About Vintage Thoroughbreds

About Us

Vintage Thoroughbreds is a family owned operation with a love for racing, breeding and showing horses. Vintage Thoroughbreds LLC was founded in 2007 in partnership with the Johnston family. Three generations of their family from Roy and Judy to grandchildren Ryan, Jillian, Annabel, Emma and Abby have developed strong friendships with the Charlton family and we all share in a love for thoroughbred racing.

David Charlton is the President of Vintage Thoroughbreds and is an active breeder and owner of Thoroughbred race horses. He is currently on the board of the Pennsylvania Horse Breeders Association (PHBA).

Focus On Success

Vintage Thoroughbreds focuses on breeding high quality PA-breds to race and sell. We also purchase high class weanlings, yearling and horses of racing age with the goal of competing at the highest levels of the sport.

In 2012 Vintage Thoroughbreds got its first Grade 1 winner as a co-owner of Desert Blanc, the winner of the Manhattan Handicap on Belmont Stakes day. We work with bloodstock agent Peter Bradley in purchasing the horses. Current horses are trained by Bernie Houghton, Steve Asmussen and Michael Stidman.

Claudia Dollinger is the Farm Manager at Vintage Thoroughbred Farm. She brings a great passion to providing top-notch care to all of our horses.

Horses racing as Vintage Thoroughbred Farm or under David Charlton are solely owned by the Charlton family. Roy Johnston is an equal partner on horses that run as Vintage Thoroughbreds LLC. We also partner on horses with Bradley Thoroughbreds and Marchfore.
