Peter Brant Closes the Deal on Payson Park

May 25, 2019

After a long hiatus from the Sport of Kings Peter Brant returned and pretty much picked up where he left off when he had champions with the late Leroy Jolly. Having come back to the game with horses with Chad Brown it did not take Brant long to get another champion in Mysistercharlie. Now he has gone a step further and purchased Payson Park, the training facility in Florida.

Peter Brant had this to say about the purchase:

“We’re keeping the name Payson Park as a tribute to Mrs. Payson, who had taken it to this high level and really got involved with it 40 years ago, she was the steward of it. Originally, it was strictly for my own plans. Like other leading owners, I wanted to have a place to winter without being forced to run, so you could pick your spots to race. Having your own facility allows you to decide how many starts you want in Florida or if you just want to start your campaign in New York,” Brant said. “I love the dirt course, and the turf course needs work. It needs a new rail, some help with the watering system, and it should be widened a bit. The turf track has great potential, but the great thing is that the original engineering was really done well. The drainage is really good, and it has stood the test of time.”
