Brookmeade Stable was a successful thoroughbred horse racing stable owned by Dodge Automobile heiress and socialite Isabel Dodge Sloane. Sloane first won using the name Brookmeade Stable at the Manly Memorial Steeplechase at Pimlico in 1924.
If 1929, Sloane divorced and expanded her interest in horse racing. She purchased 850 acres (3.4 km2) in Upperville, Virginia, again using the name Brookmeade Stable. Sloane later developed the estate into a breeding farm, Brookmeade Stud, producing several successful race horses, including Sword Dancer. Brookmeade Stable raced several other winning horses, including High Quest and Cavalcade.
Brookmeade's success allowed Sloane to become the first woman to lead the United States in race earning in 1934, with $251,138.
The stables of Brookmeade in Upperville, Virginia now constitute Lazy Lane Farms.
