Saracen Horse Feeds’ range of specialist thoroughbred racing feeds has been developed through an exclusive partnership with Hallway Feeds, based in Lexington, Kentucky, since April 2000. Hallway Feeds is the Official Feed Supplier to the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, and their remarkable record of success for well over 30 years means that Hallway have fuelled 15 Kentucky Derby winners in the last 25 runnings of the race, numerous Breeders’ Cup Champions, copious Eclipse Award winners and the two recent Triple Crown heroes, American Pharoah and Justify.
Both Saracen Horse Feeds and Hallway Feeds are Brand Partners with Kentucky Equine Research, World Leaders in Equine Research and Nutrition with research centres in Lexington, Kentucky and Ocala, Florida. Kentucky Equine Research is the most prolific independent equine researcher in the world, entirely committed to the advancement of athletic performance through nutrition. Kentucky Equine Research provides us both with a comprehensive consultation programme tailored to fit our individual needs, and the scientific knowledge, back-up and credibility necessary for us to produce competitive, cutting-edge feeds at our own feed mill for European trainers.
Together, we are dedicated to thoroughbred racing, and we can offer highly technical expertise and ground-breaking science and technology alongside the quality ingredients and novel sources of nutrients found in our specialist racing feeds.
We are very lucky to work with trainers who have achieved domestic and international success at the highest level over the last 25 years, and our services can be tailored, as required, to suit the needs of your yard.
Here are some of the services we make available as part of your support network -
