  • First Purchase for the 2024 Bourbon Lane Stable 2 YO Partnership!

    McMahon & Hill scored big on Day 1 of the Ocala Breeders' Sale (OBS) 2-year-old in training sale in Ocala, Florida - snagging a stellar NY-bred filly from Coastal Equine that we felt had one of the best works of the sale. She is by NY sire HONEST MISCHIEF, standing at Sequel Stallions, and is fully eligible for the NY Stallion Stakes series. Clocking an impressive 9 4/5, she is just a May foal and was the youngest to achieve this time in the sale. She still has room to improve and grow into her frame, and we think she is the real deal. She will get a month long vacation at WinStar Farm in Versailles, KY before heading to trainer Mark Hennig in New York. Big thank you to our loyal partners Maggie Seidman and the Hampsons for making big contributions allowing us to buy special horses like this. There is still room to join our 2024 partnership group, with a minimum investment of $10,000. Contact us today for more information and look out for this special filly on the New York racing circuit soon! Link to sale HIP NO. 243 HONEST MISCHIEF - FORGET IT (BAY F.)

  • 2024 Bourbon Lane Stable Stats - Through May

    We are almost halfway through the 2024 racing season, but for Bourbon Lane, the Northern Hemisphere Racing season has really just started. This year, we shipped ONLY three horses to Florida and rested several over the Winter. The result, we hope, will be an exciting Summer. It has been great to see Uno Mas Bourbon get started again! Using the statistics available at, we have had only 27 starts in the Northern Hemisphere in 2024, with 3 wins, BUT a surprisingly strong in the money percentage of 44%. Our total earnings after the first five months of the year are $288,493. Those stats compete very well with other stables with 20-40 starts in 2024. Meanwhile, in the Southern Hemisphere, we are just entering Winter and we have had a great 2024, with 41 Starts, 10 wins, 6 seconds, and 5 thirds, good for $170,360. GLOBALLY, for the first five months of the year we have 68 total starts, with 13 wins, and with a total win percentage of 19% and an in the money percentage of 48.5% and total earnings of $448,850.00. Thank you to the partners who have joined the 2024 two year old partnership after the Maryland sale. We bought the third horse in Maryland, a NY bred colt by Instagrand. We have 10% left in this three horse partnership. Total value is $300,000. The minimum is $10,000 to join. Contact us quickly if you are considering joining the 2024 Bourbon Lane Stable Two Year Old LLC.

  • Bourbon Lane Stable Retirement Fund, Inc. - Rye Munny

We closely monitor all of our former runners and work diligently to get them to a safe forever home. Please consider making a donation, your donations are vital to help us look after our former runners. This fund is a 501(c)(3), so your contributions will be tax deductible, but more important is that you will further our mission to take care of our past, present and future racehorses.

    We could not be more excited about Uno Mas Bourbon's dominant maiden-breaking victory for the 2022 Bourbon Lane Yearling Partnership, won on an off the turf, one turn mile maiden special at Churchill with a $120,000 purse! We felt pretty confident pre-race and we were a narrow favorite, possibly due to the Hernandez factor - our friend Derby winner Brian Hernandez was in the saddle! Brian broke Uno Mas well, kept a rail trip, split horses at the top of the stretch and “kicked away." The post-race comments were cautiously optimistic. “Never used the stick in the stretch. Just fanned it at him. He wanted to stop at the 1/16th pole but he kept on under his own. Just learning his job. Beat a bunch of grass horses. He was the only one who handled the slop.” We plan to keep him on the turf for his next start, targeting a big race at Kentucky Downs this fall if all continues to go well. Knowing that he can handle the slop gives us powerful options! Big thanks to Ian Wilkes and his team for a great training job, Brian Hernandez for an expert ride and congratulations to our partners! Uno Mas Bourbon was a $75,000 yearling purchase from Legacy Bloodstock at Keeneland September.
