Howard Appel and
his sister, Debbie Appel,
owners of Surfside Stables, LLC
We share a lifelong passion for Thoroughbred horse racing. Growing up near Del Mar Race Track, we spent every summer with family and friends at the track enjoying racing and the horses. It was a natural progression for us to become owners. In June 2018, we started Surfside Stables, LLC, the name paying homage to our hometown roots. We purchased our first horse, Oceanic, at the 2018 Keeneland September Yearling Sale and, by spring 2020, have a stable with five horses and a mare who is in foal. We love the sport and feel fortunate to be part of it as owners.
