At our other location in Kentucky, Darby Dan represents the history of Thoroughbred breeding and racing in America like few other farms. The horse farm in Lexington has 750 acres of bluegrass pasture and many barns and breeding facilities. For a century its white-fenced rolling pastures have blended great horses and colorful characters into lasting legends of the Bluegrass.
