National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame presents special tour of Edition Farm on Sept. 8

The National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame and the New York Thoroughbred Breeding and Development Fund will present a special tour of Edition Farm in Hyde Park, N.Y., on Saturday, Sept. 8. Round-trip transportation to and from the Museum and lunch will be provided along with a guided tour of one of New York’s top thoroughbred farms. Space is limited and reservations are required. This special event costs $60 for Museum members and $70 for non-members. The bus will depart from the Museum at 9 a.m.

 

Owned and operated by Vivien G. Malloy, Edition Farm was established in 1971 as a small operation in Purchase, N.Y. In 1981, the farm bought its first broodmare, which in turn produced the farm’s first racehorse in 1984. With the need for more land to suit the growing operation, the current Edition Farm was acquired in 1986, located in Hyde Park, Dutchess County.

 

Edition Farm’s breeding program has achieved national and international success with stakes winners in America, Japan, Barbados and Turkey, as well as two New York Breeder Awards: the 2006 Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) Breeder of the Year Award and the 2010 New York Thoroughbred Breeders (NYTB) Breeder of the Year.

 

Tour participants will receive a free pass to visit the Museum at their convenience. Reservations are required for this event and space is limited. Please call the Museum’s tour line at (518) 584-0400 ext. 120 to reserve your spot.
