Take a tour of the stallion complex at Jonabell Farm in Lexington, Kentucky, one of the leading horse farms in the USA. Jonabell is the American headquarters of Sheikh Mohammed’s global Godolphin operation and home to the Darley thoroughbred stallions in the United States.
Tours of Jonabell Farm are booked through Visit Horse Country. The tour begins at the farm office where you will learn about the history of Jonabell Farm as well as the global scope of Godolphin, the international thoroughbred breeding and racing operation founded by Sheikh Mohammed, ruler of Dubai. We’ll then head outside for a walking tour of the stallion complex. Our current roster of stallions includes Kentucky Derby winners Nyquist and Street Sense, Belmont Stakes winner Essential Quality, multiple G1 winners Frosted and Maxfield, and leading sire Medaglia d’Oro. We'll also walk through the breeding shed and visit the gravesite of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed.
We are unable to allow petting or feeding of the stallions 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.
