Bringing the exposure and excitement of horse racing back

Have you driven past barns standing proud in the distance, with picket fences surrounding beautiful thoroughbred horses? Have you become fascinated with their beauty as their coats glisten under the summer sun? Have you always dreamt of being part of their upbringing and training, and watching them race from the grandstands?

Enter Red Haven Stables managing owner, Cliff Compton whose goal is simple: make all partners feel as though the horse belongs to them. Enjoy watching the foal grow to a race horse; experience first-hand the ups and downs at the track; and stand proud next to your horse in the Winner’s Circle.

Compton has learned by example. He grew up on the farm, in Southeast Michigan along with his mother, grandfather and uncles who shared their wisdom of what makes a great race horse. He has more than 10 years of experience in thoroughbred horse racing and has surrounded himself with a professional team of buyers and trainers.

Compton is committed to bringing the exposure and excitement of the sport back to the local area. He wishes to share his passion and extend his racing family for the 2017-2018 season, which is fast approaching. Contact Red Haven Stables today to discuss what partnership level is best for you.

See you at the track!
