About Phoebe Standardbreds
Breeding of race horses, predominantly trotters has become a passion. I have always followed the races but it wasn't until 2002 that our first Broodmare was purchased, after seeing her advertised in the Harness Weekly and knowing she traced back to the old breed my father and grand father had "played around" with. Ashley Sunset was her name and although we have now gone on to produce a dual Group 1 winner and many other winners, the thrill of our first win as a breeder with her first foal was enough to get me hooked, the fact it was at our local Cheviot meeting meant for a great day we will never forget!!
Other in foal purchases followed, but always on a budget and following a lot of in depth study.
Originally we were breeding for the sales but our focus changed 4 years ago when we were offered the opportunity to stand a couple of stallions in Imperial Count and Royal Aspirations. They were then joined by Locharburn 2 years years ago.
We now support these stallions with our own mares with the aim to sell the progeny as weanlings/yearlings.
