A boutique thoroughbred nursery and stallion station by function, Gainesway is the only horse farm in the world to be accredited as an arboretum.
Gainesway’s roster of nine stallions is headlined by three-time champion sire Tapit, who has sired 23 Grade 1 winners, five Breeders’ Cup champions and three winners of the Belmont Stakes. Tapit stands alongside Afleet Alex, Anchor Down, Bird Song, Birdstone, Empire Maker, Karakontie, Tapizar and To Honor and Serve.
