Although it was raining, we had a very good tour with Annette. She is very knowledgeable, answered all questions and very personable. Found it fascinating as to what they do with the mucked out stalls. Quite a business in itself!

This is a tour that you must go on. The guide was so good, and shared her knowledge with us about the farm. We were able to pet the horses, and she was very enjoyable to be with. A great time!

Loved this tour! Our tour guide was a very knowledgeable lady and made the tour fun! It is amazing what kind of training the thoroughbreds go through before they race and how many people the owners need to help prepare the horses. Well worth the time.

Had a great tour with Annette today. Our family of 6 was the only group on the tour. We learned a lot and also got to see many of the beautiful horses in action.
