Team

Lyn Burleson

Lyn Burleson

Owner and General Manager

A native Texan and third generation horseman, Lyn began his full time career in the Thoroughbred industry in 1992 after accepting a full time position at Taylor Made Farm.  After going through two cycles of the breeding and sales season, he relocated to Ocala, Florida to move through and learn the ranks of the 2-year-old in-training sales under the supervision of Jerry Bailey.

Lyn later returned to Lexington, Kentucky to manage a farm and sales consignment for the prominent industry leaders, Becky Thomas, and Lewis Lakin at Lakland Farm.  After a successful 10 year run, the Thomas/Lakin partnership was dissolved in 2006 resulting in the formation of Burleson Farms.  In September 2006, Burleson Farms sold the new Keeneland September sale record yearling for $11.7 million for long time client Richard Santulli.

Modesty Burleson, VMD

Modesty Burleson, VMD

Owner/Resident Veterinarian

Modesty was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania and has been involved with horses since the age of six. She owned her first pony by the age of nine, which began her competitive equestrian career. Hard work and dedication led her to Virginia Polytechnic and State University for her undergraduate degree and then to the University of Pennsylvania School of Veterinary Medicine.

After graduating with her veterinary degree, Modesty performed an equine ambulatory internship at Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Riddle. She spent the following year as the resident veterinarian for Shadwell Farm owned by Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum and then stayed on with Rood and Riddle Equine Hospital as an ambulatory associate.

In 2010, Modesty was hired by Lisa Lourie to become the resident veterinarian for Spy Coast Farm. Spy Coast Farm specializes in the breeding and development of top quality performance horses with three locations including Lexington, KY, Wellington, FL, and Tryon, NC. Breeding show jumpers has allowed Modesty to expand her knowledge of equine reproduction to include breeding with artificial insemination using cooled and frozen semen. She also incorporates advanced reproductive technology including embryo transfer and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
