Twin Creeks Racing Stables, LLC is a private racing partnership shared by two childhood friends who have a common thread: a passion for horses and racing.
Steve Davison and Randy Gullatt started pursuing their passion for racing fresh out of high school in the mid 80’s and never dreamed that they would be where they are today!
At that time Randy was just beginning his training career and knew Steve liked to go to the track and bet on the horses. He found a horse he wanted to claim and asked Steve if he wanted to go into partnership with him: That horse was LaVivat who they claimed for $7500.
The venture was nothing serious at the time but both agreed that if their new racehorse won they would invest their profits to claim another horse. She won.
Randy wanted to build on their success so he watched and studied the methods of the more experienced and successful trainers. He galloped, groomed and hot-walked all his horses and learned hands on what did and didn't work.
Within six short years Steve and Randy accumulated horses such as Missouri Ace, who they claimed for $35,000 and turned into a multiple stakes winner. Joey Jr. who held a the world record for 7 -1/2 furlongs on the turf. Then there was Miss Jesy who held the "Horse of the Meet" title at Bay Meadows.
In 1992, due to raising a family, the focus shifted from the racetrack to establishing a breeding program. Randy packed up his family and moved to Kentucky and thus Twin Creeks Farm was established. Randy picked the best race mares he had in his barn to develop a broodmare band, and leading that band was multiple stakes winner LaPaz. She ultimately gave Steve and Randy their first KY Derby horse in 2010 with multiple Grade 2 winner and Grade 1 - placed MISSION IMPAZIBLE.
In 2007 both Steve and Randy decided to get back to their childhood passion for racing. They started seeking out yearlings with athletic physicals and pedigree at the premier sales to build a racing stable while still continuing to build on their breeding program.
By the spring of 2008, they had their first starter from the individuals they had picked in the previous fall auctions. That first starter was GARDEN DISTRICT who won her debut at Keeneland and followed that performance with a second in the Kentucky S.(G3) against RUN AWAY AND HIDE(now sire). A month after that she won the Debutante S. (G3) defeating eventual Horse of the Year RACHEL ALEXANDRA.
The rest is history!
