Elaine Bodine Carroll was born in Brooklyn, NY but grew up in the Montgomery area and is known by many local and national horse people. Her passion for the Thoroughbred brought her into the world through a friend. She purchased a nicely bred Saratoga Six mare, sent her to Ocala to be bred and produced a filly that put her in the Select Yearling Sales in Ocala.  "I'm very fortunate to have (and still do) worked with some top breeders and sellers in the racing industry. We have bought and raised several nice horses through the years and the industry has been very good to me."
Elaine sold privately and publicly. "To go to a sale and look for that one weanling or yearling to purchase can be very trying. You have to be able to look at that individual and determine what the horse is going to look like in a year. I pride myself in the conformation knowledge I have acquired. I don't think people realized the hard work that goes into fitting and training of these horses for sales."
Elaine is bringing her professional knowledge into the Off Track Thoroughbred. "Its funny how the circle goes; now I'm bringing quality, sound, off track thoroughbreds back in order to give them a great second career."  I can promise we will bring you the "Best of the Best" for your next show prospect. All horses must meet a certain standard to come to Bar-El and I'm proud to be associatied with outstanding owners/breeders who truly care about their horses. "
We look forward to hearing from you and if there is any type of Thoroughbred you're looking for please feel free to contact us. We will be more than happy to find the perfect horse for you.
