Fascinating tour, fascinating world. Chris is a most excellent tour guide with a Gaelic accent to die for. You see working stables, grounds, the stud facility, and even the cemetery for world renowned stallions. Come and see history!

We booked this tour to see triple crown horse American Pharoah. It’s was so great to see him & be up close for a picture. Seeing all the other stations is also a real treat. The property is just beautiful.
