Old Friends offers virtual tours of its retirees


GEORGETOWN, Ky. (WTVQ) – With its facility closed for in-person tours because of the coronavirus, Old Friends, the thoroughbred retirement facility in Kentucky, has debuted the first in a series of virtual farm tours.

The videos, called ‘Monday Mornings with Michael,’ will enable fans to continue to access the non-profit organization’s 100-plus equine retirees at its Georgetown location during the COVID-19 quarantine.
