Welcome From John C. Harris

Welcome to the Website of Harris Farms!

My family and I have been in the California Thoroughbred business for over 40 years here in beautiful Coalinga, California. We have devoted almost 600 acres of prime California farm land to Thoroughbred operations.

The Farm has been split into two distinct ranches; 450 acres in Coalinga, form the main ranch with the remaining 140 acres, located in Sanger, California specializing in the young developing horses and long term lay-ups.

We are here to meet all of your racing and breeding needs. We believe that we have the best Thoroughbred facilities in the nation and one of the oldest continuously operated facilities in the state. We have produced numerous Eclipse Award Winners, California champions and divisional leaders including Breeders’ Cup winners Tiznow and Thor’s Echo as well as Soviet Problem who placed by a nose in the Grade 1 Breeders Cup Sprint.

Harris Farms stands several stallions from the proven to the first year sire and some developing fine young sires that have the potential to be superior sires. Our location is ideal for lay-ups, in that we are located half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco and the clean air and sandy loam soil of the San Joaquin Valley is excellent for the horses in training.

Browse the site, you will be impressed with the depth of our facilities. We offer breeding, breaking, training and lay-up services that are unmatched in the country.

After browsing our website, visit our Ranch. I think that you will be as enthusiastic as I am. Our record speaks for itself.

Sincerely:

John C. Harris
Chairman and CEO
