Ranch History: In the 1970’s, Peter and Judy Whiting moved to a river front ranch outside of Solvang, California. Peter, who was an ex-farrier, named it the Anvil Ranch. When the current owner purchased the property (circa 2000), it then became part of the renowned River Edge Farm, a leading breeding farm of Thoroughbred horses. The farm was home to ‘Pirate’s Bounty’, three time leading California sire, and top stallions; ‘Benchmark’, ‘Bertrando’ and ‘Tribal Rule’. Their offspring have raced over 100 stake horses nationwide.
