WinStar Farm announced today that trainer Elliott Walden will become the private trainer for the farm. Prior to the announcement, the public-stable trainer had conditioned about 90% of WinStar's horses.
Two-time Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) winner Tiznow, who will stand his first season at stud next year, has had his stud fee set at $30,000 live foal, payable Sept. 1.
Tiznow, whose victory in the 2001 Breeders' Cup Classic (gr. I) for the second consecutive year placed him solidly in the running for a another Horse of the Year title, was shown to the public Monday, Nov. 26, at Bill Casner and Kenny Troutt's WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky.
He didn't make the list, but Nelson Bunker Hunt and his return to Thoroughbred racing was profiled in Forbes magazine's annual coverage of America's 400 wealthiest people.
Rich Decker has resigned his position as president of WinStar Farm, the Versailles, Ky., operation owned by telecommunications executives Kenny Troutt and Bill Casner, who purchased the former Prestonwood Farm from Jack, Art, and the recently deceased J.R. Preston in January 2000. Decker was manager of Prestonwood since 1988.
Kenny Troutt and Bill Casner have purchased 314 acres next to their WinStar Farm near Versailles, Ky. The addition brings the farm's total land to about 964 contiguous acres.
