LeVan Stables was started by Louie’s Father Herb LeVan in 1970 when he bought an Indiana Bred colt named People’s Choice. According to Herb, he’s the one that started it all. Herb, Louie and Vic all drove Peoples Choice throughout his career and all obtained their “A” Driver’s license behind him in the sulky. Since then, we’ve learned a lot and have been blessed to have our share of nice horses to work with such as, Anitas Chance, Ohio Fair, Caramel Dumpling and a handful of others along the way. Currently, Herb takes the coming two and three year old colts and fillies to Sunshine Raceway in Dade City, FL for the winter months to get a jump start on training. Throughout the year we race in the Ohio Fair circuits, as well as the Pari- Mutual tracks throughout the state of Ohio. If you see us at the races, be sure to stop and say hello!

“We’ve been blessed to have had the horses we’ve had over the years, and build the relationships we did. I’ve always liked horses, but I really enjoy the nice people that make our industry what it is today.” Herb LeVan - Trainer
