Touch Gold Pensioned, to Old Friends

Touch Gold, famous for denying Silver Charm the Triple Crown in the 1997 Belmont Stakes (gr. I), has been pensioned from stud duty and will live in retirement at Old Friends retirement facility near Georgetown, Ky.
 
The 21-year-old son of Deputy Minster—Passing Mood, by Buckpasser, stood in 2015 at Frank Stronach's Adena Springs near Paris, Ky., and has been donated along with an endowment. In October, Old Friends also accepted the Stronach-owned stallion Alphabet Soup.

I love Touch Gold: I went to visit him when he was four years old at Adena Springs ( I think it was Adena)-- anyway the groom brought him out and I petted him--- can't believe he is 21 ( and I am 17 years older----)

I have a son of Touch Gold. Just a lovely boy. I would love to get to Old Friends to meet his dad, and all the other wonderful residents.

Fun, we went during BC week and it was fun, I only wanted to see a select number of horses so we didn't do the whole tour. I had hoped that War Emblem had been out of quarantine by then but he wasn't. So another trip will be needed. :)
