Richland Hills sold, renamed


The former Richland Hills/Wafare Farm property in Midway, Ky., has been sold and re-named Endeavor Farm.

The property will be operated by M&T Equine Ventures, a partnership between Terry Nickell, who has been the farm manager at Richland Hills/Wafare for 21 years; and Mark Tsagalakis, who has been training on the southern California circuit for over 20 years and maintains a stable of homebreds.

“This is a proud moment for Mark and me,” said Nickell, whose father, Harry Schmidt, managed Spendthrift Farm from 1952-76. “I have been on this property for many years, and Mark has boarded horses with us for much of that time. To have the opportunity to continue here in partnership with Mark is a dream come true. We look forward to continuing the level of excellent equine care that this farm has been noted for over two decades, with the likes of Dynaformer and Peppers Pride residing here.”

Endeavor Farm will offer seasonal and year-round boarding and sales preparation for all major U.S. Thoroughbred auctions. The farm will continued to stand the multiple stakes-winning Mr. Greeley horse Greeley’s Conquest.
