Airdrie Stud History

The Airdrie Stud of Governor and Mrs. Brereton C. Jones consists of more than 2,500 acres primarily on Old Frankfort Pike, near Midway, Kentucky. Much of this land is part of famed Woodburn Stud, home of the immortal Lexington during his 16-year tenure as America’s leading sire in the 19th century. Woodburn, also the home of five 19th century Kentucky Derby winners, is in fact the birthplace of Kentucky’s Thoroughbred industry.

This gently rolling, mineral-rich land in the heart of North America’s richest limestone/bluegrass region, provides a perfect natural base on which to raise young runners of exceptional quality.

From the turn of the century through the fall of 1972, when Brereton and Libby founded Airdrie Stud, no Thoroughbreds had been raised on this prime land. Since then, over 215 stakes winners have been bred and raised at Airdrie -- an honor roll that includes 24 Grade 1 winners. Just since 2000, Jones-bred runners have earned over $115 million in purse money.

Airdrie’s proven stallions, exciting young sire prospects, a top band of broodmares, excellent land and a staff of dedicated, experienced horsemen combine to assure a bright future indeed.
