Position: Trainer
Resides: Carencro 


My name is Don Stemmans and my family and I have been involved in the Horse Racing Business for quite a long time. I am a trainer of both Thoroughbreds and Quarter Horses and operate Traders Rest Farm, Inc. a full service breeding, training and boarding facility in Scott LA. Currently I own the stallion Gentlemen (ARG) and am the Syndicate Manager for Wire Me Collect. I was the starter at Evangeline Downs in Carencro and served on the board of the Louisiana Thoroughbred Breeders Association for over 20 years. I also operate Stemmans Horse Supply in Carencro LA and serve customers at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas and the Fairgrounds in New Orleans. We have a “web store” also at Each year Stemmans Inc. – Horse Sale administers the John Franks Memorial Two Year Old in Training Sale at Evangeline Downs in Opelousas LA in March. I look forward to serving you on the Louisiana H.B.P.A. Board of Directors and would greatly appreciate your vote and support.
