Calumet Farm

Owner

Calumet Farm, based in Lexington, Kentucky, was established in 1924.  The farm is most notable for its two triple crown winners - Whirlaway and Citation - and eight Kentucky Derby winners.  In addition, the farm has bred and/or raced five horses recognized as "Horse of the Year".  Brad Kelley became the farm's operator in May 2012, and almost immediately celebrated a Preakness win with his colt, Oxbow, also a Derby contender.  Kelley was born and raised in Bowling Green, Kentucky and found much success following his teenage role as the secretary of his high school's Future Farmers of America club.  Kelley pursued a career in manufacturing and land investment, and he  is also very active in environmental and wildlife conservation.  Kelley is recognized as the 4th largest landowner in the United States.
