Will and Bill Farish of the famed Lane's End Farm in Versailles, Ky., have joined the Water Hay Oats Alliance (WHOA) as supporting members. The father and son shared their perspective in the following statement:
“We are joining WHOA to hopefully add some momentum to the effort in Washington to pass legislation that would mandate uniform testing for all racing jurisdictions in the United States.
“It should be obvious to all that true uniform testing and doping control will never come about in our country unless it is federally mandated. Those who stand in the way of the Horseracing Integrity Act of 2017 are becoming increasingly isolated and their opposition to the bill harder to justify.
“We would like to ask all owners and breeders to encourage your representatives in Washington to support this important effort and once and for all, to achieve true uniform testing standards for our sport.” – Will and Bill Farish, Lane's End Farm.
In addition to their operation of Lane's End, a leading stallion, breeding and consignment business, the Farishes maintain a sizable racing operation in their names and in partnerships. They have served on boards or led numerous racing organizations, including Breeders' Cup, The Jockey Club, Keeneland, Churchill Downs, Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association and the National Thoroughbred Racing Association, among others.
