Eisaman Equine in the news

‘You Build a Racehorse Little By Little’

“Everyone can be fooled by a horse,” he says. “You see the young oozing of talent, you buy him, and it just doesn’t work out.”

So far, so familiar. You’d hear as much from any number of professionals in our business, humbled by the unpredictability of the Thoroughbred. Not many people, though, would follow up with a remark as acute and original as the one offered next by Dr. Barry Eisaman: “But if it was as easy as not being fooled, everyone would have a Derby horse every other year.”

BOB BAFFERT stopped short of calling Barry Eisaman, V.M.D., a miracle worker, but the Racing Hall of Fame trainer knows the results that can come from sending a horse to Eisaman Equine Services in Williston, Florida.

“Last year, Barry had John Fort’s horses; all of Peachtree Stable’s horses were broken there,” Baffert said. “He had the [eventual 2011 Kentucky]  Oaks (G1) winner there for about a month. She was really tough: wanted to run off, was speed crazy; he got her settled. I told John when we got her  back from Barry that he should have seen her before.”

Dr. Barry and Shari Eisaman

The Eisaman Family
Barry and Shari live on the farm along with their daughter Kristina, who is an established equestrian and is currently a freshman at UF College of Veterinary Medicine. Their son Matt is a Captain in the US Air Force and also an American Airlines pilot. He and his wife, Nichole, reside in South Carolina and have two children. The Eisamans also share the farm with their three dogs.

Dr. Barry and Shari Eisaman co-own Eisaman Equine, a full-service Thoroughbred farm located on 420 acres of central Florida's fertile and tradition rich training grounds in Williston near Ocala, Florida. Their passion and experience in Thoroughbreds spans four decades. The Eisamans specialize in the breaking and training of young Thoroughbred racing prospects, rehabilitation of the Thoroughbred athlete in-training, and pinhooking 2-year-olds. For the past thirty years Eisaman Equine has broken, trained and rehabilitated thoroughbreds for many of America's leading owners, trainers and racing syndicates.

A big part of Eisaman Equine are their 2-year-olds-in-training consignments. Barry and Shari acquire as many as 30-40 yearlings annually at various sales, including Keeneland, where they have been ranked among leading buyers by numbers. Those yearlings enter the Eisamans' program where they are developed into their 2-year-old year before reselling as ready-to-race prospects. 

Unlike most agencies, Eisaman Equine only sells 2-year-olds and has made a strong impact doing it, Consistently ending up among leading consignors at the juvenile sales, the Eisamans have sharpened their focus on the 2-year-old markets close to home. Eisaman Equine is a perennial leading consignor at the Ocala Breeders' Sales Company March Sale. 

The Eisamans

Barry serves as secretary/treasurer on the board of directors at OBS.

Barry received his veterinary degree  from the University of Pennsylvania in 1976 and had practiced sports medicine in South Florida before moving to Ocala in 1982.

Eisaman Breeding Program

The Eisamans, who's facilities support stabling for 240 horses, do have their own broodmare band  that they breed annually in Florida and Kentucky. Some of those mares were fillies they sold as racing prospects and then purchased following their respective racing careers. Their homebreds are also pointed for the 2-year-olds-in-training sales.
