Sergio de Sousa

Sergio de Sousa participated on the winning team last year – Farm/Racing Managers.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Sergio came to the USA in 1987. He worked at Margaux Stud for 18 months then traveled to France, Ireland, England, Italy and New Zealand working on various stud farms before returning to the USA.

Today, he is Manager/Partner of Hidden Brook farm in Paris, Kentucky.

Sergio always rode horses in his native Brazil and broke yearlings while in the USA and other countries, but only started showing horses a few years ago, mostly in the Take 2 classes. He is better known as the father of Isabela de Sousa (three-time winner of the Retired Racehorse Project Show jumping Division), Nathalie de Sousa (Jeopardy /Volleyball Queen) and husband of Dr. Karen Wolfsdorf  (The Repro-Vet ).

“Hidden Brook Farm and our family are big supporters of racehorse aftercare programs, and I have always ridden Thoroughbreds from a young age
until today. I am excited to participate in the Real Rider Cup again this year. It was a fantastic event to take part in last year, and we are very grateful for the financial support from our clients.”
