Sunny Acres Farm

Sunny Acres Farm is a thoroughbred breeding farm in Prospect, KY - only a short drive from Churchill Downs. This farm is representative of the small scale private breeders that are as important to the racing industry as the huge breeding operations of Lexington.

At Sunny Acres, a few foals are bred to go to the Keeneland yearling sales, and a few are kept to be raced under the Falkon Stable colors. Some horses are purchased to race, including -
Goldseeker Bud, who won the $100,000 Churchill Downs Handicap in 1995, defeating the defending Kentucky Derby champion of 1994, Go For Gin.

George and Janet Falk are the owners of Sunny Acres Farm. Here are the Falks in the paddock at Keeneland.

Mr. Falk consulted with Joe Montano, son of trainer Angel Montano, in the paddock at Churchill Downs prior to the debut of his 2 year old colt Six Kings.

Brad Guyton is Sunny Acres' farm manager, trainer, and exercise rider. He plays a big part in the creation of new racing prospects, from taking the farm's mares to the stallion farms for breeding, to foaling, raising, breaking, and finally conditioning the young horses for their first start at the race track.

Pictured here is the latest Sunny Acres home-bred racing prospect Via Venezia. This 2 year old colt is by Sefapiano, a son of Fappiano, out of Street Smart by Beau Genius. He is training at High Pointe Farm near Louisville.
