About the Owner
Old Tavern Farm
Established in 2016, Old Tavern Farm is a private boutique thoroughbred breeding farm. Founded on the former site of Palmer’s Maple Shade Farm in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., the name Old Tavern was derived from the 1800s tavern that once graced the property.
Nestled atop a ridge overlooking Saratoga Lake and the foothills of the Adirondacks, Old Tavern Farm is focused on the breeding and sale of thoroughbreds that compete at the highest level of racing. Since inception, Walt and Michelle Borisenok have meticulously restored the land back to its agrarian roots, developing the farm into a state-of-the-art breeding facility. Their stewardship continues to be the cornerstone of Old Tavern Farm.
Old Tavern Farm management believes its future success hinges on the strength of the horses and the conservation of the land. It strives each day to maintain a commitment to the history, the land and the thoroughbred industry by breeding and raising elite thoroughbred athletes.
