Robertson Partners with Wes Melcher and Double Infinity Ranch on Namesake Racehorse
WEST MONROE, La. (Feb. 7, 2014) – Television’s favorite uncle, “Uncle” Si Robertson of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, alongside Ashley Howard Nelson (Korie Robertson’s sister), is taking the reins and launching a new venture with Wes Melcher, owner of Double Infinity Ranch. Together they have partnered in ownership of a Louisiana-bred Thoroughbred filly that will be named “Sithechristmas elf.” The two-year-old racehorse is currently being trained at Double Infinity Ranch in Sulphur Springs, Texas and is slated to make her debut in summer 2014.
With just three years of experience in the Thoroughbred racing industry, Wes Melcher has already had an enormous amount of success. He campaigned Texas Champion Two-Year-Old Horse of the Year “Worldventurer” and is the owner of 2014 Kentucky Derby hopeful, “Louies Flower” – a horse currently training for the Southwest Stakes on Feb.17 at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Melcher recently purchased a large commercial horse operation in Sulphur Springs and has developed it into a top-notch Thoroughbred facility, complete with a racetrack, under the Double Infinity Ranch banner.
Si Robertson has parlayed his Duck Dynasty fame into many commercial endorsements and projects and is excited to be involved with this sport, especially in his home state of Louisiana. He is expected to make several appearances to support Double Infinity Ranch and “Sithechristmas elf” in 2014.
