Our horses are trained by Bruce Brown. Bruce got his start as an assistant trainer to Tim Hills and then to Bill Mott. Bruce has been doing very well since he went out on his own two years ago, with a 20%-plus win percentage in 2008 and over 15% in 2009 and 2010. So far in 2012, he’s back near the 20% mark overall. Bruce welcomes CVF partners to his barn to watch morning workouts.
We spend a lot of time looking for the right horse to buy. We watch the workouts at the sales, have the horses checked by our vet, and consult with knowledgeable advisers. Everything else equal, we’ll look for a New York-bred, because of the extra money available in the state-bred incentive program.
We’re looking forward to having you join us in the winners circle!
