Barbara Banke, wife of wine mogul and Stonestreet Stables founder Jess Jackson who died earlier this year, has said she will continue to run the breeding business, taking a greater role in the operation of the farm. The Thoroughbred operation will be represented at this year's Breeders' Cup by My Miss Aurelia in the Juvenile Fillies and Wilburn in the Dirt Mile, writes Deirdre Biles for The BloodHorse.

“We're going forward and my plans for the farm are to continue a high-end breeding program there,” Banke said. “We'll continue to make sure we have a top, top operation and keep trying to produce the elusive great racehorse. When we sold yearlings earlier this year, we actually met our anticipated budget, which was a good thing.”
