Longtime New York Colleagues Join Forces to

Establish the State's Largest Stallion Facility

Saratoga Springs, NY—Joe and Anne McMahon, owners of McMahon of Saratoga Thoroughbreds are proud to announce the addition of the Highcliff Stallions to the farm for 2013. C. Lynwood O'Cain, DVM and Suzie O'Cain, Stallion Development, commented, “We could not be more thrilled. We have always dreamed of bringing Saratoga Thoroughbred breeders to the forefront in the state, and with 14 stallions, including the sire of a 2012 Eclipse winner and the sire of a 2012 Grade I stakes winner, we felt now was the time to make the dreams of both families a reality.”


Horseman Joe McMahon and Suzie O'Cain have spent many years working together on the boards of several state organizations, including the New York Thoroughbred Breeders. Dr. O'Cain adds his vast knowledge of reproduction therapy, while Anne McMahon continues her role in hands on horsemanship and farm management.

Suzie O'Cain added, “Doc and I spent 26 years 45 minutes away from Saratoga, and with the closing of Highcliff Farm after Carl Lizza's passing, we wanted our friends and clients to know we would always be close and involved with their bloodstock investments. Anne and Joe are, not only two of our good friends, their farm is just five minutes down the road and Doc and I will be there on a regular basis. We all feel this will be the best Thoroughbred Stallion Station in the Northeast.”

Highcliff Stallions Bob and John, Congaree, Cosmonaut, Maybry's Boy, Smart Bid, and Stonesider join McMahon Stallions Alphabet Soup, Catienus, Here Comes Ben, Justenuffhumor, Mr. Sekiguchi, Teuflesberg, Touch Gold, and Utopia (JPN) for the 2013 breeding season.
