Cedar Run Farm is owned by Randy Patterson and operated by his daughter Sara.
In 1953, Randy was one week old when his mom took him to Anthony Downs, not far from their home in Anthony, Kansas. He never missed a meet from 1953 to 2009. However, Patterson didn't buy his first horse until 1985. A chance meeting in a parking lot with a fellow he knew from previous cattle dealings asked him if he wanted in on a deal to claim a horse at Ak-Sar-Ben. Patterson quickly answered "YES!" The horse they claimed for $11,500 quickly made them $20,000. Wondering where this game had been all his life, Randy was hooked! But, he soon began experiencing the ups and downs of the horse race business.
On November 30, 2013, Randy claimed Moonshine Mullin. A six-year old gelding, for $40,000. Moonshine Mullin took Patterson to heights he never imagined. After five straight victories, Randy Patterson was in a position to fulfill a dream he and his daughter had shared for a long time. He purchased a farm, and Cedar Run Farm was born. Sara, who at the time was head of operations for a landfill and was contemplating another job offer which involved a move that neither she nor her father desired, was ready to take on the responsibility for the day to day operations of the farm. Since her dream had always been to run a farm, father and daughter embarked on this new journey.
