Update - late Dec.,
Right at the end of the year we
got a major update -- FINDING MORE (2010 filly by Trickey
Trevor out of Greenmountain Girl by Green Dancer) won the
Letellier Memorial S. at the Fair Grounds in
Finding More, which Ky. bloodstock agent Dan Kenney purchased
from our consignment for $4,500 in the WTBOA 2011 sale, has
been a filly to watch since her first start at Presque Isle
Downs. She has
since won at Woodbine -- breaking her maiden, won at
Churchill Downs -- in an entry level allowance, and now has
won her first stakes race at the Fair Grounds.
We wish all the best to her connections, and we can't
wait to see what comes next!
The 2012 racing year was a good
one, with stakes performances by JEBRICA, SWEET NELLIE
BROWN, OIL COUNTRY, PRIVATE FORTUNE, and now FINDING MORE.
Private Fortune races for Blue
Ribbon Racing #2, and we are looking forward to her return
to the races in 2013, along with Eagle Harbor (racing for
Blue Ribbon Racing #7), and the newly turning two-year-olds
Uptownfreddybrown (Nationhood - Brown), and See My Tail
Lites (Matty G - Lite Nite), which will race for Blue Ribbon
Racing #8 and #9 respectively.
If you are ever interested in a sharing the fun of
racing, contact us.
We have a great time.
We are enjoying watching our 2012
youngsters as they grow, and we can't wait for the new crop
of 2013 foals which will start arriving just around the
expect foals by POSSE, FREUD, HARBOR THE GOLD, STEVIE
WONDERBOY, NATIONHOOD, BIRDSTONE, COAST GUARD, LIBERTY GOLD,
AND MATTY G.
NATIONHOODS are off to the races in 2013!
The September 4th WTBOA Summer and Mixed Sale is next up
on our agenda.
You can see pictures of our Summer Yearling consignment on
of 2011" page.
Our consignment features the first crop of
think you will agree that his foals look outstanding!
In addition, we have a colt by PETIONVILLE out of
2011's Washington Broodmare of the Year, PEACEFUL WINGS.
We hope to be able to show you these outstanding
yearlings in the flesh from September 1st on at the sales
grounds. If you
would like to see them before then on the farm, contact us.
With the fantastic 2011 racing year in which we were
Washington's LEADING BREEDER to spur us on, the 2012 year is
rapidly becoming equally as memorable, with stakes
performance so far by JEBRICA, SWEET NELLIE BROWN, OIL
COUNTRY, and PRIVATE FORTUNE (Private Fortune races for Blue
Ribbon Racing #2).
Impressive maiden wins were scored by Amazing Legacy,
De La Luna (which races for Blue Ribbon Racing #6), and
Muchas Coronas (which races for Blue Ribbon Farm).
We have a great
group of foals of 2012 -- including an April 12th HARD SPUN
colt out of our newest mare, stakes winner SWEET FOURTY.
The breeding season went well for us -- all four
mares we sent to out of state sires are in foal -- to FREUD,
POSSE, BIRDSTONE, and STEVIE WONDERBOY.

Blue Ribbon Farm is a 70 Acre Thoroughbred breeding farm located near Buckley, Washington, in the shadow of Mt. Rainier.
Owned by Debbie and Rick Pabst since 1973, the farm is home to approximately 15 broodmares and their offspring, which are sold as yearlings at the Washington Thoroughbred Breeders and Owners Association (WTBOA) public auctions.
We take pride in breeding and raising outstanding equine athletes in our spacious pastures. Outside mares are welcomed to foal here and be bred back to local stallions or inseminated (for those breeds for which it is allowed) using cooled, shipped semen. We consistently achieve conception rates in the 90th percentile. Dr. Jeff Stenslie is our current attending veterinarian and provides horses at Blue Ribbon Farm with top quality veterinary care.
We have always been active in bringing new stallions into Washington, and we are now standing NATIONHOOD. We own shares in many Washington stallions, so contact us if you need a season. Blue Ribbon Racing will be syndicating two new horses. We are also available to help you find nurse mares and manage orphan foals.
