Augustin Stable, George Strawbridge

Hall of Fame Owner

Biography: For over 40 years, the green and white silks of George Strawbridge, Jr.’s Augustin Stables have been worn on steeplechase and flat racers, including 1994 Breeders’ Cup Turf champion Tikkanen and 2008 Filly and Mare Turf champion Forever Together. Augustin Stable is the all-time leading steeplechase owner in North America, and is currently ninth among flat owners in 2011. Much of the stable’s success has come from the long-term relationship between Strawbridge and trainer Jonathan Sheppard. Strawbridge, a philanthropist, historian, investor and educator, currently resides with his wife, Nina, in Cochranville, PA.
