The Old Friends/Darley Stud Tour combines the experiences of the non-profit equine retirement facility Old Friends, where visitors can see Secretariat’s most accomplished living son Tinners Way as well as Kentucky Derby winners Silver Charm and War Emblem, with the illustrious Darley Stud, home to many acclaimed stallions including Bernardini, Medaglia D’oro, and Kentucky Derby winners Animal Kingdom and Street Sense.

The gorgeous thoroughbred breeding facility is based at the historic Jonabell farm founded in 1946 in the heart of the Bluegrass. With its distinctive international flair, this heralded farm is home to the acclaimed stallions Holy Bull, Quiet American, Elusive Quality, and Kentucky Derby winner Street Sense.
