OLD ENGLISH RANCHO FEATURED ON HRTV'S "INSIDE INFORMATION" THIS SUNDAY

Arcadia, CA, March 2 -- The Old English Rancho has been synonymous with California racing for nearly 80 years, and HRTV's (R) award-winning
documentary show, "Inside Information: Old English Rancho," will provide an intriguing historical retrospective on the facility this Sunday, March 4 at 8:30 p.m. ET.

The 30-minute show will take a comprehensive look at the rich history surrounding Old English Rancho (OER). From a dedicated vision formed by Ellwood Johnston, and his determination to satisfy his lifelong passion with horses, he established a farm and breeding operation in California -- first in Chino, and later moved to Ontario. While Johnston and partner Ted Tepper unwaveringly followed their blueprint, there were tough, lean times and general uncertainty.

"Inside Information" will chronicle Old English Rancho's acquisition of Fleet Nasrullah, which changed its fortunes and led to its prosperity in the early 1970s. The rollercoaster ride continued, with the untimely death of Johnston, downturn of business in the area, and a relocation of Old English Rancho to Sanger, CA. After a tragedy in 2005, their fortunes took a positive swing a year later when Acclamation was born.

Despite a slow start in his racing career, Acclamation gradually reached his potential in 2010 and 2011, and OER reached its pinnacle, when Acclamation, a horse they bred, and owned in partnership, earned a 2011 Older Male Eclipse Award, after a brilliant season for trainer Don Warren. He was also recognized as Cal-bred Horse of the Year for 2011.

Produced by Steve Scheidler, numerous interviews were conducted with the Johnston family, as well as Mary Fleming Simon, the Eclipse Award-winning author of The History of the Thoroughbred in California.
