You might remember that the race raises money for Old Friends, a Thoroughbred Retirement Facility in nearby Georgetown. Old Friends was founded by the former Boston Globe critic Michael Blowen in 2003 and they know care for more than 155 horses whose racing and breeding careers came to an end.
The farm welcomes 20,000 tourists each year and the farm is open for daily tours. You can make reservations by calling (502) 863-1775. You'll see famous (and familiar) faces like the 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.You can learn more about Old Friends here.
