Overview

Come and visit Ashford Stud, international breeding giant Coolmore’s home in the Blue Grass. Coolmore also have large operations in Ireland and Australia, making us one of the biggest bloodstock players globally. Behind Ashford’s historic stone walls you will find some of the most sought-after horseflesh in the world as well as a storied history. Our iconic stallion barns are home to Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup Classic hero AMERICAN PHAROAH along with the likes of Kentucky Derby winner FUSAICHI PEGASUS and record breaking freshman sire UNCLE MO. Come and see why Coolmore’s farms around the world have earned the moniker of the Home of Champions. We do our best to let fans see American Pharoah and our other champions, however, no guarantees can be made for any particular tour - showings are pending the health and welfare of the animals. For the same reason, we're unable to allow feeding of the horses during tours. No pets are allowed on property.

You don't know anything about thoroughbred horses and their breeding until you visit Ashford Stud. A wonderful tour explains the business and you get to "meet" some of the most magnificent horses you'll see anywhere. This is where American Pharaoh, the Triple Crown winner, lives!...More

Coolmore is a must see. Very reasonably priced. Make sure American Pharoah is there when you go. He is quite a handsome boy and doesn't care that he is so special. The barns and grounds were spectacular. Highly recommend this for your bucket list.

Such a beautiful serene farm, a great place for the stallions that live there. You could see how well loved the horses were by the care given to them and the pride with which they are presented. American Pharoah knows he is special and enjoys...More

Book ahead for the once daily tour at 3pm of the stallion barns and breeding shed. Although there is no guarantee at any stud farm that one will see a particular stallion, we all were hoping to at least get a glimpse of Triple Crown...More

The property alone is very impressive---the large trees surrounding the lanes are fabulous. The stone buildings awesome. Then there's the horses. American Pharoah, simply breathtakingly handsome stallion!! I have a Barbara Livingston framed photo of him, and in person he's gorgeous with an even temperament...More

I have been on this tour several times, and each time has been fantastic. This farm is rich in history, and who doesn't love seeing the last Triple Crown winner!!!
