Tom and Nancy Clark, Farm Owners
Tom was raised on a farm and has been around Thoroughbreds his entire life. He purchased his first racehorse in 1984 and has been actively involved in the industry ever since. Nancy earned her degree in Animal Science at the University of California at Davis. After graduating, she managed an Appaloosa and Thoroughbred breeding farm in the 1980's, which is now Victory Rose Thoroughbreds.
Since purchasing the farm in April of 2000, the Clarks have transformed Rancho San Miguel into one of the leading stallion stations in California and the nation, investing in new pastures, barns, equipment, and housing for employees. These additions have allowed them to hire the most highly trained and skilled horsemen. As knowledgeable horse people and clients themselves, Tom and Nancy understand the importance of providing the best possible care.
