Located in the beautiful Diamond Valley area of Hemet, California, Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms is set on a picturesque hill near Lake Hemet, one of California’s largest lakes.
The 95-acres of land sits on the site of a previous Thoroughbred breeding farm. Today, Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms (BTF) is a thriving, ever-expanding, full-service Thoroughbred horse farm.
Long-time Thoroughbred owners, who previously owned Delta Farms in Rancho Santa Fe, California, Paul and Aileen Brazeau purchased the Ranch in March, 2012.
Though previously neglected and run down, with hard work and lots of TLC, today Brazeau Thoroughbred Farms has been transformed into a beautiful and vital property. Everything on the original farm has been replaced or rebuilt, always always considering the comfort and safety of the horses.
With a focus always on training, the farm has a seven-eights-of-a-mile track (with an uphill gallop and starting gates), over-sized training stalls, a Eurosizer, two round pens and a bull pen, multitudes of small lay-up pens, and many turnouts. The large pastures - designed for broodmares and young horses - are now beautiful green fields.
The BTF training barn today has 35 horses under tack; with the excellent surface of their new track, all of the BTF horses are race-ready conditioned right on the premises. And, with the addition of a turf gallop and an aqua tread under development, the training and exercising programs will match any in the nation.
With vast alfalfa fields, combined with ample water from the Brazeau Thoroughbred Farm's high-yielding wells, BTF annually grows and cuts enough alfalfa to satisfy the needs of the farm’s horses. This self-sufficiency provides plentiful home-grown quality hay at BTF all year long. Our farm features a 7-furlong racetrack, slanted for uphill gallop which helps build lung capacity and develops a better athlete. We are updating our facilities and have 40 new stalls in four different barns including a stallion barn and foaling barn.
Our philosophy incorporates a complete program where our foals are born, raised, trained and go on to become winning race horses. All of our mares are bred for the 2013 season. The ranch has 27 foals currently.
Unlike huge commercial enterprises, we specialize in foaling out mares – our facility treats all of our client's horses like our own.
