Puslinch, Ontario’s Classy Lane Training Centre has officially flipped the page to a new chapter in its history. Barb Millier has spoken with Trot Insider and has confirmed that Classy Lane has been sold to new owners that are looking forward to upholding the legacy of the highly regarded Standardbred facility.
Millier told Trot Insider that there had been many tire kickers since Classy Lane went up for sale roughly four years ago, but things got serious last week — Monday, July 27, to be exact — when lawyers stated that a deal appeared to be imminent. The sale of Classy Lane ended up going firm this past Friday (July 31).
As part of the transition process, Barb and Jamie Millier will be remaining with Classy Lane to help for an undetermined amount of time. Barb told Trot Insider that they usually head down to Florida in late October, but with the sale, transition, and unknown travel landscape due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is hard to know when — or if — they will be headed stateside when the season changes in the fall.
