Williams Creek

 Williams Creek, aka Willy, is a chestnut colt born in 2016 out of the Indiana stallion Skylord and the mare Simone (Albert the Great).  Willy is a registered Thoroughbred who dreams of racing in a couple of years, especially at Indiana Grand.  His owners live in the Town of Williams Creek, and named him in honor of the Town.  Willy goes to "private school" at Margaux Farm in Midway, KY.  Watch this space for updates and photos as he prepares for his career in racing.  Update January 6, 2018.  Williams Creek is now a two year-old colt.  He has started his training at Margaux Farm and is best described by his Irish trainer Dermot Littlefield as a "clever boy".  He has a long shaggy coat to keep him warm in the winter, and enjoys being turned out daily with another young horse. Update March 16, 2018.  Williams Creek is jogging a mile to a mile and a quarter and galloping six furlongs to a mile daily. He is handling everything well and starting to trim up. His body condition and feet are good, and he is schooling in the gate regularly.  This is great progress for a 2 y/o in training, let's see if we can't get him to the races this season! Update April 2019. Williams Creek spent the winter at LaCroix Farm in LaGrange KY. He moved to Churchill Downs on April 1. He is training with Buff Bradley, a highly accomplished horseman and trainer. We look forward to seeing him race at Indiana Grand this summer.
