The History of Old Friends  A Home for Retired Thoroughbreds
by Rick Capone | Forward by Michael Blowen

Publisher: The History Press 
Publication Date: August 5, 2014

This is the story of the creation of Old Friends, a Thoroughbred retirement farm in Georgetown, Ky., by Michael Blowen, who turned a dream into reality.

Like many before him in the Bluegrass State, Michael Blowen, a former Boston Globe entertainment writer, fell in love with horses, specifically Thoroughbreds. The reality beyond the racetracks, he knew, was that each day a Thoroughbred was in the spotlight, for some of these distinguished athletes, their days were numbered. For that reason, he dreamed of finding a way to give them a dignified retirement after they completed their rigorous racing careers. When he opened the Thoroughbred retirement farm Old Friends in Kentucky in 2003, he never dreamed his idea would grow so big, so fast. Today, Old Friends is home to more than 130 horses, many of them stallions, as well as geldings, mares and one loveable miniature horse named Little Silver Charm. Join journalist and horse lover Rick Capone for the story of Old Friends and the horses that call the arm home.
