Horse racing

As a young man, Paul Reddam became interested in the harness races held at Windsor Raceway that eventually led to his involvement as an owner while working as a university professor in Los Angeles. He currently has Standardbred horses competing at Windsor Raceway and at Cal Expo in Sacramento, California. In 1988 he acquired his first Thoroughbred and has expanded his involvement to a current forty-horse racing stable plus twenty broodmares for his own breeding operations through arrangements with breeding farms in California and Kentucky.

Reddam's greatest successes to date is a win with 75%-owned Wilko in the 2004 Breeders' Cup Juvenile and with Red Rocks in the 2006 Breeders' Cup Turf. His Thoroughbred racing stable is led by head trainer Doug O'Neill, with several horses being conditioned by Craig Dollase. In early 2007, the stable included three colts with the credentials to compete in the Kentucky Derby. However, Notional is out with an injury but Great Hunter and Liquidity are scheduled to run in the May 5th event.
