Glengate Farms (Jim Bullock)
It was over 10 years ago when Jim Bullock shuttered the doors on Glengate Farms as a commercial breeding operation. One of the largest of its kind in Ontario, Glengate was home to all-star stallions Angus Hall, Apaches Farm and Balanced Image. While he remained in the sport after the closure of Glengate, Bullock’s passion for standardbreds and standardbred racing led him to renovate a thoroughbred farm close to the town of Erin, a spot he purchased a few years back, using it to build up a strong trotting broodmare band (there is room on the farm for nearly 40 broodmares). Friend and racing partner John Bax purchased the original Glengate Farm to be closer to Woodbine Mohawk Park. Bullock was president and CEO of Cadillac Fairview Corporation between 1987 and 1993 and held the same title at Laidlaw Inc. from 1993 to 1999. He is also a former board member at Woodbine Entertainment Group.
