We have new photos of “Detroit Andy” at home on his breeder’s farm in Lexington, KY. He is all woolly and muddy and just lovin’ life. He has been away from racing for a few months and he is ready to begin training as a sport horse. We are hoping to find him a match with an event rider looking for a horse to take up through the divisions. “Detroit Andy” only raced 15 times and he won only once. His breeder has younger horses, with more potential for winning, ready to begin training so “Detroit Andy” has retired from racing to keep the costs down. The snow is melting and the phones are getting hot so don’t delay in calling about this fine horse.
Are you wondering why the Web site and OTTB Success Stories have not been kept current? In case you did not hear . . . we got snow in Atlanta and about eight inches at the farm. See video our our Thoroughbreds rolling in the snow. We were stuck at the farm for a week with no help except for Lucky . . . Read More . . .

I know you Washington, D.C., Virginia and Maryland people who got 36 inches are laughing but 3.6 inches of snow is a record here at Bits & Bytes Farm. Fortunately, we are in the deep south and within hours it was already melting away. Enjoy the photos!
We are getting out the Christmas decorations at Bits & Bytes Farm and mother nature added a few touches of her own – snow!
“Maverick” is a 2002, 16 hand, bay Thoroughbred gelding for sale.
Bits & Bytes Farm toured Ashford Stud and got up close and personal with former Kentucky Derby winners.
We feel closer to these race-horses, because at any time, if any of the horses begin not to perform so well, we could easily be placing them or easing them into farm and regular horse life away from the track! After all, this is just about the life-style many of our boys were used to before we got them. Many of the horses we have placed, raced at Keeneland.
We were up early in order to head over to, arguably, one of the most beautiful racetracks ever, Keeneland. Here we were able to watch the horses do their early morning training at the main track and, even better, we were able to touch several of these beautiful race-horses in their stalls and talk to some of their grooms.
