Edited press release:
Barbara Banke’s Stonestreet operation has purchased a 220-acre property near Ocala, Florida that was previously owned by Vinery. The facility will officially become Stonestreet Training and Rehabilitation Center.
“Vinery with its team of skilled and seasoned horse professionals created a world class training and rehabilitation facility,” says Banke. “We are pleased to incorporate it into our breeding and training operation.”
Stonestreet homebreds Grade I winner Dreaming of Julia and Champion My Miss Aurelia are both recent graduates of the program.
Dr. Tom Simon announced that he would sell Vinery’s US operations on August 28, 2012. The Florida training center is the only property purchased by Stonestreet.
Stonestreet is comprised of approximately 90 broodmares and 18 stallion interests, producing 70 foals each year. Stonestreet is a perennial name found on leading breeder lists throughout North America.
