“Home base” for Redhawk Racing will be Matt Hogan Stables at Diamond A Farm. 

Matt Hogan Stables is owned by Joe Engelhart, Matt Hogan and brothers Mark, Frank and Ben Taylor of the highly successful TaylorMade Farm. Diamond A Farm was developed by the prominent businessman Allen Paulson (founder of Gulfstream Aerospace) in 1982 as Brookside Farm. The 1,000-acre nursery in Versailles, KY (just outside of Lexington) became the breeding ground of over 100 Stakes Winners. Best known among the horses campaigned by the Paulson’s was Cigar, the two-time Horse of the Year (1995-96), who tied Citation’s modern-day record of 16 consecutive victories and who retired as racing’s all-time earner with more than $9.9 million.

Other champions raced by the Paulsons included Arazi (in partnership), North American and European champion 2-year-old of 1991; 1989 champion older horse Blushing John; 1992 champion 2-year-old filly Eliza; 1997 champion 3-year-old filly Ajina; 1998 champion older filly or mare Escena; 1986 champion turf female Estrapade; and 1987 champion male grass horse Theatrical. Brookside was renamed Diamond A Farm upon Mr. Paulson’s passing.

This glorious property is where the three fillies on the Redhawk Racing roster will begin their training before heading to the track for competition. Once the fillies racing careers begin, Matt Hogan Stables will serve as their home away from the track when they need a break from racing or time to recuperate from an injury. The farm will also be enjoyed by Redhawk Racing Members who are able to visit the farm or gather at the farm for a prerace Redhawk Racing brunch before the first race at Keeneland during its race meets in April and October.
