Who We Are
About Sleeping Giant Stables
Create a racing stable that offers existing horse racing fans a heightened connection to the sport, and that attract new fans to a unique experience that no other sport can generate.
No other sport, entertainment, or hobby can compare to horse racing but few other sports can be so potentially expensive. This stable will focus on finding racing prospects, and then spreading the expense to as many as 25 partners. Ultimately, we hope to build a community from a dream.
Sleeping Giant intends to find horses of racing age (not yearlings) that are bred in New York and are bred and built like distance horses. While that will be the focus, Sleeping Giant’s first purchase is a Canadian-bred sprinter, Tuscan Queen, who won at Saratoga on July 23. The ultimate object is to get talented, sound racehorses.
David Doyle is a long-time racing enthusiast, owner, stable agent and handicapper from Hamden, Ct. He has been a practicing attorney in Connecticut since 1985. He began to buy and race horses in the late eighties, racing as Dollar Ante Stable out of the Tom Miles barn. From Tom, he learned that when buying a race horse, patience and meticulous attention to detail are essential. He has found a trainer in John Kimmel that shares this philosophy.
John Kimmel is a trainer and veterinarian based at Belmont Park and Palm Meadows Training Center in Boynton Beach, Florida. He has won close to 1400 races, including multiple graded stakes. His top runners include Breeder’s Cup champion, Bar of Gold, New York-bred millionaire, Mr. Buff, and Premium Tap, among many other stakes winners.
Sleeping Giant Stables Stats
A stakes-placed three-year old Filly, by Street Boss out of an Indian Charlie mare named Sassy Ali Joy. She won by open lengths on the turf at Saratoga on July 23 before missing by about a length in the Galway Stakes on August 15. Next time out she earned her “stakes-placed” status by rallying down the stretch to finish third in the Christiecat Stakes. Next target: The Glen Cove Stakes on October 15.
Can’t Catch Kacy
A two-year old New York bred filly by Uncaptured out of a Utopia mare, Kacy Lauren. She has raced once, finishing third in a Maiden Special Weight race at Saratoga on September 3. She should race again in late September.
Propensity is a six-year old gelding who runs best on turf or synthetic surfaces. He won his last race at Gulfstream on February 26, and will probably run back on March 24 at Gulfstream in a $20,000 claiming race.
A striking two-year old out of top sire Nyquist. He is a registered New York bred that looks and acts like a distance runner and is already showing speed in his morning workouts. We are hoping to start his career in late October.
