Mike Gill, the leading owner of thoroughbreds in the country, said yesterday he plans on dispersing his 300 horses over the next two years and getting out of the horse business. With more than 100 horses stabled at Laurel Park and the Bowie Training Center, Gill said the problems that have dogged him in recent months have taken the fun out of winning races. Delaware Park has prohibited him from racing horses there. Gill leads the country's owners in wins and recently broke the record for most wins at Gulfstream Park in South Florida.
