In addition, Lancaster Ranch has dispersed of its interest in Desire a lil Pepto to Melinda Gamot in Palm Beach, Florida. Reagan Lancaster was happy that "Woody" or Desire a lil Pepto got such a great home in Florida. Woody generated over $250,000 dollars in winnings and served the Lancaster Ranch well as an example of one of its best horses. Lancaster believed he was the best non-pro horse in the country, but did not have time to haul him around the world due to family commitments. Reagan Lancaster said, "I am so happy that Woody will get to be shown to show off his amazing ability.”

Lancaster Ranch has a long-standing relationship with L & H cutting horses of Murchinson, Texas, and plans to continue raising and training horses until they are ready for Lee Francois to ride. Reagan Lancaster stated, "Lee Francois has had tremendous success with our horses in the winner circle and will continue to ride our best stock. Our plan is to work closely together to select the right horses for our program with Lee all through the process." With such a strong team and a promising crop of babies from Smoking Aces, Lancaster Ranch is sure to continue making waves in the cutting horse industry.
