Farrell W. Jones Thoroughbred Farm

A Superior Facility Devoted
Entirely to Racehorse Rehabilitation

    In 25 years on the California circuit, the late Farrell Jones was several times the leading trainer at every track in the state--Santa Anita, Hollywood Park, Bay Meadows, Golden Gate Fields, and Tanforan. At Del Mar, he was the leading trainer 11 times.
     Although he trained many good horses, including the top handicap mare Manta, he won those titles with claiming horses. Most claiming horses have soundness problems, and Farrell Jones learned his lessons well.
     After he retired from training, experience and expertise provided guidance for his own racehorse rehabilitation center--the Farrell W. Jones Thoroughbred Farm. The farm's veteran staff now is headed by manager Marcos Menjivar, who's been at the farm since 1985, and carries on the work of his late mentor.
A Major Addition to Our Racehorse
Rehabilitation Program!
The Odyssey Performance Trainer provides a state-of-the-art solution for exercising, training and rehabilitating horses. For details, click here.
       The heart of the rehabilitation program at the farm is this 60-foot hot-and-cold-water aquatherapy treadmill, modified from the standard by the lengthening of the entry and exit ramps to reduce the angle of slope and the deepening of the water in the treadmill itself.
     The water treadmill makes it possible for a horse to regain condition while putting minimum weight on those recovering legs. Most horses at the farm go on the treadmill 30 days before returning to the track, where they're ready to breeze upon their arrival.
     The farm has a high success rate with problems of feet, bowed tendons, knees, suspensories, tibias, stifles, and hocks as well as with bleeders. Before therapy begins, problems are identified with the help of state-of-the-art heat sensors.
     Technology alone doesn't repair sore horses. Expertise is the key, and the Farrell Jones-trained staff provides that.

    Hundreds of horses have come to Farrell W. Jones Thoroughbred Farm and returned to the track to win races, including Fly Till Dawn, Capo di Capo, Five Star Day, La Feminn, Forest Camp, and many others.

    The focus of the farm's efforts is clearly shown by the list of daily charges, consisting of just five offerings: Stalls $27.00, pens $24.00, grass pasture $13.00, treadmill $13.00, sale preparation $32.00 (includes treadmill).
