“Our goal is to establish the best breeding operation we can for Florida’s breeders,” Lichoa said. “Breeders are relying on the stud farms to offer quality stallions. We want to find the best horses and stallions for Florida. We’re committed to the Florida program and we want to be here for Florida breeders and help improve the industry.”
