KY Stonerside Stable sold to Dubai ruler

Posted by Rachel Folz- email

PARIS, Ky. (AP) - Houston Texans owner Bob McNair has sold Paris, Ky.-based Stonerside Stables to Darley, a breeding company run by Dubai ruler Sheik Mohammed.

McNair, who founded the farm in 1994 with his wife Janice, said in a statement the time demands of running the Texans led to his decision to sell the 2,000-acre farm in central Kentucky and the training center in Aiken, S.C.

Approximately 80 horses in training and an additional 170 or so broodmares, yearlings, and weanlings were included in the deal.

Darley spokesman John Ferguson said there are no plans to change the operation at Stonerside and that it will be "business as usual" for the farm going forward.
