Calumet Farm

William Monroe Wright, successful entrepreneur and owner of Calumet Baking Powder, established Calumet on a small Lexington Kentucky farm. He initially developed the farm to breed and race Standardbred horses. After Wright’s son Warren took over the farm in 1932 following William’s death, he began moving the business toward Thoroughbred racing.
