The start of the racing season at Woodbine saw the first recipient of the new ‘Owners’ Spotlight’ recognized in the newly, re-launched Johnnie Walker Owners’ Lounge. Mark and Mike Romeo of Terra Racing Stable accepted the honour on behalf of their entire family for their long-time dedication to the sport. The Romeos are no strangers to Woodbine. Family patriarch, Dom, began breeding and racing horses more than 40 years ago – a passion that was passed down to Dom’s sons Frank and Mark, and then onto Mike. Now, a fourth generation is stepping into the racing world.

Brothers Frank and Mark now run the stable’s day-to-day operations. Some of Terra’s past stable stake winners include Bold N Flashy, Flashy N Smart, Katherine of Ascot, Marco Be Good, Big Red Mike, and Amalfi Coast. Terra’s current stable star is 3-year-old filly Fashionable Fab who won last year’s Shady Wells Stake. Terra keeps a small broodmare band and races the offspring.

“Terra Racing Stable is honoured to be recognized in the Owner’ Spotlight,” writes Mike. “This wonderful sport has provided many great memories for four generations of the Romeo family. Our success is rooted in the hard work put in everyday by the farm staff, grooms, exercise riders, jockeys, trainers, and of course, the amazing horses we have bred and owned over the years.”

Stay tuned for the announcement of the next Owners’ Spotlight recipient in June.
