Tommy Town Thoroughbreds
A Leading California Farm Achieving Success Through Dedication To Excellence
Tommy Town Thoroughbreds is continuing to pursue their goal of becoming one of California’s premier breeding farms, as well as a top training facility. Tommy Town was named leading breeder in California for 2013 and 2009. The stallions standing in 2015 are Boisterous, Gervinho, Jeranimo, Kafwain, Ministers Wild Cat, Old Topper and Unusual Heatwave all multiple stakes winners, in addition to Grazen.
Tommy Town was established in 2000 by Tom and Debi Stull with the purchase of a 165-acre ranch, formerly known as the Westerly Training Center, in the lush Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara County. To accommodate growth, the Stulls acquired an additional 200 adjoining acres. The training side of the farm has 100 stalls, a custom equi-cruiser, and a seven-furlong track that is maintained by two full-time workers. On the breeding side, there is a 35-stall foaling barn. With over 350 acres of land, the farm offers pasture boarding for mares, foals and yearlings year-round.
Tommy Town has been successful in assembling and retaining an outstanding team. The Ranch Manager, Mike Allen, joined Tommy Town in 2001. Esteban Melchor, assistant stallion manager since 2001, was promoted to stallion manager in 2008. To ensure effective rehabilitation of injured horses, the farm works closely with Alamo Pintado Equine Clinic, in addition to the breeding veterinarian, Dr. Bill Stevenson, who specializes and is expert in the care of broodmares and foals. The farm has 30 employees who live on site.
