina Welker, who has been instrumental in a few purchases, including their best pinhook- a 7,500 purchase sold at FT Midlantic for 125,000.
They continued galloping for Jones until Darley discontinued the Aiken division.
Large pastures give plenty of space for young growing horses to stretch their legs with full speed running room and good grazing. It is a work in progress but they count it as a blessing to be there and work alongside experienced, reliable and knowledgeable people who share their passion and love for the horse.
The Breeze Sales are the highlight in a horses early training for them, the big debut before they go to the races. The international racing scene comes together in small community, and competition for drafting the next best athletes in racing is fierce. Only the finest athletes make the cut and they strive to offer individuals as such.
