A Neat Profile of Graham Motion's Operation

October 24, 2011 · By Terry Finley · Share

We put a few horses with Graham Motion last year and think very highly of him and his team. One thing’s for sure, we’re looking forward to continuing a successful relationship with the English native in the years to come.

He runs a first-rate operation out at Fair Hill in Elkton, Md., and the slower-paced style of training away from the racetrack can be very beneficial to a good number of horses.
Graham won the Kentucky Derby this year with Animal Kingdom and has been successful in getting horses to the Breeders' Cup World Championships this year, including Spinster Stakes (gr. I) winner Aruna, who will run either in the Ladies' Classic (gr. I) or the Filly & Mare Turf (gr. IT). We're sending our Shirocco (GER) colt and the Footstepsinthesand (GB) filly to him next spring.

Partners: Be sure to check out MYWPT for information on a Partner only conference call tomorrow. He’ll discuss the new yearlings and also share some Breeders’ Cup memories with us.

Here, Pia Catton of the Wall Street Journal does a great job profiling Graham’s operation:

Fairhill is magic - Graham is a great guy, combine him with the 1000s of acres, the lack of mayhem, and what Bruce has to offer you really can't beat it. There was a picture of Makybe Dive on the morning of her 3rd Melbourne Cup - she was muddy in a field looking like any $1000 nag. Later that day she is as regal as ever in the winner circle of Australia's biggest race. Horses thrive in the lime light when they can rest in the countryside.
It is great to be a part of West Point and having Graham Motion train one of the horses that you have an interest in. Can't get any better than this. Albert Pumila with Craig Accardo
