Terry, of Domino Stud, dead at 91


Warren B. Terry, a highly successful Lexington businessman who owned Domino Stud in central Kentucky for 18 years, died on Wednesday at a local health-care facility. Terry was 91.

Terry purchased the 380 acres that would become Domino in 1971, about four years after acquiring two other farms in central Kentucky. In 1979, he purchased another 180-acre property that he called Domino Stud No. Two.

Among the stallions who stood at Domino under Terry's ownership were Grey Dawn II, Dewan, Al Hattab, and 1983 Kentucky Derby winner Sunny's Halo. Terry also bred and raced several minor stakes winners.

Terry sold the farm in 1989 to Ken Jones. Earlier this year, William Shively purchased the property and merged it with Dixiana Farm. The Domino property had been part of Dixiana until it was sold off in the 1940s.
