WINTER QUARTER FARM purchased and established in 1948, is a 276 acre Thoroughbred operation moving into the 4th generation of same family management.
The seed enterprise was old Duntreath Farm owned by Mrs. Silas B. Mason on land now occupied by Gardenside subdivision. One of the first broodmares moved here by grandmother Mason was MAID OF DUNTREATH, the grandam of the great champion KELSO.
Over the years Winter Quarter, now owned by Don M. Robinson and managed by son Ferran, has transitioned from tobacco and cattle production to an exclusively equine operation –– breeding and raising foals, breaking and training yearlings. In addition Winter Quarter consigns its produce to the Kentucky sales.
In recent years the farm has raised Grade I winners GOLDEN PHEASANT, STAR OF COZZENE, MATTY G, VICAR, BALANCE, and OVERARCHING in our name or on behalf of an international clientele. This land has allowed us to achieve the goal of raising some of the best racehorses in the world.
Don Robinson, owner and manager of Winter Quarter Farm, also bred and foaled 2010 “Eclipse Horse of the Year” Winner Zenyatta on his Fayette County horse farm. Click here to read the Lexington Herald-Leader’s article about Zenyatta’s win.
