Why the Horse?

Since 2004, Turn Services has upheld a tradition of naming vessels after Triple Crown winners. Why? Because there have been only 13 horses that have ever accomplished this tremendous achievement. The first was Sir Barton in 1919, and most recently, Justify, who captured the Triple Crown in 2018. Each champion had to overcome obstacles, ranging from battling nagging injuries to beating fierce opponents and enduring the grueling schedule of the Triple Crown, winning the hearts and minds of Americans throughout the process.

Now that our company has grown to the point where our number of vessels has exceeded the number of Triple Crown winners, we have begun to name our boats after other equine champions. We always choose horses that are proven winners and show great heart. And while our company plans to continue expanding, we are committed to growing smartly – seeking strategic opportunities for growth that will benefit our customers.

At Turn Services, we admire the qualities that these horses have shown: strength, focus, determination, and the ability to push beyond one’s perceived limits and achieve high performance.

We believe that all of these qualities are admirable in a horse, a person, and a great company.
