Thoroughbred retirement farm offering virtual tours

March 31, 2020 - 11:20 PM

GEORGETOWN, Ky. - A popular thoroughbred retirement farm in Kentucky is reaching out to its supporters through virtual farm tours that showcase its equine retirees.

Old Friends debuted the virtual tours on Monday.

The series is called “Monday Mornings with Michael” and is hosted by Old Friends founder Michael Blowen. Each week, he will offer short visits with a few equine residents of the Georgetown farm.

The farm says its virtual tours will be posted on Old Friends' social media platforms on Monday mornings. The tours will enable fans to continue having access to the farm's retirees during the coronavirus outbreak.

The first video showcases Old Friends' oldest retirees — multiple stakes winner Dinard, who is 32, and one-time claimer Archie's Echo, who is 31.

There's no charge for viewing the video, but donations are welcome and can be made on Facebook.
