Saratoga Stud Delivers in New York

Opened in early 2014 Saratoga Stud LLC, features a new stallion complex located just east of Saratoga Springs. Saratoga Stud, is headed by C. Lynwood O'Cain, DVM, his wife, Suzie, and Rick Burke. Dr. O'Cain, as Resident Veterinarian, oversaw the entire breeding operation of Highcliff Farm for twenty three years, while his wife was in charge of stallion promotion and development. The O'Cains are committed financially and passionately to the success of Saratoga Stud and currently offer six stallions for breeders.

Located on part of the 300-acre Irish Hill Century Farm, owned by Rick Burke, the farm is listed on the National Historical Registry. Irish Hill has been in operation since 1883, and currently provides sales preparation, boarding and transportation of Thoroughbreds, specializing in broodmare care and foaling. “We provide care for horses of all ages, primarily from the day they are born until they leave the farm for sales or training," said Rick Burke, partner in Saratoga Stud and owner/manager of Irish Hill Century Farm. "We are now a one-stop shop. Whatever the horse needs, we supply it."
