A one of a kind horse farm tour you won’t want to miss! The professionally guided tour at Darby Dan begins in the Manor House, an antebellum mansion built it 1828. The Trophy Room houses a unique display of awards crossing multiple decades and sports including trophies from all three Triple Crown Races, the Epsom Derby, the World Series, the last trophy won by Swaps (the1955 Kentucky Derby Winner) as well as Roberto Clemente memorabilia. Next to the trophy room is Col. Bradley’s office. An antique desk and chairs furnish the space that is highlighted by picture windows offering a panoramic view of the rolling Kentucky countryside. One can almost envision the Colonel himself gazing out at his estate from this room. As you move to the farms cemetery, movie buffs may recognize the farm’s green-trimmed barns from the movie “Secretariat” -several of the scenes were shot on the farm. A statue of Black Toney (sire of Black Gold) is the centerpiece of the farms cemetery, a picturesque stop included on the tour. The tour will end in the stallion complex with a stallion show and a visit to the breeding shed. You will have the opportunity to see the magnificent athletes up close and learn of the breeding process of the Thoroughbreds.
