Trainers

Gary Gray has been in the thoroughbred/harness training business for most of his life. Gary grew up with horses and began successful standard breed training career at Louisville Downs. When that business sold out, Gary turned his attention to the thoroughbred action. He has been working with this breed for the last 15 years. Gary is hands on, doing nearly all the work with the horse himself from hot walking to grooming to setting feed to managing the horses' training schedule. In this way, Gary can train a horse at a much more reasonable rate (currently $40/day) than a more high profile trainer (many at twice Gary’s rate or higher). Given an opportunity with quality stock, I have no doubt he can train with the best. Gary currently trains his horses at Paramount Farms located off US 42, just past Goshen.

Paul McGee has advanced to the highest level of the sport. He has trained Graded Stakes winners Suave, Honor in War and Bet on Sunshine among others. Paul manages a large stable of horses (40-50) for some high profile clients. Many of these horses are high priced yearlings and 2 year-old purchases. He also loves to claim horses, as this was his beginnings into the horse racing industry. At such a large stable, the quality of horse must merit Paul’s more expensive daily rate (currently at $85/day).
