Troutt assumes sole ownership of WinStar

KENNY TROUTT has become the sole owner of major Kentucky breeding operation WinStar Farm after a partnership with former co-owner Bill Casner was dissolved.

WinStar campaigns this season's Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes winners Super Saver and Drosselmeyer, and among the high-profile stallions on its roster are Distorted Humor, Speightstown and Tiznow.

Casner, who will become the farm's largest client, said: "The dissolution of my partnership with Kenny is a business strategy that is mutually beneficial at this point in our lives.

"The relationship that Kenny and I have remains unchanged, and we are still the closest of friends. Susan and I will continue to keep our mares at WinStar, employ the training division for our young horses and participate in future partnerships with Kenny.

"The evolution of WinStar over the last ten years and the relationship that we have had with the entire WinStar team has been one of the most gratifying experiences that Susan and I have ever experienced.

"We will continue to be heavily involved in racing, breeding and all efforts to move our industry forward."

WinStar Farm is comprised of approximately 1400 acres in Pisgah Pike, Versailles, including the original 450-acre tract of land, formerly known as Silver Pond Farm.
