Coteau Grove Farms to Expand Breeding
Operation and Reduce Racing Stable
 
(Sunset, La.) – Keith and Ginger Myers have announced Coteau Grove Farms plans to expand its breeding operation and reduce its racing stable.
 
Coteau Grove Farms, located in Sunset, Louisiana, was founded in 2008 by the Myers with the objective of becoming a top quality breeder of Louisiana bred thoroughbred racehorses to compete in Louisiana and nationally. They purchased their first eight broodmares in November 2008 and began racing in February of 2009.
 
“From the outset, our business plan was to build our brand through racing while continuously evaluating, upgrading, and growing a high quality broodmare band,” said Keith Myers.
Since its first start in 2009, Coteau Grove Farms has had 451 starts with 108 first place finishes, 77 seconds and 56 thirds, with total purse earnings of $3.85 million dollars.
 
“Since 2011, under the leadership of Pat Devereux, Jr., we have had 318 starts with 82 firsts, 55 seconds, and 36 thirds, with purse earnings of more than $3 million dollars and average earnings per start of $9,575,” said Myers. “Perhaps most impressive is the fact that 101 of these 318 starts were stakes races with 17 stakes wins, 30 seconds, and 11 third-place finishes, coming from 20 different stakes starters.”
 
Coteau Grove Farms, through its agent Select Sales, has consigned 21 Louisiana bred yearlings and horses in training to two Louisiana sales to be held in September.
