Prairie Sky Thoroughbred
Associations: jockey Club, ITHA, ArLington and Hawthorn racecourse
We are proud members of the The Jockey Club, Arlington and Hawthorne Racecourses, and ITHA - Illinois Thoroughbred Horsemen's Association. We are unique in applying Natural Horsemanship to horse racing.
Although all of our our horses come home to relax on the farm, we support the retaining and aftercare of racehorses through the Jockey Club’s Thoroughbred Incentive Program and the Thoroughbred Alliance Program. We also support the Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-Racehorses (CANTER).
Our family has raced Illinois Thoroughbreds at Arlington and Hawthorn beginning in the early 70's as partners with Washington Stables. Prada Storm is currently racing in her second year at Arlington Racecourse. Her brothers, Prado Sky and Prado Umbra, will join her for their first races next season. The Arlington International Racecourse season runs from May 4th to September 22, 2019. The Hawthorn season runs from October 5th to December 29th, 2019.
Prada is a daughter of the legendary Fort Prado and That's a Story. Fort Prado is our sire and sire of 48 winners with progeny earnings in excess of $2.7 million. He was Illinois Horse of the Year, and raced at Keenland and Churchhill Downs: the Grade 3 John B. Connally Breeders’ Cup and Fair Grounds Breeders’ Cup and 11 additional stakes including four editions of the Black Tie Affair Handicap at Arlington Park. Fort Prado's earnings were $4,254,076.
