Gayle Woods was born in Worcestershire, England in1959 during a major storm, hence the name Gayle. A farmer's daughter Gayle (Spiers) Woods was raised in Worcestershire where she began a way of life with horses.
Gayle's entrance into the Thoroughbred racing world began in 1986 when she came to Florida to be employed by Tony and Johanne Everard's Another Episode Farm. Here she was able to gain a solid foundation breaking and training and preparing young racehorses for the racetack and sales. During this time, she was fortunate to have worked with such horses asFOURSTARDAVE, FOURSTARALLSTAR, IRISH ACTRESS and IRISH LINNETT to name a few.
Gail Woods Sales became very successful and have ranked among the leading consignors of two-year-olds. At the 2000 Fasig-Tipton Calder sale, HARMONY LODGE, a filly by Hennessy, out Grade 3 stakes winner Win Crafty Lady, set a record for the highest price ever paid for a filly at public auction, and was purchased by Eugene Melnyk. “Selling Harmony Lodge for $1.65 million was probably the most significant highlight of our career,” said Gayle. Since being on her own Gayle has produced graded stakes winners Subtle Aly, Deputy Glitters, Slews Tizzy, Game On Dude, Kiss The Kid, and Excaper who was second in the Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf G1 in only his third start.
Our facility is located at Nelson Jones Farm in the heart of Ocala's training mecca.
