McMahon Thoroughbreds History

McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds, LLC was founded in 1971 with the purchase of 100 acres on Fitch Road in the town of Saratoga, New York. Located just five minutes from the track, the farm had been the summer home of Virginia socialite Liz Whitney Tippet. Gradually over the next five years, her stable colors of Purple and Pink would be replaced by the modest colors of the Saratoga backside, Green and White.

 

Located just five minutes from the farm, the Saratoga backside was the beginning of our farm's history. It was on the backside that 16 year old Joe McMahon began working as a groom, hotwalker, and exercise boy. It was also the beauty of the backside that attracted Anne McMahon to Saratoga and eventually to Skidmore College. - Click here for more history
