Nightly Delusions
He was nothing like his name. In fact, we frequently called him “Afternoon Delites”. Unfortunately, injury cut his career short. He has passed away. 
Born in Arizona on March 23, 2004, and was very lightly raced. He won his first start at Turf Paradise on February 2, 2007, and was leading the field in his second race on March 17, 2007, when he bowed a tendon.​ He has passed away.

Tohono Dancer
She bowed both tendons at the track but went on to become a champion jumper but now she is retired. Her favorite thing to do was to eat! Unfortunately she became very ill and we had to say good bye to her.

Luv to Fly
Chocolate Dreamer
Air N' Sea
White Spar
He came to us August 15, 2005, with a badly shattered seismoid. It was a life-threatening injury, but he showed the same toughness he had shown on the track and survived. Sadly, he has passed away.
She was one of the oldest horses at the facility, but you wouldn’t have known it by looking at this elegant bay mare who started 93 times and retired sound. A natural winner. Sadly, she has passed away. 

He did love to fly on the racetrack! Started 99 times ran for 8 years and retired sound. He started his career in Hollywood Park, but after 5 races in CA, he moved to AZ.​ Unfortunately, he had to say goodbye too soon. 
He was a successful racehorse in California who injured a back leg. He was given a year off, but he always remembered being hurt and didn't want to be a racehorse any more. He has been adopted and is in training as a hunter/jumper.
He arrived 6-1-12​ and was an extremely tall and leggy chestnut gelding who was born and raised in Arizona. He started 34 times in his career and accumulated impressive earnings of $239,086 with all of his money being earned in Arizona. Even though he was supposed to move to his new home Christmas of 2013, he became ill and went over the rainbow bridge on 1/2/2014.
He is a well-traveled bay gelding who was born in New York on April 15, 2004, but started his career in sunny California at gorgeous Santa Anita Race Track. He now went back and lives in a wonderful home in California.
Beware the Wolf
He raced his entire career in sunny California and is the son of California's top sire, Unusual Heat. A bowed tendon ended his career. He loved attention but unfortunately he was taken from us suddenly and unexpected! Brushburn, you will be dearly missed!
This well-bred daughter of In Excess never raced. She had some success as a broodmare and now at age 16 was a permanent resident. Unfortunately, we had to let her go right before Christmas 2014. Her leg injuries were getting worse and the pain was unbearable for her. 
Russian Rampage
Steady Demand
He was another of the smaller horses with a huge heart. He was very fortunate to have a trainer with a good eye and an equally big heart. Although Steady Demand did really well at the farm, he became another victim of Colic and left us way to soon.
Hasty Texan
He was another of the smaller horses with a huge heart. He was very fortunate to have a trainer with a good eye and an equally big heart. 
Soaring in Excess
He was a big bay gelding whose career was cut short due to a chip in an ankle and a surgery that went wrong. He only had 9 starts in NM, the state of his birth. He won the first two races of his career and ran third 4 times. 
Thunder Fest
He had big shoes to fill and couldn’t quite do it. His sire, Festin, was a millionaire, having run second in the Santa Anita Derby and competing in the Breeder’s Cup Classic. Thunderfest had a hard time eating due to problems with his teeth. Even though he still had the spirit to the end we had to make a decision and it was best for him to go over the rainbow bridge. Thunderfest, you will be dearly missed! 
Tie Rod
This handsome multiple stakes winning bay son of Old Topper joined us on August 14, 2015 and left us way too soon 1 year later due to complication. In his seven year career, he started 42 times, winning 12 races, running second 7 times and finishing third 6 times. He amassed earnings of $330,020. He started his career at Canterbury Park in Minnesota and ran his last race at Prairie Meadows in Iowa. He was well-traveled having also run at Arapahoe Park in Colorado, Fairplex Park in California, Turf Paradise in Arizona, Gulfstream Park in Florida, Remington Park in Oklahoma, and Sunland Park in New Mexico. He exudes confidence and dignity and was a welcome addition to our facility and he will be dearly missed! RIP Tie Rod, enjoy running wild over the rainbow bridge!
He was a real champion with 13 blacktype finishes! He was born in New Mexico on March 1, 1997, and didn’t leave his home state until he retired with us in April of 2006. ​Unfortunately, in 2014 he was diagnosed with a neurological disorder and he was on medication ever since then. We made his life as comfortable as possible but in September 2016 we hd to say good bye to him. Now he can run wild and free again across the rainbow bridge.
Wind Water
He was one of our biggest money earners, having winnings of $792,619. Fittingly enough, he lived with Gulchrunssweet who was our biggest money earner with winnings of over $840,000. ​Wind Water cut his knee around the holidays but was healing up nicely. Unfortunately the angels decided to take him unexpectedly over the rainbow bridge in January 2017. We were all in shock because we never saw that coming. He was so full of life. Wind Water, we miss you buddy!
He was one of our oldest citizens. He was foaled in California on April 28, 1988, making him 26 years old when he arrived at the farm on October 3, 2014. He had a short racing career having only 9 starts, all of them in his home state. He last saw action at Bay Meadows on January 22, 1992, when he ran third. We were hoping he would make it to his 30th birthday but unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. We lost him in May 2017. We miss you old man!
Oh Gracie
He was a big chestnut with a wide blaze down his face, and he was an attention getter. He was born in CA on February 2, 1995, but you would never guess his age. He came to us on January 7, 2005 and left us January 3, 2018. We will miss you old friend! Until we meet again...
