Andrew Farm and On Our Own Stable

 

Aquadini races for Richard Brodie’s Andrew Farm and David Berman’s On Our Own Stable.

Brodie has owned horses since the 1970s, starting with low-level claimers at tracks then running in and near his hometown of Detroit. He raced Duveen, winner of the 2007 Palm Beach (G3) at Gulfstream and Crown Royal American Turf (G3) at Churchill Downs, and Out of Sync, runner-up in the 2000 Frizette (G1) at Belmont.

Andrew Farm often races horses in partnerships. The operation has a couple dozen horses at the track with trainers Wesley Ward and Dallas Stewart and has a few horses racing in Ireland.

Brodie graduated from Michigan State University in 1964 with a degree in business. In the early 1970s, he bought and still owns Wico Metal Products, a supplier to Detroit’s auto industry.

Watching Secretariat win the Triple Crown sparked Berman’s interest in racing when he was young. Years later, he fulfilled his dream of owning a racehorse when he contacted West Point Thoroughbreds and bought a share of Flashy Bull, who took him to the 2006 Kentucky Derby.

Through his association with West Point, Berman met Stewart, who now trains On Our Own’s horses.

Berman established On Our Own Stable in 2011 with his father, Bob. On Our Own Stable currently campaigns four horses as sole owner and two, including Aquadini, in partnership with Andrew Farm. Berman also has one 2-year-old in training.

Berman, 53, was born and still lives in Long Island, New York. He graduated from Long Island University in 1988 with a degree in business management and in 2000 co-founded Met Sales & Installations in Farmingdale, New York, selling and installing bathroom partitions and fixtures.
