Winning Key Farm announced Wednesday (June 16) a shift in direction of their breeding and racing operations.

Early in 2021, the harness racing world lost one of its most prominent supporters and enthusiasts when longtime owner and breeder Bob Key passed away at the age of 87. Following his passing, his wife, Patty Key, had many decisions to make regarding the prospects for the future of their operation. Having always shared his passion for raising horses, Mrs. Key has made the decision for Winning Key to move forward into the commercial side of the Standardbred business.

For the past several decades, Winning Key has bred and raised its stock to primarily race for the farm itself. While they have raised and raced many successful horses throughout the years, Winning Key has opted to concentrate on the production of their top broodmares. The farm has commenced a large dispersal of mares within the past couple months, with the aim to reduce their broodmare band from over 100 to about 30 top quality mares.

Starting this year, Winning Key Farm will begin offering all of its yearlings for sale. Diamond Creek Farm has agreed to consign several of their best yearlings for the Lexington, Ohio Select and Standardbred Horse sales, as well as for private sale.
