Wow! Imagine owning this farm and all of the history! ‘Newstead’ was built in 1830. Home to the 1980 Kentucky Derby winner, Genuine Risk. Also home to an Olympic show jumping rider. The main is 15,000 square feet! The property also has guest and tenant houses, a sand ring, barns and a grand prix field. There are two acreage sizes being shown in the listing.
