TRF Sanctuary Farm at Chestnut Hall

About the Farm

Established in April 2021, the TRF Sanctuary Farm at Chestnut Hall has been created with the specific intention of introducing the Louisville community, neighbors from across the Commonwealth of Kentucky and visitors around the world to the beauty and magic of Thoroughbred horses. This beautiful 25 acre farm in Prospect, KY will serve as the “forever home” for 10 retired Thoroughbred racehorses from the national herd of the Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation.

The horses will serve as Ambassadors for Thoroughbred aftercare to educate racing fans and the community at large about these equine athletes and the importance of providing a “soft landing” for each of them to transition to the next chapter of their long lives when their racing careers are done. Throughout the year, the TRF will welcome visitors to Chestnut Hall for tours and special events to meet the horses and learn about the lives of a Thoroughbred racehorses and the many gifts they bring to the communities where they live.

Important Note: The TRF Sanctuary Farm at Chestnut Hall is not open to the public. Visitors are welcome by private appointment only, book your visit today through Visit Horse Country.
