Season To Ready’s Image To Be Auctioned As Fundraiser For Springcliff Farm Barn Fire

One week after a farm destroyed Springcliff Farm, one of Indiana's leading Thoroughbred foaling farms, fundraising efforts have ramped up to help the Cagle family recover from the devastating loss.

While a cause to the fire has yet to be confirmed, clean up will soon begin on the more than 100-year-old barn.

On Friday, Michael Lauer, in partnership with Calumet Farm, announced that a season to leading Indiana sire Ready's Image (More Than Ready – Clever Phrase, by Clever Trick), standing at Swifty Farms, will be auctioned off during the Indiana Thoroughbred Owners' and Breeders' Association Annual Banquet. The banquet will be held at Indiana Grand Racing and Casino on Saturday, Jan. 15. All proceeds from the season auction will go to Springcliff Farm.

Anyone interested in bidding on the season to Ready's Image, but cannot attend the ITOBA Banquet, they can contact Michael Lauer with a maximum bid by calling: 502-639-1536

Other fundraising efforts for the farm include efforts on GoFundMe, which looks to reach and surpass its goal of $10,000. Also, custom t-shirts featuring the Springcliff Farm logo and the words “#SpringcliffStrong” are being sold for $20 each, with all proceeds going towards the family. Information on the t-shirt can be found on the Indiana Thoroughbred Alliance website or by ordering online:

The Cagles have been overwhelmed by the response and support from the entire Thoroughbred industry, including farms and owners in Indiana, Kentucky and Florida.
