A farm is comprised of three things: Good soil, good horses and good people, and WinStar is fortunate to have all three.
First, the acreage that comprises WinStar Farm is rich with nutrients. Second, with our stallions, broodmares, foals, yearlings and racing stable, we continue to build on an operation that is part of the upper echelon of the Thoroughbred industry. And last, but not least, are the people who look after the day-to-day business and long-term vision for WinStar Farm – WinStar has some of the best in the business.
Today WinStar Farm is comprised of over 2,400 acres, including the original 450-acre tract of land, once known as Silver Pond Farm. Settled in the 1700's by the Williams of Tidewater Virginia, the Silver Pond property remained in the family for over 150 years. Today the original farmhouse, smokehouse, pond, bank barn and Osage orange allee on Pisgah Pike are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the acreage includes land from the Olsen, Johnson and Kinkead farms."
