The descendants of HENRY SINGLETON (1916—1999) oversee Singleton Ranches, which the co-founder of Teledyne Inc. launched in 1986. That was the year the electrical engineer purchased the 81,000-acre San Cristobal Ranch in New Mexico’s historic Galisteo Basin. Singleton subsequently expanded his landholdings by acquiring numerous Spanish land grants, primarily in New Mexico but also in California. The many honors that have been earned and bestowed upon Singleton Ranches include being recognized by the American Quarter Horse Association (AQHA) with its prestigious Best Remuda Award in 2012. Singleton stallions work all aspects of the cattle operation and are bred to ranch mares during the breeding season.
