3395 Paris Pike
This farm was organized and began stallion operations at the property known as Walmac Farm in 1976, founded and managed by John T. L. Jones, Jr. The property on which the farm resides is on Paris Pike - the road linking Lexington with Paris - about six miles from the Lexington city center. The property was originally part of a 5,000 +/- acre property owned by Ben Ali Haggin (whose operations included the Homestake Gold Mine and the Anaconda Copper Mine), and he used the nursery for raising horses beginning in 1897.
The farm has a 50+ year history of owning and managing the breeding careers of commercial thoroughbred stallions which have had stud careers in the United States, Ireland, England, France, Australia, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil - amongst others. The farm has stood over 100 stallions and some of the world's leading sires and champion racehorses of the last half century under the oversight of the Jones family, including Nureyev, Miswaki, Alleged, Bering, Bellypha, Songandaprayer, Successful Appeal, Salt Lake, Arctic Tern, Phone Trick, Lord At War, Shecky Greene, Favorite Trick, and Saratoga Six.
The property is comprised of an extensive number of pastures and buildings on its 248 acres including a stallion complex with the capacity to board and breed approximately 20 stallions; approximately 50 stalls contained in three barns for mares, foals, and yearlings; manager's residence; guest cottage; five employee houses; large greenhouse; and circa 1804 estate residence with large, private grounds.
