Lane's End Farm

Lane's End Farm is a thoroughbred race horse breeding farm in Versailles, Kentucky established in 1979. The original land was part of Bosque Bonita Farm which means beautiful woods and was originally owned by Abraham Buford, a Confederate Army General. The land was later bought by leading horseman, John H. Morris.

Leamington, sire of Aristides, winner of the first Kentucky Derby, stood at stud at Bosque Bonita Farm in 1866.

In 1875, General George Custer came to Bosque Bonita Farm to buy cavalry remounts before the Battle of Little Big Horn.

Present day

The farm is currently owned by the Farish family.

The farm has been home to a number of famous horses including 1987 Belmont Stakes winner Bet Twice, 1999 Preakness Stakes winner Charismatic, 1999 Belmont Stakes winner Lemon Drop Kid, Law Society, 1992 Belmont Stakes winner A. P. Indy, 1990 Preakness Stakes winner Summer Squall, 2003 Canadian Triple Crown winner Wando, and 2006 U.S. Champion 3-Yr-Old Filly Wait A While. Curlin, the 2007 Preakness and Breeders' Cup Classic winner, U.S. Horse of the Year in 2007 and 2008, and the leading money-winner in North American Thoroughbred racing history, now stands as a stallion at Lane's End.

As of 2009, the current stallion roster is:

  • After Market
  • Belong to Me
  • City Zip
  • Dixie Union
  • Mingun
  • Stephen Got Even

Lane's End Farm has another stallion division in Texas and just added top sprinter Too Much Bling to their stallion roster in 2007.

Upon the retirement of 2007 2yr. old champion War Pass, he will then join the list of stallions at Lanes End.
