Good Lord wins the Don Bernhardt Stakes at Ellis Park, one of his 84 career races.

Old Friends has added Good Lord and Balance of Power to its roster of horses at Kentucky Downs, the south-central Kentucky track where a third branch of the Thoroughbred retirement farm was opened in 2015.

Good Lord, 9, earned $803,305 in a remarkable 84-race career, all for trainer Forrest Kaelin. “It was time to give him a little rest,” said Kaelin. “But he was still 100 percent sound. … A nice little horse. A tough bird, I’ll tell you.”

Old Friends now has eight horses at Kentucky Downs and a total of about 100 in its care, most of them at the flagship facility in Georgetown, Ky.
