Hibiscus Stables was founded in 2003 by three long-time friends who share a passion for Thoroughbred racing, winning, and excellence. Our goal is to build on our success and continue to acquire quality Thoroughbreds capable of competing at the highest levels of racing and running on major circuits. Our commitment is unwavering. Although we race primarily in New York, because we believe that to have the day-in and day-out best racing and highest purses in the country, we've also expanded into California and other parts of the country as well.
Founded on a pure passion for the sport, Hibiscus Stables has since become a partnership organization with a strong reputation for integrity, unprecedented customer service, and one of the most committed teams in the industry. Hibiscus partnerships are professionally managed, beginning with the selection of the athletes and the creation of each partnership group. From there, Hibiscus employs a tailored strategy for training and managing each horse’s career to leverage its strengths and give it every chance to succeed.
Partnerships provide a smart, cost effective way to realize the dream of Thoroughbred racehorse ownership. Collectively, individuals are empowered to own part of promising racehorses and can retain the services of industry leading trainers and jockeys that might otherwise be out of reach individually. Partnerships offer an opportunity to share in the rewards that come with ownership at a fraction of the cost. Hibiscus offers all this and more: a truly unique experience, a refreshing approach and a team that is driven to succeed.
Hibiscus Stables has partnered with legendary horseman Greg Gilchrist as its primary bloodstock advisor. Greg’s primary role is to attend the annual sales and hand-select the acquisitions that will then be added to the roster. As a trainer, and more recently as a bloodstock adviser, Greg has won more than 140 stakes races and recently led the purchase as a 2-year-old in training of multiple G1 winner and Eclipse Award finalist Turbulent Descent. Each year Hibiscus Stables returns to the sales with an aggressive strategy to acquire promising athletes at the right price point to maximize the investments of the partners.
