Welcome to Stonestreet Farm! Our three Kentucky farms span a total of 1,800 acres in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass region, and you are invited to visit each of our distinct properties for a unique insight into the lives of our horses. Whether you’re watching foals play at the Nursery, learning about sales preparation at the Yearling farm, or visiting with mares on our Matriarchs & Maidens tour, the pursuit and dedication towards developing quality thoroughbreds remains a constant theme.
Guests will have the opportunity to see horses up close and personal as they walk through the barns as well as enjoying a short driving tour through the property on our dedicated vehicle. Tours are available on a seasonal basis to ensure guests see the individual farms at their times of peak activity. We encourage you to attend all three tours for a full picture of our operation.
Visit the Nursery
Welcome to the Nursery! Available to visit during March, April and May, our broodmare band produces an average of 80 foals a year, and each represents an expression of our unwavering pursuit to cultivate champions. Special attention and care go into the breeding and nurturing of each foal to ensure that they have the best chance of success at the highest level. Our program prides itself on letting horses be horses, giving them ample time to experience the beautiful environment they live in. Foals frolic up and down the rolling hills, strengthening bones and building muscle. Guests will be driven around our beautiful property and have the opportunity to exit the van and walk through the barns to see mares and foals as they enjoy their lunch. No guarantees can be made that any specific horse will be seen on a particular tour – showings are subject to the health and welfare of the animals. For the same reason, we are unable to allow feeding of the horses during tours.

Visit the Yearlings
Come see the industry’s future stars as they take their first classes in racehorse etiquette! Available during June, July and August, last year’s foal crop has moved on from the Nursery, and it’s time for the serious schooling to begin. Our sales preparation curriculum is geared towards getting yearlings into physical and mental shape. Customized nutrition and fitness plans work to whittle away baby fat and leave the sleek muscle of a future racehorse. Rigorous daily grooming and hand walking sessions provide yearlings with the patience and focus needed to block out the sights and sounds of a busy sale. Graduates of our program have amassed 46 graded stakes victories and earnings of over 42 million dollars. Stroll through the barn and see this year’s class as they prepare for the Fasig-Tipton Saratoga Select and Keeneland September Yearling sales.

Visit Matriarchs & Maidens
Visit the mares of our world-class broodmare band in their winter home! Available during September, October and November, they have left their rambunctious foals behind at the Nursery and are relaxing and enjoying time with their friends as they await next year’s breeding season. They are joined by the maidens, or first-time expectant mothers, that have been let down from the track and are ready to move on to their second careers. In addition to the active broodmares is a stellar group of retired mares that are peacefully living out their twilight years grazing on Kentucky bluegrass and basking in the sun.
