Historic Indiana Farm Destroyed by Fire

Springcliff Farm, one of Indiana’s leading Thoroughbred foaling farms located in Martinsville, Indiana, was destroyed by a fire that broke earlier this morning. Multiple agencies responded to the fire and it was contained after a couple of hours.

Owners Christine and Vince Cagle have spent the morning contacting broodmare owners to alert to their loss as well as working with surrounding farms and veterinarian agencies to make arrangements for surviving horses. A final count of horses perished and those injured has not been made as of press time.

As of press time, a cause has not been confirmed. South Central Indiana experienced high winds and dropping temperatures throughout the past couple of days.

Updates regarding the fire will be made as more information is discovered. For now, the family asks for privacy and respect for the horses, owners and everyone involved.
