    Ike and Dawn Thrash are prominent thoroughbred horse owners having campaigned over 200 horses at over 20 racetracks in North America.  They were ranked in the top twenty-five owners by earnings in North America in 2010. Ike and Dawn did not necessarily grow up in the industry, but when Ike took a payment of 4 horses in lieu of cash in the early 1990s the couple never looked back.  Incidentally, none of these 4 horses were very fast, but the success of their other business endeavors afforded Ike and Dawn the opportunity to purchase additional thoroughbreds.  They have met with continued success having started horses in The Kentucky Derby, The Belmont, The Breeders Cup, and The Kentucky Oaks. 

    Their top horses include: Grade I Arkansas Derby winner and current sire, Line of David,  Grade I Del Mar Debutante winner and Grade I Oak Leaf Stakes runner-up, Tell a Kelly, Grade I Queen Elizabeth II Stakes Winner and twice Grade I runner up Her Emmynency, Grade II La Canada Stakes Winner and multiple stakes winner, Dawn after Dawn, Grade III Derby Trial winner and Tenacious Handicap winner, Hurricane Ike, Grade I Santa Anita Oaks runner-up and stakes winner, Third Dawn, multiple stakes winners, Dee Lance and Wild About Marie, Grade III Transylvania Stakes Winner, Chin High, and Landaluce Stakes winner, Emmy Darling.

    The most recent stakes horses include: Istanford, Katie’s Eyes, Path of David, and Auntjenn. Istanford ran second in the Edgewood Stakes and G3 Florida Oaks. She then beat colts in the G3 Arlington Classic. She was the first filly to win this race since 1964.  Istanford then shipped to Del Mar in California where she won both the G2 San Clemente Stakes and the Sandy Blue Handicap. Katie’s Eyes achieved a third place finish in the G3 Bourbonette Stakes, and the G2 True North Stakes, and the G2 Beaumont Stakes at Keeneland.  Katie’s Eyes also won The Giant’s Causeway Stakes at Keeneland, beating the best grass sprinters in the U.S. Auntjenn broke her maiden by 7 lengths at Del Mar, and then finished third in the G2 Sorrento Stakes. Path of David won the Eddie Logan Stakes at Del Mar and finished second in the Dueling Grounds Derby.
