Timber Town Stable’s mission is to utilize the most cutting-edge technologies, the most accomplished professionals in their fields, the very best and balanced nutrition programs, and apply the savviest horsemanship, in an effort to produce a healthy, athletic, and sound Thoroughbred racing prospect.


Wayne Sweezey – Principal
In 2007, along with Cathy, Wayne began to actualize his vision of Timber Town Stable. Together, their experience has created an enriching environment rarely found on horse farms today. Horsemanship is their strong suit, and their management skills have guided Timber Town to successes in the sales ring and on the racetrack.


Cathy Sweezey – Principal
In 2001, Cathy opened the first Timber Town Stable. Today, Cathy is involved actively in all aspects of Timber Town Stable’s management, with her primary focus on the rehabilitation, quarantine, and yearling-breaking divisions. The success of Timber Town is due largely to Cathy’s passion and love for the horse.


Shelley Bunning – Farm Manager
Youth and exceptional horsemanship are a rare combination. Shelley comprises both, with her devotion to the horse and her professional attitude. A native of the United Kingdom, Shelley’s equine experience began on some of the best farms in Newmarket, England. Shelley is always affable and always available.


Carol Schmelz – Office Manager/Farm Coordinator
In 2013, Carol joined Timber Town as Office Manager and Farm Coordinator. Her experience is vast, having spent many years in the field as a farm manager and, most recently, the farm coordinator for Darby Dan Farm. Wayne and Carol have worked together for over twenty years. The importance of Carol’s experience is not only an asset to the farm operations, but is just as valuable to our clients and client communication.


Kent Sweezey II – Racing Liaison
As his career has drawn him to the racetrack, today, Kent is Assistant Trainer to Grade I-winning trainer, Jimmy Jerkens. Kent’s bases of operation are Belmont, Saratoga, and Gulfstream Park. As Timber Town’s representative at the races, Kent plays a critical role in bringing mares and sales prospects to the farm.


Elizabeth Sweezey Morrell – Social Media Manager
Liz is excited to be back in the family business, albeit remotely, as Social Media Manager. Most recently, Liz was the Vice President of Policy and External Relations at FairWinds Partners in Washington, DC. A 2007 graduate of The University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, and a four-year Varsity Equestrian, Liz currently lives in New York City with her husband, Michael, and yellow Lab, Baxter.
