In 1989, Graham Beck purchased Gainesway from industry leader John R. Gaines. Mr. Beck had previously enjoyed great success breeding and buying Thoroughbreds, and was a perennial leading owner/buyer in his native South Africa. Mr. Beck and his son Antony then dedicated themselves to carrying on Gainesway’s reputation as a major force in the international breeding and racing industry. Building on a tradition of excellence takes years of hard work and commitment, and the Becks made sure the foundation was solid, adding top stallions, broodmares, clientele, and key employees to the Gainesway team.
