Winstar Farm News


WinStar Farm is an American Thoroughbred horse breeding and racing farm near Versailles, Kentucky. Formerly known as Prestonwood Farm, it was owned by Houston, Texas oilmen Jack, Art, and J. R. Preston whose better known horses included Da Hoss and Victory Gallop.

In 2000, Kenny Troutt and Bill Casner, both with long-standing interests in horses came together to purchase Prestonwood, adding to its area, and renaming it WinStar Farm. Included in the purchase were the stallions Kris S. and Distorted Humor. Kris S. died in 2002 at the age of 25 after siring five Breeder's Cup winners and three Eclipse Award winners whose combined career earnings were in excess of $50,000,000. He is buried at WinStar, just outside the entrance to the stallion barn.

Trainer W. Elliott Walden is vice president of racing and bloodstock services for WinStar Farm.
