An Old Kentucky Home

At dawn's first light a newborn foal puts wobbly feet onto unfamiliar ground at Claiborne Farm as its mother looks on. Once foals learn to walk, they'll move from a half-acre nursery-ward paddock into larger pastures, where they have big shoes to fill. Some of the world's fastest Thoroughbreds—like Seabiscuit and Secretariat—lived at Claiborne, one of the oldest and largest horse farms in the Bluegrass region.
