Todd Beattie was called upon to help bring Our Khrysty to the next level. Todd has been among the leading trainers at Penn National for years but his success has certainly reached out beyond the confines of Grantville, Pa. He has trained Breeders Cup Sprinter Fabulous Strike who has earned in excess of $1 million dollars in purses.
Born: 1963 in Antigo, Wisc., the same hometown as Hall of Fame trainer D. Wayne Lukas and New York trainer Linda Rice
Kimberly Graci / Ryan Beattie
This team is presently racing in Kim's name, yet the duo works together on a daily basis. They have a combined 20 years experience and bring a lot more to the table than time on the backstretch.
Kevin heads up our "Renpher South" string.
Our horses are trained at Kevin's training center located approximately 60 miles south east of Dallas, Texas.
This allows us to ship to Lone Star, Sam Houston, Retama, Lousiana and more.
Kevin has been around horses his entire life, bringing to us invaluable experience pertaining to the day to day care of our horses. He is "hands" on overseeing his operatins everyday. Kevin always remains available and is quick to help any time we need him. We appreciate his willingness to help on short notice and love the care and loyalty he brings to the table. Kevin encourages partner visits on race night as well as during training.
Lester Stickler Jr.
Most of our success can be attributed to the hard work ethics of Les Stickler Jr. Les was the first trainer we called upon when we arrived at Penn National. We hit the ground running winning our very first start together, then winning 7 of our first 12 starts! We have had success together with 2yos, claimers and Allowance caliber horses. We even won a Stake race together!
Brandon had 6 years experience at the age of 24. His record speaks for itself. He has 65 wins in 313 starts lifetime which places him in the elite class of trainers able to maintain a 20% win clip.
