Get a bird’s-eye view of the exquisite Jonabell Farm of Kentucky, home to the Darley stallions of America!
Godolphin at Jonabell Farm, home of the Darley stallions, is one of several international racing and breeding branches owned by Sheikh Mohammed of the UAE and Dubai. As the Sheikh’s passion and hobby, his farms are spared no expense, and Jonabell is a jewel of a breeding farm tucked into the hills around Lexington, Kentucky. From firsthand experience, it’s definitely worth a visit.
But if you can’t hop in the car and roll down to Kentucky this weekend, we’ve got the next best thing — a unique drone-cam view of the farm, with cameo appearances from Frosted as well as what could be the next generation of champions:
Darley breeds some of the greatest racehorses in the world, with the iconic Godolphin blue silks capping many a stakes winner on multiple continents. As the Sheikh does not sell many of his horses, most of these Thoroughbreds will retire for Godolphin, and there’s actually a waiting list of interested second-career homes ready to transition those horses to second careers. Any horses who can’t go into a second career as a sporthorse get to live at Darley for the rest of their days.
