Brilliant Farms; Winstar Farm in Versailles; and Three Chimneys Farm in Midway.There are scenes from now-closed-to-the-public Calumet Farm; views of the Man O War Barn and victory bell at Mt. Brilliant Farm; Three Chimneys' paddocks of celebrity horses such as Big Brown and Smarty Jones; footage of Winstar Farm, producer of the 2010 Kentucky Derby and Belmont Stakes winners; Crestwood Farm's family-run business; along with the famous architecture and rolling hills of Donamire Farm.
The program was co-directed and written by Al Greenfield, who collaborated with High on the 2008 film Bourbon and Kentucky: A History Distilled, and the 2009 award-winning documentary Vintage Kentucky: The Vine to Wine Experience. Both docs are in current rotation on KET, and Bourbon and Kentucky has been syndicated to PBS stations across the country.
