LEXINGTON LANDMARK. Calumet Farm was founded by William Monroe Wright in 1924.

No. 7 Brad Kelley

1,150,000 acres (up 150,000 acres)

Kelley’s Calumet Farm continues its return to glory. Since acquiring it in 2013, the Kentucky native has been burnishing the reputation of the legendary breeding and training facility on the track and in the barn. This year, three contenders in the Run for the Roses wore Calumet’s colors. Although neither Hence nor Patch nor Sonneteer finished in the money, the presence of the trio in the starting gates speaks volumes about Kelley’s commitment to the sport of kings. Earlier this year, Kentucky Derby-winning trainer Todd Pletcher told the Lexington Herald-Leader, “I think Mr. Kelley, as you can see, is putting together a pretty powerful stable. He’s carrying on that Calumet tradition in a big way. It looks to me like it’s only going to get bigger.”
