Gil and Marilyn Campbell
n nearly forty years in the business, Gil and Marilyn Campbell have built a formidable Thoroughbred operation. Centering their equine pursuits at their Stonehedge Farm South near Williston, Florida, the spouses have boosted the Sunshine State’s Thoroughbred presence in the industry.
Their current star is Well Defined, a homebred who annexed the February 9 Sam F. Davis Stakes (G3) at Tampa Bay Downs. This win revived Kentucky Derby (G1) dreams for the Campbells, first sparked after capturing last fall’s FTBOA Florida Sire In Reality Stakes. Marilyn Campbell noted, “We did go to the [Sentient Jet] Breeders’ Cup [Juvenile, (G1)] with him and were very disappointed in the results, but he does like to have things his own way and he had some issues coming out of the gate at the Breeders’ Cup. But after the Sam Davis, we’ve got hopes again.”
