After 39 years of service to the farm, Lane's End Farm stallion manager Billy Sellers will retire in September.

Indy, champion and successful sires like Kingmambo, Smart Strike, Dixieland Band, Gulch, Lemon Drop Kid , Mineshaft , and City Zip, in addition to current top stallions Quality Road , Candy Ride , Union Rags , and Twirling Candy .

Daily Life series on Billy Sellers

Sellers has been a valued member of the Lane's End Farm team since 1982 when he was hired in a foreman capacity to work with the farm's first yearling crop and with mares and foals. He became stallion manager at the beginning of the development of the Lane's End stallion division in 1985. In this position, Sellers established the foundation of best practices that would ensure the health and safety of the stallions and result in smooth management of the breeding shed.  

"Bill Sellers has contributed significantly to the success of Lane's End as a leading Thoroughbred breeding farm," said Lane's End Farm owner Will Farish. "Billy's exceptional diligence and hard work have been instrumental in building the Lane's End stallion division into a world-renowned operation known for the highest level of horse care and management. We take this opportunity to thank Billy for dedicating his career to Lane's End Farm. We will miss him greatly and wish him the very best in his retirement."
