“Interesting and Informative”

Three Chimneys Farm
Ranked #6 of 24 things to do in Versailles
Attraction details
Reviewed April 8, 2012

This is the second time my wife and I have visited Three Chimneys. I scheduled our tour in advance by contacting Three Chimneys directly. There was a $10 charge for the one hour tour, but the money was donated to a very worthy cause. It is a beautiful facility in the middle of horse country. The very professional staff provides wonderful insight into the thoroughbred business, particularly for the uninitiated, like us. Sue, our tour leader, was very pleasant and most informative. This was the first time we were able to observe a breeding session, which we found to be very interesting and were most appreciative of the opportunity. This is a first class operation and a "must see" for anyone wanting to experience the beauty and focus of the area.

The stallions at Three Chimneys are really living the good life. You can tell how happy they are, and how well they're treated, by the condition of the grounds, and barns, and horses themselves. We got to see Big Brown, War Chant, Dynaformer, Red Giant, Exchange Rate, Point Given, and several others. The tour guide is very well-informed, and you can tell she actually knows the horses (and the cat who has never missed a tour). She was great with questions, and altered our tour a little so that we could see a mare being bred.
Great tour, and well worth the drive from Lexington.

Much less two! While we didn't get to get very close to the horses, we were very close, within a few feet. To be able to see Smarty Jones and Big Brown up close is worth the trip alone, not to mention the chance to learn about such an important part of Kentucky history. Definitely worth a trip! Even my nephew enjoyed it!

Very fascinating as they show the operations of a horse farm including how horses are bred! Have taken friends several times there and always a winner even with the kids!
