Every year, Brittany Farms ranks at or near the top in average earnings for the racehorses it breeds and sells, and in 2018, Brittany ranked #1 among all major breeders with more than $50,000 in average earnings per starter.
The farm means “money” to those who buy its yearlings, as many of those purchases go on to become outstanding racehorses, and more importantly, racehorses that turn a significant profit for their owners.
Last year the 228 Brittany-bred horses that raced earned $11,542,459, for average earnings per starter of $50,625.

That Brittany brigade was led by multiple World Champion and “3-Year-Old Trotting Colt of the Year” Six Pack 3,1:49.1, who was the richest all-age trotter of the past season and has now amassed $1,358,290 in career earnings.
He was bred, raised and sold as a yearling by Brittany Farms, as was last year’s $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks heroine Manchego, $500,000 Hempt Memorial winner Springsteen, $450,000 (div.) Tattersalls Pace winner American History, $422,000 Peter Haughton Memorial winner Don’t Let’em, and in regional action, $220,000 Indiana Sire Stakes Super Final winner Egomania.
You can see the big six-figure purses in front of those major stakes races that were won by Brittany-breds. Breeding horses that can win those events is the goal from the time the farm plans its matings to when it sells its yearlings.
If you’re not already a customer of the farm, we hope you’ll consider becoming one this year. That Brittany Farms yearling you buy often means serious money.
