Joe Guerrieri, known around the track as Joey Gee, has long had a passion for Thoroughbred racing. He got into the business less than 10 years ago, as the co-owner of a couple of horses, including Black Hornet. In 2014, he went out on his own, winning the Halton Stakes with Hampstead Heath. It was his stable’s only win that year, but, two years later, he would celebrate 25 wins, according to this Canadian Thoroughbred article.
In early 2017, Guerrieri purchased the former Gardiner Farms, and renamed it Winview because he wanted to become more hands on in the business, which was expanding to include breeding. In 2018, first crop of homebreds, earned just over $1.1 million, landing him in seventh position on Woodbine Racetrack’s top owners list.
This year, Guerrieri will stand his first stallion, Seattle Serenade, a stakes-winning son of Smart Strike from the family of Canadian Triple Crown winner With Approval and Belmont Stakes winner Touch Gold.
