Hall of Champions Spotlight: Go for Gin

Go for Gin, also known as “Gin,” is a bay Thoroughbred stallion who was born on April 18, 1991 at Pillar Stud, Kentucky. He was bred by Pamela Du Pont, owned by William J. Condren and Joseph M. Cornacchia, and trained by Nicholas P. Zito. Some of his notable wins include the Kentucky Derby, Remsen Stakes, Chief’s Crown Stakes, and Preview Stakes. Some of Gin’s other notable performances include 2nd at the Preakness Stakes, 2nd at the Belmont Stakes, and 2nd at the Fountain of Youth Stakes. Gin has been a Hall of Champions resident since June 2011. Some of his favorite things are to have his gums rubbed after a performance at the Hall of Champions and playing and splashing water out of a bucket with his nose!

#TransformationTuesday! The three foals in the Mounted Police Young Horse Training Academy, Koda, Henry, and Parker, are pictured about a year ago and again this year on the 4th of July! For the past year they have been in training to become a mounted police horse. In the beginning of their training they were introduced to everyday tasks such as grooming, leading, manners and more. Once they have mastered that they will move on to learning groundwork and other situations and obstacles they would encounter as a mounted police horse. For more information about the foals and their training visit http://kyhorsepark.com/about-us/khp-mounted-police/khp-mounted-police-young-horse-training-academy.

Everyone is so nice, and the horses are gorgeous. There is so much to do especially during breyerfest. I live in Ohio, so I'm pretty close, but I want to go back every year. They have Breyer horses, breyerfest, gift shops, restaurants, museums, and much much much more. They even have horseback riding for kids and adults. You go on a trail ride around some of the property, and it's absolutely gorgeous. You'll love it so much.☺️☺️
