Tisbury Stud's Austin and Amanda Luttrell have purchased Springland, a 260-acre horse farm located in Bourbon County, Kentucky.

Founded in 1962 by W.K. Taylor while he was the general manager at Claiborne Farm, parts of Springland's original parcel were eventually sold to Hidden Brook and Beau Lane. However, it was Taylor's grandson, Bill Nicholls, who added to the estate in the late 1990s.

The Luttrells–who started Tisbury Stud two years ago by leasing 130 acres–intend to offer the ultimate in racehorse care with breeding, foaling, racetrack lay ups and sales prep as focal points.

“We have an incredible farm, great clients and a very solid team,” said Austin Luttrell. “I might be the last Kentuckian who grew up in a tobacco field to start a horse farm. It is a dream come true.”

Austin's equine background includes stints serving under several trainers like Rusty Arnold, Christophe Clement and Kiaran McLaughlin. He also worked for Magic Millions in Australia before becoming a manager at Denali Stud and Donamire Farm in Kentucky.

As for Amanda, she is a life-long equestrian and former show jumper who was based in Middleburg, Virginia and Wellington, Florida before moving to Kentucky.

“I'm excited to expand the business,” Austin said. “Our top priority at Tisbury Stud is to get horses into the winner's circle.”
