Millennium Farms To Evolve Operations To Focus on Racing

Millennium Farms’ owner Ro Parra, with over 26 years in various segments of the industry, is returning to a focus on racing that will include a small, select broodmare band. This will result in the halting of boarding services at Millennium Farms before the September Sale at Keeneland.

“While we have enjoyed the challenge of a full-service operation – including standing stallions a few years back – my real passion has been and will always be racing,” said Parra. “That’s where I started in the game back in 1996. With a small group of quality mares and racing stock, hopefully we can return to having a top racing stable that can compete at the highest levels, as we have in the past. We hope to make this transition over the next 12 to 24 months.”

Millennium Farms’ partnership in Buckland Sales with Zach Madden will continue as well.

“Zach has done a great job in a highly competitive marketplace to build a successful and respected sales agency,” continued Parra. “Our presence for our clients at Keeneland and Fasig-Tipton this fall with a robust consignment is a testament to Zach and the bright future for Buckland Sales.

“Jay Ted Neel, our general manager, will oversee the transition over the next six months and will be relocating to Oklahoma with his family at the end of the year,” Parra continued. “He will be retained as a consultant after he relocates.”

Millennium Farms will continue to operate, but not as a boarding facility. Bobby Miller, another industry veteran, will stay involved supervising the farm following the transition.
