Create an itinerary including Three Chimneys Farm
Three Chimneys Farm is an American Thoroughbred race horse breeding farm in Midway, Kentucky established in 1972 by Mr. & Mrs. Robert N. Clay. Three Chimneys has been home to a number of famous horses including U.S. Triple Crown champion Seattle Slew, U.S. Filly Triple Crown champion Chris Evert, as well as Silver Charm, Chief's Crown, Genuine Risk, Point Given, Slew o' Gold, Capote, Smarty Jones, and Big Brown.

In 2012, the Three Chimneys stallion roster includes Rahy, Point Given, Yes It's True, Flower Alley, Good Reward, Sky Mesa, War Chant, and Big Brown. Flower Alley sired the 2012 Kentucky Derby Winner and Preakness Stakes winner, I'll Have Another.

In April 2008, The Kentucky region of the Make-A-Wish Foundation and Three Chimneys Farm teamed up to grant a young boy's wish of meeting Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner Smarty Jones. His experience was chronicled June 30 during SportsCenter's "My Wish" series on ESPN. Nine-year-old Patrick Munro of Greenlawn, N.Y. is one of five kids from the Make-A-Wish Foundation whose sports-related wish was highlighted on the SportsCenter series. Patrick, who suffers from hydrocephalus and, as a result, is blind and hearing impaired, spent several days in Central Kentucky in April. On the first day of his visit, Munro and his family were invited to Three Chimneys Farm to fulfill the boy's wish to meet Smarty Jones.

  • Tia, our tour guide, was the best - informative, funny, and very knowledgeable. The facility is beautiful, and the horses were majestic. A tremendous experience.

  • Of all the Breeding Sheds in Central Kentucky! This is one of the happiest most accommodating anyone could breed a mare or visit! Sandy Hatfield and her crew are spectacular!
  • I was last at Three Chimneys when Seattle Slew stood there. It was fun to be back and our tour guide Tia, was fabulous. We were able to see 2 stallions with one being the famous Gun Runner. So much goes into running a successful horse farm and Three Chimneys has continued to do so. Many famous horses have stood there over the years.
