Valkyre Stud was founded in 1978 and is located in the rolling hills of central Kentucky just east of Georgetown, KY. The Valkyre Stud philosophy has always been to concentrate on quality instead of quantity. We value our many long term client relationships that have developed over the years.The farm size, and the Thoroughbred client base have grown together through the years.
Today, Valkyre Stud cares for approximately 60 horses and serves 25 clients from around the world– most have been with us for over 30 years. Resident mares are shipped for breeding to stallions around Central Kentucky and return to the farm the same day. The resulting foals are raised until yearling age, then are either sold at public auction or retained by their owners as racing prospects. Successful race fillies often return here to join the broodmare band alongside their mothers.Owner Catherine Parke takes and active role in the day-to-day management of the farm and personally inspects all the horses daily.
Good fortune and hard work has allowed Valkyre Stud to raise 6 Grade I stakes winners, such as millionaires Milwaukee Brew ($2,879,612), Riskaverse ($1,017,706), Northern Emerald, Stormello—the winner of the 2006 Hollywood Futurity (GI)— and most recently Haimish Hy—the winner of the 2009 Hollywood Derby (GI).
Valkyre also offers the finest in auction representation and has sold five yearlings at the Keeneland sales for over $1 million for our clients.
If you have ever considered investing in the Thoroughbred industry, whether for business or pleasure, don’t hesitate to call us. We can guide you to a successful, long-term client relationship. They are our specialty.
