Hudon, Owner Of Sierra Farm, Dies At Age 80

Edmond “Ed” Hudon, who owned Sierra Farm in Lexington, Ky., with his wife Sharon, died early Thursday morning after a short illness, Thoroughbred Daily News reports. He was 80.

Hudon’s death came less than a day after Sierra Farm sold the most expensive yearling in its history. On Wednesday, Larry Best’s OXO Equine secured a Sierra-bred American Pharoah colt for $1.4 million to lead the day’s trade at the Keeneland September Yearling Sale. The colt is out of the Grade 2-winning Pulpit mare Bsharpsonata, who Sierra Farm bought with the American Pharoah colt in-utero for $375,000 at the 2016 Keeneland November Breeding Stock Sale.

Initially basing his trade in aluminum, Hudon had been involved with Thoroughbreds for more than four decades. He and Sharon bought the former Chance Farm in northern Lexington in 2006 and gave it its current moniker.

Hudon earned his first graded stakes winner as an owner when homebred Nessy won the Grade 3 San Juan Capistrano Stakes at Santa Anita. Sierra Farm also bred the multiple Grade 3-placed stakes winner Amy’s Challenge.
