Walmac Farm selling its smaller property

Email

Walmac Farm will consolidate its operations from two locations to one, putting its 248-acre property on Paris Pike between Paris and Lexington, Ky., up for sale.

Opened in 1976 by John T.L. Jones Jr., the Paris Pike location houses Walmac Farm’s stallion operation, which has been home to more than 100 stallions, including Nureyev, Miswaki, Alleged, Lord At War, Shecky Greene, Salt Lake, Songandaprayer, and Phone Trick. Walmac Farm currently stands Successful Appeal and Mr. Sidney.

Once the property is sold, Walmac Farm will move all operations to its 625-acre breeding facility on Elizabeth Station Road on the Fayette/Bourbon County line, which it has owned since 1987.

The Paris Pike property was part of a larger property once owned by Ben Ali Haggin that encompassed the modern-day Spendthrift, Gainesway, Elmendorf, and Walmac farms, and where Haggin began raising Thoroughbreds in 1897.

Justice Real Estate will handle the listing.
