About Old Friends
Founded in 2003 by former Boston Globe film critic Michael Blowen, Old Friends is a Thoroughbred Retirement Facility in Georgetown, KY that now cares for more than 155 horses whose racing and breeding careers came to an end. A "living history museum of horse racing", the farm attracts nearly 20,000 tourists annually that get up close and personal with such stars of the turf as 1997 Kentucky Derby winner Silver Charm, three-time Santa Anita Handicap victor Game on Dude, Breeders' Cup Sprint Champion Gulch and Breeders' Cup Classic winner Alphabet Soup. By promoting these one-time celebrated horses through a campaign of education and tourism, Old Friends aims to draw attention to the need for widespread Thoroughbred aftercare. The farm is open to the public for tours daily. Reservations are required. Please call (502) 863-1775.
