Although she started breeding horses in the 1970s she only began breeding Thoroughbreds to sell eight years ago and has had some success in the endeavor. Her operation is small. She breeds two mares a season, often in Kentucky, and then brings them home for the duration of their pregnancy. Neighbor and good friend, former rider and trainer, Vivian Rall fills the role of midwife when foaling time comes. She has overseen the foaling of all of Pitts’ mares however, in the case of Alwaysmining, she was absent due to the passing of her own mother. Difficult as it was to fill Rall’s shoes, neighboring Willow Oaks farm manager Darin Martin was on call and handled the delivery.
