New Hampshire’s Runnymede Farm, Former Home Of Dancer’s Image, To Be Listed For Sale

Runnymede Farm in North Hampton, N.H., once the home of disqualified Kentucky Derby winner Dancer’s Image, will soon be on the market with an expected price of about $5 million, Seacoast Online reports.

The six-plus acre property features a 12-stall horse barn and it’s slated to be listed at the end of May through Tate and Foss Sotheby’s International Realty.

Runnymede Farm is best known for its time under the ownership of the Fuller family. The operation was founded as a dairy farm in the 1920s by former Massachusetts governor Alvan T. Fuller, and his son Peter Fuller transitioned it into a Thoroughbred business when he took over.

Though they were born elsewhere, the list of Fuller homebreds to spend time at Runnymede Farm included Dancer’s Image and Mom’s Command, the champion 3-year-old filly of 1985.

Maryland-bred Dancer’s Image, a son of Native Dancer, crossed the wire first during the 1968 Kentucky Derby, but he was later disqualified to last after testing positive for phenylbutazone, which was not permitted at the time. Mom’s Command, a Kentucky-bred, was a five-time Grade 1 winner who clinched her Eclipse Award with victories in the Grade 1 Acorn Stakes, Mother Goose Stakes, Coaching Club American Oaks, and Alabama Stakes. Fuller’s daughter Abigail was the primary rider aboard Mom’s Command.

The Fuller family sold the property in 1998 to farm manager Lori and Brett Devenports with plans to continue as a Thoroughbred operation. The Devenports sold the farm in 2011, and the property is currently used to raise Freisans.
