For the true horse lover. Home of many famous race horses. Seattle Slew is buried here. Beautiful grounds. Not a lot to do for small kids.

Three Chimneys exceeded my expectations. This was my first trip to Kentucky and I will be back! The farm is absolutely beautiful! Sue was so welcoming and knowledgeable.

You can get an idea about great horses in the past. Also you can see how the horses are bread and look after. Some of the retired ex champions can be seen in retirement. If you are a follower of horse racing you will enjoy a lot.

a waste of time and money. They brought one horse out for us to view and there were 4 others in stalls, but most of the tour was a description of the breeding process. If you want to see horses and touch and feed them carrots, go to Old Friends or Our Mims instead.

The horses were beautiful but there was no one there to tell about them or really give you a tour of the entire place . We were limited to walk around a very Small area and only one barn had horses to see.

We toured the stud facilities during a derby week open house. They brought the studs out of their stalls one by one for ample photography time. Seattle Slew's grave as well as others are on this beautifully manicured part of the property. That said, don't expect to see mares and foals as they are on another part of the farm... More

I learned a lot and I have been around horses for years. Seeing a live breeding was amazing! Kate our tour guide was the best!

This thoroughbred farm is right in the heart of Kentucky TB country. If you wish to tour the Bluegrass farms, don't miss this one! The staff on the farm are very welcoming and friendly to visitors. This is the only farm I know of that has a woman managing Breeding Shed.

This was the highlight of my wife's tour to Lexington. Everything with this tour was excellent. The facility is outstanding, Sue the tour guide very friendly and knowledgeable, and many impressive stallions to view. My wife fell in love with Big Brown when he was racing and was totally in awe when she first stood face to face with him... More
