About the Owner
Lady Sheila Stable/Edition Farm
Lady Sheila Stable
Sheila Rosenblum, former ballerina and model, began her journey into horse racing in 2009. Owning and managing nearly 45 thoroughbreds through her Lady Sheila Stable, its sister syndicates and other partnerships, Rosenblum’s passion and focus has been getting women more involved in the sport.
Since 2011, Lady Sheila Stable's horses have gone on to earn over $6.1 million. Through the all-female syndications Lady Sheila Stable Two and Triumphant Trio, in addition to the original Lady Sheila Stable, Rosenblum has enjoyed tremendous success in the past years with stakes winning horses like Hot City Girl (City Zip), Matt King Coal (Cool Coal Man), and Holiday Disguise (Harlan's Holiday).
The horse that really put Rosenblum on the map, however, is La Verdad (Yes It's True), who she purchased privately along with her yearling half-sister Hot City Girl. La Verdad earned just over $1.5 million, winning 16 of 25 starts, virtually dominating the female sprint division in New York and ultimately winning the 2015 Eclipse Award for champion female sprinter.
This year, in addition to partnering with Edition Farm’s international turf champion A Shin Forward now standing at Rockridge Stud, Lady Sheila Stable is venturing into the international racing world with a number of runners who will compete in Europe.
Rosenblum is on the board of TOBA (Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association), Thoroughbred Charities of America and is an advocate for thoroughbred aftercare through New Vocations.
Edition Farm began when Vivien Malloy and her husband, Harry, bought their first broodmare, Roberta’s Dream, in 1981. Since then, Edition Farm’s breeding program has achieved national and international success with stakes winners across America, Japan and Turkey.
Since founding Edition Farm, Malloy has twice been named the top owner and breeder in New York state by the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders’ Association (2006 and 2010), as well as the 2010 Breeder of the Year by New York Thoroughbred Breeders, Inc.
What began modestly with a little tractor shed and pony at Malloy’s first home in Purchase, N.Y., significantly grew into 200 acres in Hyde Park.
