“Nice Family Farm”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

This is a good farm to visit, especially during breeding season. They are more of a stallion boutique, and less of a commercial operation like Lanes End and Winstar. That these people care about their horses is obvious. The horses also look really good and have a lot of personality - not overweight and cranky like some of the other stallions we saw. We also got to see a live breeding sessions, which was interesting. The only downside was that the stallion barn was being worked on when we were there and the stallions were therefore spread out all over the farm in pastures and temporary stalls. The meetings with them were very brief. It was very different from Claiborne, who had a stallion manager/groom on hand to introduce us to the horses and let us interact with the friendly ones.

“Wonderful tour”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

A great tour, well worth the cost. We got to see the barns that were so clean you could eat off the floor. They allow you to observe an actual breeding, which other farms do not. We saw Flower Alley mate with a mare who had been vanned in. Would also recommend the tour at Darley, which doesn't have a Trip Advisor sector for reviews. Darley's tours are free. 3 Chimneys charges a nominal $10.

“Fascinating look at a boutique breeding operation.”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

Friendly staff and beautifully manicured grounds. They brought Lewis Michael and Point Given out for us to photograph in the barn attached to the breeding shed. You can't get your photo taken with them when they are out but it's possible to get a picture by their name plate on the stall door. The biggest treat was when they brought Flower Alley outside for us to photograph. His son I'll Have Another has won the Derby and Preakness and will be attempting a Triple Crown win at the Belmont on June 9.
We were allowed to watch Point Given cover a mare named Spanked. We'll be watching in a couple years to see if that foal has a racing career.
Overall an amazing tour and I want to thank the owners for opening their farm to the public.
