David Mowat, who operates under Ten Broeck Farm, is a native of Seattle, Wa., graduating from the University of Washington with a degree in civil engineering. He and his son Mark, now a partner, own and operate David A. Mowat Company, a highway and bridge construction business.

David bought a yearling several decades ago and has been involved in Thoroughbred racing ever since. “The yearling probably wasn’t much of a horse, but I got interested and I stuck with it,” he said. “For me, breeding made the most sense, and I had to pay attention and make it a business to make it work.”

His first farm was Teanaway Ranch in western Washington. He moved his horses to Kentucky in 1989 when he bought the 220-acre Fawn Leap Farm. He sold that farm to John Oxley and purchased 130-acre Ten Broeck Farm in Midway, Ky., in the mid-‘90s. Though he sold the farm in July 2003, he continues to race under the name of Ten Broeck Farm.
