Old Friends, KY is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to providing a safe haven and permanent retirement to Thoroughbreds whose racing and breeding careers have come to an end. Our farms have become racing’s living history museums- rural Halls of Fame, presented daily to tourists. Our open-door policy has reunited these great athletes with their fans and has contributed to public education on the need for industry reforms when it comes to the life-long care of racehorses. Because even racing’s biggest stars can have perilous fates.
