NEW BOOK!  CELEBRATING OLD FRIENDS BY RICK CAPONE 

In his follow-up to History of Old Friends, author Rick Capone revisits the unforgettable history of this horse retirement home and tells the stories of some of the farm's greatest horses, including Kentucky Derby winners Silver Charm, War Emblem and Charismatic, whose time on the farm was way too short.   Included are other wonderful horses, such as Genuine Reward, Little Mike, Touch Gold and Sarava to name just a few. In addition he also tells the story of how King Congee came to live at Old Friends at Cabin Creek in New York, and of Thornfield who now calls Old Friends at Kentucky Downs home.     pre-order by clicking here
