We visited Godolphin at Jonabell, and saw three Kentucky Derby winners, plus some other fantastic stallions, such as Frosted. The staff at Jonabell was very friendly and informative about all the stallions.

Definitely recommend as a stable tour. First class stallions beautifully kept. Mares looked terrific, too. Met Bernadini’s groom who was a groom for Affirmed. He’s worked there 40 years and had wonderful stories. Lots of history.

Visiting the Darley stallion barn to see champions up close was amazing and then to see and visit with the mares and their young foals was super!! My sisters will remember a pretty filly foal "kissing" their faces forever!!
