Fashion Farms (Jules Siegel)
Hall of Famer Jules Siegel’s Fashion Farms has been a powerhouse in both racing and breeding for multiple decades. A retired pharmacist who operated a successful chain of drug stores, Jules and his late-wife Arlene established Fashion Farms in New Hope, Pennsylvania in 1984. After selling his drug store chain in 1995, Jules Siegel acquired first-rate broodmares, bred them to top sires to produce successful racehorses, then retained the mares for future breeding, building success upon success. The 1995 Hambletonian champion Tagliabue provided Siegel with his first of many award-winning trotters and pacers, including Galleria, Broadway Hall, Village Jolt, Broadway Schooner and Broadway Donna. Siegel has been recognized with several top honours during his time in racing, including being named the recipient of the United States Harness Writers Association’s Owner of the Year award in 2002 and 2009. Siegel became a member of the U.S. Harness Racing Hall of Fame in 2017.
