About Us

Dee and Betty Raper have been serving the horse industry since 1973, specializing in providing proven bloodlines for racing.


The farm was moved to its present location in Norman, Oklahoma in 1992. The farm sits on 320 acres in what was originally called the Ten Mile Flat area of Norman.

During their 30-plus years in the stallion breeding business, Dee and Betty have stood many of the greats in the industry including Easy Jet in 1985. The farm is a hands-on operation for Dee and Betty. On a daily basis you will find each of them in the barns, offices, or as Dee says “taking care of business”. Both have been very active in working for the industry and horse racing in Oklahoma.
