Golden Chance Farm, home of the 1970 Kentucky Derby winner Dust Commander, is being offered for sale for the first time in decades.  

"Kirkpatrick & Co. is deeply honored by the confidence of our client," said the company's president and principal broker Zach Davis, who has the listing. "It's always a pleasure to offer a farm with such provenance, but because this year is the 50th anniversary of its Derby victory, it's doubly-special."

Mr. and Mrs. Robert Lehmann won the 1970 Kentucky Derby with Dust Commander, who they purchased at Keeneland in 1968 for $6,500. Following his Derby win, Dust Commander enjoyed a remarkable career at stud. He sired 17 stakes winners, including the winner of the 1975 Preakness Stakes (G1), Master Derby.

Also among the farm's esteemed alumni are John Henry and Run Dusty Run.

The property includes approximately 600 acres of rolling Bourbon County land with an excellent location and proven productive soils.  

The farm is anchored by a residence built of Kentucky River marble, complete with matching guest house and garage, and an iconic stone carillon. Equine improvements include five barns with 100 stalls, a HydroHorse aquatread, and a six-horse Kraft hotwalker.

Stoner Creek meanders through the farm, offering some of the most breathtaking and exclusive vistas in all of Central Kentucky. Immediate neighbors include Claiborne Farm, Coolmore America's Creekview Farm, Godolphin's Stonerside Farm, Stone Farm, and Xalapa.
