A Tour of Thoroughbreds


If the majesty of a swift Thoroughbred has ever grasped your attention, stolen your gaze or left you in utter fascination, you’re not alone. Millions of people are swept away by the speed and passion of Thoroughbred racing. While the horses’ drive to run may come from within, these future racehorses are bred and trained at top-notch facilities around the nation.

Tommy Town Thoroughbreds is one such facility, a 365-acre location in Southern California’s Santa Ynez Valley. Fifty employees live on the farm to help raise and train Thoroughbreds. Lay-up and rehabilitation services are also provided to help injured horses successfully return to racing. Specializing in breeding, Tommy Town has a 35-stall foaling barn. The ranch also has several barns, more than 130 stalls, an Equi-Ciser and a seven furlong track.

It’s this type of beginning that starts the journey, and sometimes maintains that journey, for Thoroughbred racing. Tours of Tommy Town Thoroughbreds offer a chance for visitors to get a close-p look at this process. From real starting gates and young horses in training to stallion presentations and a walk through the mare barn, guests can experience Thoroughbred interaction on a new level.
