With 800 acres in Allentown, NJ, White Birch maintains a broodmare band of more than 100 head. In 2012 and 2013, it was named harness racing’s Breeder of the Year, having bred the champions Bee A Magician and Captaintreacherous.

The training center, with its five-eighths-mile stonedust track, half-mile sand jogging track and seven-eighths-mile straightaway, consists of 11 barns that presently house approximately 300 horses.
