As the 2015 racing season drew to a close we are proud to report that all our older runners were winners, and all our 2 yr olds made at least 1 start. Stanz In Command was named champion 2yr old.

Stakes winners were Hollywood Miss and Stanz In Command and Timber King was Stakes placed.

The racing season got under way with Charming Silver breaking her maiden in convincing fashion at first asking, soon after Hollywood Miss had finished 2nd in the opening stake race for fillies and mares to a highly bred New York runner aptly called Rather Beautiful, Hollywood Miss then turned the tables on that one in the 2nd Stake race for the girls on Victoria Day,

meaning foal watch is finished for this year.

This year has been much more exciting for us due to all the fabulous photographers posting pictures almost daily on their facebook pages of spring training mornings at Hastings. We would scan the pictures and share when we found our babies. Check out our facebook page, White house stables farm. I’m finding it easier to post regular updates there.

2015 has got under way and Serengeti foaled, a colt this time, on Feb 2nd again!!!! A full brother to Stanley & Sarah, we’ve called him Sunny. The other mares are all pregnant and we are losing sleep keeping a wary eye on them, though no one looks imminent, you never know, and missing a foaling is not an option. Serengeti reinforced that as her foaling started wrongly but we were quickly able to get it on the right track, we hate to think what would have resulted had we not been there!

2014 was a great year for White House bred runners and we are full of anticipation for all the young horses that will be out there this year as well as all the old stalwarts. Golden Ration, 9 this year, Herbie D, Hello Frankie, Hollywood Miss, Andallthatitmeans, Jaques Pot, and the as yet unraced  Charming Silver, Secretarian, Timber King, Stanz In Command, Leading Lady, Holly Hollywood and Supernova Sally… that is a lot of horses to be excited about for us,  from such a small operation!!!

The quality of Second In Commands runners, winning stakes and allowance races in Toronto, California and Arizona as well as locally, have left me with an easy decision as to who to breed to this year.


Herbie D swept all the awards at the year end including Horse of the Year in BC and Horse of the meet in Seattle at Emerald Downs. wow….. His brother is a real fire cracker with a big personality, we can’t wait to see him on the racetrack too.

A big thanks to all the owners and trainers who patiently mold our youngstock into winners.

Pictures of our current off spring can be seen on our facebook page which you can link to on our web sites home page


Holly Hollywood


Stanz In Command


Leading Lady

Congratulations to George Robbins and trainer Rob Gilker Herbie D was named Horse of the year in 2013, champion Sprinter in 2012 after being champion 3 year old BC bred for 2011. Another champion born and raised at White House Stables.
We’ve been breeding for 31 years, and selling in the annual thoroughbred auction since we quit training in 1993. In that time we’ve raced & sold horses for the track. They have made over 400 starts averaging over 20 starts per horse, winning 50 races and in the money 40% of starts [158 times] whilst earning over 1 million dollars. We’ve also foaled & raised some great runners for clients, with similar strong results. We take pride in doing a very good job.

2013 racing
Herbie D Another year older and stronger, he’s been managed with great care and patience, what will he do this year, after being named champion sprinter in 2012.

Now a winner of 9 from 12 starts, next race the Longacres Mile. August 18th

Hello Frankie  Returned to race in Seattle after a year off, finishing 4th in a non winners of 2 allowance beaten less then 2 lengths in a very fast race.
Hollywood Miss. A 3yr old full sister to Frankie, in the powerful Troy Taylor barn. winner in her first race, against Miss Derek who has since won a stake, currently in R & R after a 3rd place finish in her 2nd start.Hopefully she will go on to be the really good horse that Ookster was cut out to be but sadly never got the chance.
Andallthatitmeans, a Cause To Believe 2 yr old was trained under the watchful eye of Craig Macpherson for owner Peter Redekop. He now is in the barn of Anita Bolton and won his first attempt at a stake by over 10 lengths, having taken a couple of races  to learn what to do.
