Barn Owner, Rider & Breeder
Audrie’s passion for horses and competition began at only eight years old in her hometown of Miami, FL. Audrie discovered her drive to work with dangerous horses early on as she saw a lack of compassion and understanding for these blacklisted horse. Even before her 20th birthday, Audrie, had taken dozens of free or unrideable horses to the competition ring slowly making a name for herself. She competed these horses in the Little Wood, WEF, USEF, USDF and US Nationals & Regionals, winning High Points, Year End championships, Regional and Nationals titles. Audrie found developing her own breeding program as a way to give every foal a chance that many of her unruly competition horses never had. After, studying pedigrees, genetics, and the equine markets, Audrie developed a system of genetically selecting stallions and mares for producing an elite athlete that is sane, sound and talented, while also being ahead of the sales and competition markets.

He was also an avid race car driver, airplane pilot and sailor. Mike brings years of business knowledge and ownership to Bocoy Stables along with a diverse resume of lifelong experiences. As father and daughter, Mike and Audrie have a bond that gives them both an opportunity to continuously grow and learn together.

Elena Anthony, is a true example of a fighting spirit, showing that success is measured in how hard you work at it. Elena came to the United States with her family seeking a better life.

Ramon & Angelina Blanco
In Loving Memory
Ramon & Angelina Blanco were more than parents and grandparents they were the pulse that jump started Bocoy to life. Born in Camaguey, Cuba Ramon was a A Valley Forge Military Academy graduate and had a Public Accounting degree from la Universidad de La Habana in Cuba. He met his wife, Angelina, of over 60 years while she worked for his father. While in Cuba, Ramon, directed his father's many successful businesses including Bocoy Rum.
"When we decided to open our own farm there was no question what the name should be. It was just a name, but it felt like we were giving my grandparents it back, something they had painfully lost in Cuba all those years ago."says Audrie.
Like so many Cuban families the Blanco family fled their home and lives to emigrate to Miami, FL in 1961. Ramon and Angelina left Cuba as a wealthy and educated couple and arrived in Miami FL with 3 daughters and no way to support them. However, because of their unwillingness to become victims they worked and persevered till they and their daughters had comfortable lives and could follow their own paths here in the United States. This driving force was undoubtably the foundation that gave The Anthony Family the motivation to reach for larger goals for Bocoy.
Ramon and Angelina without a doubt gave Bocoy their greatest gift, their 100% support and love. They will live on with Bocoy and in the hearts of The Anthony Family.
