Lane’s End Farm’s longtime stallion manager Bill Sellers will retire this September after 39 years of service on the farm. Bill has led the management and care of influential Lane’s End stallions, including the legendary AP Indy, the winning sires Kingmambo, Smart Strike, Dixieland Band, Gulch, Lemon Drop Kid, Mineshaft and City Zip, as well as the current top stallions Quality Road, Candy Ride (ARG), Union Rags and Twirling Candy.
Bill has been a valued member of the Lane’s End Farm team since 1982 when he was hired as a foreman to work with the farm’s first yearling crop, as well as mares and foals. He became Stallion Manager when the Lane’s End Stallion Division began developing in 1985. In this position, Bill laid the foundation for best practices that would ensure the health and safety of stallions and result in the smooth management of the stud farm.
Will Farish, owner of Lane’s End Farm, said, “Bill Sellers has been instrumental in making Lane’s End a premier thoroughbred farm. Billy’s exceptional care and hard work have helped make the Lane’s End Stallion Division a world famous operation known for the highest levels 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 very much and wish him all the best for his retirement. “
