Tours at Jonabell Farm

Take a tour of Jonabell Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, one of the leading horse farms in the USA. It is the American headquarters of Sheikh Mohammed’s global Godolphin operation and home to the Darley thoroughbred stallions in the United States.

The tour will begin at the farm office where you will learn about the history of Jonabell Farm as well as the scope of Godolphin, the international thoroughbred breeding and racing operation founded by Sheikh Mohammed, ruler of Dubai. We’ll then head outside to see the stallions, including Kentucky Derby winners Nyquist and Street Sense, multiple G1 winner Frosted, and leading sires Medaglia d’Oro and Bernardini.

Next we will walk through the breeding shed and visit the grave of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed before we climb aboard our electric shuttle for a scenic drive through the rest of the farm. The tour lasts around 90 minutes.

We are unable to allow petting or feeding of the horses during the tour. Also please note that Frosted travels to Australia each fall for the southern hemisphere breeding season and will not be present during tours from July to December.
