Virginians Len and Ellen Kill Kelley are TOBA’s newest members of the month. TOBA members since 1994, the Kill Kelleys own and operate their 25-acre Sea Jay Farm in Nokesville, Va.

The Kill Kelleys purchased their first Thoroughbred in the early 1980s and today, Sea Jay Farm is home to nine horses. The Kill Kelly’s board and foal their eight mares at Windmill Farm near Versailles, KY and have five horses in training with Lori Bourne who runs them at Charles Town, Laurel and Colonial Downs among others.

The Kill Kelleys are also very passionate about finding second careers and providing a dignified retirement for Thoroughbreds that have completed their racing careers. Several of their homebreds have gone on to be successful event and show horses. The couple also recently visited the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation’s (TRF) James River Work Center in Crozier, Virginia, and were quite impressed with the work being done at the facility.
