Two noted Thoroughbred farms in Ontario are currently listed for sale. Joey Gee Thoroughbreds, the former Gardiner Farms, is on the market by owner Joe Guerrieri who bought the property three years ago.
Guerrieri, who had built up his racing stable and the farm into a premier training, breeding and lay-up operation, stands the young and promising stallion Seattle Serenade (by Smart Strike), whose first foals will arrive in 2020. He cites the dearth of boarder horses as a major factor.
“I will be downsizing and scaling back to a private operation,” said Guerrieri. “When I bought it I was going to give it three years to try and grow a viable business for a premier public breeding and training facility with the emphasis being high quality care, rehabbing, and start ups. I’ve developed a premier staff with experience on many of the high end private farms.”
Park Stud home of the leading freshman sire in Canada and one of the leaders in North America, Frac Daddy, is also listed for sale. The Mono, ON farm has long been one of the top stallion stations and Canadian breeding operations. The immaculate 100-acre farm is owned by Michael and Laurel Byrne.
Both farms are listed on the Moffat Dunlap real estate website.
