Welcome to Echo Hill Farm - Quality Paint Thoroughbreds & Sporthorses
Echo Hill Farm is home of JC/APHA Frame and Sabino Overo stallion Blue Eyed Streaker and Koda Chrome, JC/APHA Stallion.
Our goal is to produce and promote quality sporthorses with great minds, beautiful conformation and movement, and when the stars align, amazing color.
Echo Hill Farm is a family operation located in Louisville, Kentucky, 60 miles west of Lexington's thoroughbred country and home to Churchill Downs. Owned and operated by Christopher and Karen Babcock, the farm is situated on 28 acres of partially wooded and rolling ground abundant in wildlife and over looking Floyd's Fork and the Echo Trail valley. Our love of Thoroughbreds is not unique in a part of the country where racing, eventing, fox hunting and pleasure riding are deep rooted in everyday life. It was with the purchase of the of our stallion Blue Eyed Streaker that our passion for the Thoroughbred and the desire for the unusual came together. This amazingly beautiful and kind stallion is now the focus of our small breeding program, and our goal is to develop, promote, and produce beautiful horses for show, sport or pleasure.
Koda Chrome made his racing debut. Koda Chrome has surpassed all our hopes and expectations with a PERFECTLY marked and very handsome dark bay Frame Overo stallion. Koda Chrome made his racing debut in May 7of 2015. Trained by Tom Drury, Jr in skylight Kentucky, Koda handled the excitement beautifully, he placed third in a Maiden Allowance at Belle Terre Park.
As with any breeding program, we strive to select our mares to produce correct, athletic and beautiful types, and will continually seek to improve our breeding stock. We invite you to view our site, and welcome questions and comments. Please check back for updates, and enjoy your visit!
