Founded in 2016, Breeze Easy has rapidly established itself in thoroughbred racing, breeding and sales and has campaigned graded stakes winners on both sides of the Atlantic and presented top quality offerings at leading weanling and broodmare sales. In just a few years, Breeze Easy horses have visited the winner’s circle at both Royal Ascot and the Breeders’ Cup. Mike Hall maintains an elite band of around 25 mares, among them Shoppers Return – the dam of Imprimis – champions Academic and Paquita Coqueta, grade 1 winner Belle Gallantey, and graded stakes winners Call Pat, Lady Sabelia, Miss Sunset, Selcourt, and Yahilwa, among others at two farms – one in Ocala.

Mike has been involved with horses his entire life. He grew up on a family farm in West Virginia where his love for horses began. Later, Mike became involved in team roping, a passion that led to becoming a co-owner of Classic Rope Company, and subsequently the formation of Equibrand, a group of companies that continue to play a vital role as a supplier to the equine industry. Mike is a successful entrepreneur, owning multiple other businesses, with a primary focus in the oil and gas industry.

He bought his first thoroughbred at Ocala Breeders’ Sales in 2016 and has purchased Florida-breds out of the Ocala Breeders Sales. He also owned Florida-bred Ascot winner Shang Shang Shang. He stands Curlin’s Honor at Pleasant Acres Stallions.
