Toby and Heather are proud parents of 2 very special boys Liam (2) & River (1) & have been together for 9 years, 4 of them being married, and a Team of 'Colt Starters' together for 7 years but with all of their experience around 40 years worth of talent.
They both bring a bit of their own style to the table which molds together in their process to produce a well balanced happy horse.
Now that she has been in Lexington she has picked up the jumping/eventing bug. She's always open to learning and improving.
I am proud to be known as one of the most efficient colt starters in the world today. My record and work ethic everyday proves that. As I usually start around 100 horses a year in North and South America. I'm always looking for one more special client!
In over 30 years Toby can legitimately say he has started over 3,000 horses and has never had a dissatisfied client. "Toby has done a great job starting all our Yearlings including Justify, 2018 Triple Crown Winner. He is a horseman's horseman, and has a real connection with the horse." Elliot Walden, CEO of Winstar Farm.
He has had the opportunity to start multiple stake winners recently including but not limited to: Yoshida - G1 Winner Turf & Dirt; Good Samaritan - G1 Turf Winner; Quip - '18 Tampa Bay Derby Winner; Noble Indy - '18 Louisiana Derby Winner; National Flag- G3 Winner; Improbable - G1 Winner & Eclipse Award Older Male; Bulletin - Breeders Cup Juvenile Turf Sprint Winner; Sanenus (CHI) - G1 Winner @ 2 (CHI) G2 Winner USA, Preparante (CHI) Chilean Derby Winner; and Justify - The 13th Triple Crown Winner.
"It's been such an honor and a privilege to work with some of the nicest horses the world has ever seen. I believe the greatest act of kindness I can do for a horse is to give him or her the best education possible, that way they can have a Great Life! Because in the end they're still a horse." ~ TJR
