The 900 acres that were once populated by mares and foals that won racing classics are now empty. The stallion stalls are bare. With the passing of founder William J. Perretti earlier this year, the era of one of harness racing’s most successful breeding farms – Perretti Farms – has come to a close…Karyn Malinowski, director of the Rutgers Equine Science Center at the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station, said, "No doubt that Perretti Farms was the leading standardbred farm in the state of New Jersey. Not only were the animals and stallions standing there first class for the state of New Jersey, they were world class."
