Located on 200 acres at the north end
of the Chesapeake Bay, there is an extra-ordinary training center like
no other in the United States of America. There is no harsh dirt track,
instead there is a 7 furlong all-weather TAPETA™
track which is not only THE
SAFEST IN THE USA, but is also as good in wet
weather as it is in dry or normal conditions. The farm is located
mid-way between New York and Washington, D.C. within easy vanning to 11
major race tracks. Designed by leading trainer Michael Dickinson, it combines the latest, most
innovative technology in equine care with fundamental "good
sense" horse husbandry.
The farm was designed with focus on
the equine, with countless amenities, but perhaps the grandest of the
all is the Tapeta™ (Latin for "carpet") training surface. The track is a seven-furlong, all weather, one-bend marvel -
dynamically impervious to water - which took more
than four years to design and perfect.
