CASA Farm - formerly known as Mare Haven Farm - enjoys a location of proven, historic success. In addition to its varied topography - which assists in the conditioning of successful racehorses - Lexington's Town Branch, Lindsay's Spring, and Wolfe Run Spring all surface on CASA Farm. Because of these dependable water sources, the rich soils, and close proximity to the then-new camp ''Lexington'', Gov. Isaac Shelby claimed this tract for his father. The farm has thus been continuously operated as a horse farm since the 1820s. Upon purchase in 2004, the owners set about a comprehensive restoration/renovation of the main residence (ca. 1788), as well as the horse facilities. Ninety-two stalls in six barns are brilliantly-arranged within easy walking distance of paddocks and fields which, in addition to the many miles of four-plank fencing, are all impeccably maintained. Great expense was taken to bury overhead utility lines, resulting in spectacular western-oriented panoramas of rolling Bluegrass hills. Farm alumni include CURALINA, GOODBYE HALO, GONE WEST, LUCKY DEBONAIR, and PRINCE WILL I AM, to name only a few. And, immediate neighbors include Calumet, Darby Dan, and Stonestreet!
