Brent and Cherry Taylor are proud to carry on the winning tradition that is so ingrained in the history of Trelawney Stud. Since taking over the farm in the early 1990s they have bred, raised or sold 27 individual Group One winners that have won 40 times at elite level in five different countires. That averages out to be over one Group One winner a year. These statistics don't come about by chance, the hard work and dedication that goes into producing quality racehorses is at the forefront of every decision made at Trelawney and the racetrack results are the farm's best advertisement.
