Star Track Stable was started in 1960 and has raced for nearly a half century. The original founder of the Star Track Stable was Estelle Winston whose passion for the racing business has carried over into the fourth generation of the Winston Family. Marshall Winston, her son and Peter Winston her grandson carry on the tradition started by the matriarch of the family racing business with a focus on the New York Breeding Program.
The racing stock commence their racing activities at the New York upstate venue at Finger Lakes, a racetrack where the Winston racing stock has won many stakes races often a multitude of times. The progeny of these homebred races horse families are the backbone of the racing stable. The mares offered for partnership are all half sisters or full sister to stakes winners, a standard that is the very fabric that produces well for Star Track Stable. Within the first generation of the mares are the names and resumes of significant races horses as well as New York bred champions which are prevalent in these pedigrees. Jack Betta Be Rite, a Winston family foundation mare is honored for her achievements as a racehorse and producer at Finger Lakes and Belmont Park with stakes races that are run in her honor.
