GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) – A thoroughbred retirement farm in Kentucky that is home to champion horses is having its annual homecoming event this weekend.

Farm tours, live music, auctions, barbecue buffets and more will be featured during the Sunday event in Georgetown.

Tickets are $30 for the general public and $15 for Old Friends members. Children 12 and under are free.

Among the thoroughbreds living at Old Friends are Kentucky Derby and Preakness winners Silver Charm and War Emblem and Belmont Stakes winners Touch Gold and Sarava.
