Rancho San Miguel To Host Open House & Stallion Show On January 20

San Miguel, California—Featuring an informational program that has been crafted for current and prospective Thoroughbred owners and breeders, the venerable California farm Rancho San Miguel will host its 2024 Open House & Stallion Show from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 20. The free event will be held at the farm’s 250-acre site in San Luis Obispo County, located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Anchoring this year’s robust agenda are horse husbandry seminars, networking opportunities and a parade of the farm’s nine-horse stallion roster. In addition to a catered lunch, attendees can participate in fun giveaways and a stallion season raffle.

Among the scheduled activities are a discussion on equine reproduction by Stacy Potter, DVM, of S&S Equine Veterinary Services and a session on equine nutrition by Purina feed representative Jordan Baumgartner.

Several horses representing Rancho San Miguel’s large consignment to the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association’s 2024 Winter Mixed Sale will be on display during the event, offering attendees an advance viewing of the mares, yearlings and horses of racing age who are entered in the January 30 public auction in Pomona, California.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the farm’s diverse stallion roster for 2024, which includes the promising young sires Danzing Candy and Editorial as well as respected veterans Northern Causeway, Richard’s Kid, Sir Prancealot (Ire), Surf Cat and Tom’s Tribute. California’s leading stallion by number of mares bred in 2023, Mo Forza, will be available for inspection, as will the farm’s newest addition to its stallion ranks: undefeated Bolden, who initiates his stallion career this year.

“We are always proud to open our doors to members of the racing and breeding community, and to invite mare owners to see our stallions up close in this casual format,” said Rancho San Miguel owner Tom Clark. “This year, we are adding some educational sessions and expert speakers to our line-up, which I believe will offer a well-rounded experience for attendees.”
