Horse Racing's Living History Museum

Old Friends provides a dignified retirement to Thoroughbreds whose racing and breeding careers have come to an end. By promoting these one-time celebrated horses through a campaign of education and tourism, we hope to raise awareness of  all equines in need.   Learn more about us here.

THE ART OF OLD FRIENDS

This exceptional collection of paintings, drawings, and pencil sketches has been a long labor of love for Old Friends artist-in-residence Dagmar Galleithner-Steiner. Including Kentucky Derby winners Silver Charm and Charismatic, the cover boy - Game On Dude, Horse of the Year Black Tie Affair, and Eclipse winners Sunshine Forever and Hidden Lake. Other sketches depict the farm, its people, horses, and other pets-in- residence, like Buddy the cat.  How to order
