RED HORSE BLOODSTOCK LLC
Red Horse Bloodstock has the welfare of the Thoroughbred at the heart of everything we do. We hope to combine the best training methods from Britain and the United States. Our horses get a simple routine, designed to make them relax and get the very best from the horse as naturally as possible.
We firmly believe that a happy horse will perform better on the track than a horse that has had his or her natural instincts curtailed by the modern day methods in which most racehorses are trained.
Our horses will be trained at their home farm not at the busy hectic and stressful training centers or racetracks and will spend as much time in their paddocks as possible. We prefer to race drug free where possible and train on safe surfaces. All of our horses are tracked for life.

THE RED HORSE
The Red Thoroughbred racehorse comprises just c22% of all Thoroughbred Racehorses in the USA today but despite this the Red Horse has won c20% of all Thoroughbred Racehorses won 53% of Triple Crowns and won 35% of Kentucky Derbys. in the USA. Furthermore, the same in also true in Europe. In the English, Irish, and French Derby’s the Red horse has outperformed its gene pool percentage.
Today, c90% of modern Thoroughbred’s can trace their genes back to just 1 Red horse, ‘Eclipse’ resulting in the predominance of the Darley Arabian line over the lines of the other two founding stallions the Godolphin Arabian and the Byerley Turk. Arguably, the four greatest Racehorses ever seen, Secretariat, Man O War, Sea Bird and Phar Lap, were all Red.
