The Oak Tree Ranch, South of Bandera, Texas
Since 1992 the Stewart family has owned this 220-acre ranch.
Don and Frannie raised and sold Thoroughbred and Quarter Horses and were
respected members of the Texas and American Quarter Horse Association.
Although they mostly bred and sold, one gray filly, disregarded by potential buyers and other breeders,
became special to Frannie and to everyone’s surprise but Frannie, her Fightin’ Jane turned out to be a very successful racer at
Ruidosa Downs. Frannie and her horse were even featured in Quarter Racing Journal after a series of successful wins.
The Oak Tree Ranch is 6 miles Southeast of Bandera and 2 miles West of Pipe Creek
and has about a mile of fenced, native grass frontage on Highway 16.
