Megson Farms - White Thoroughbred Race Horses
Megson Farms in Benton, Kentucky has the largest herd of white thoroughbreds in the world. One of their horses was among nine animals from various farms that played the part of "Silver" in the Lone Ranger movie starring Johnny Depp.
For the past 40 years, the Megson family has been involved in all aspects of the horse business. Paul Megson has held a thoroughbred trainers license for some 26 years, and trained quarter horses before that. From the early days as Vice President of the Ohio Quarter Horse Racing Assoc., to a nine year elected span as a board member of the Ohio Thoroughbred Assoc., to five years as Director of Sales of National Equine Sales to a long carrier as a thoroughbred trainer---we have the experience that you can depend on here at Megson Farms.
A student of equine genetics and bloodline selection,Valerie Rowe Megson, Hillary Rowe Megson, and Berva Megson have studied at length under the tutelage of master breeder Dalene Knight, of Painted Desert Farms. Dalene was responsible for the isolation and perpetuation of the dominant white gene which has eluded breeders for many years. She was the leading breeder of white and multicolored thoroughbreds in the world.
Due to Dalenes retirement from the breeding business we were given the opportunity to obtain almost all of Dalenes broodmare band. Megson Farms now has the largest herd of white thoroughbred mares in North America and perhaps the entire world. All of the mares are double registered with the Jockey Club and the American Paint Horse Assoc.
