What a story! In the late 1870s, a carpet manufacturing innovator was told by his doctor that a Thoroughbred farm would be great for his health. Thus the Sandford Stud Farm was born. In the Upstate New York/Saratoga region, the name is well-known. Not only for the Sanford Stakes run at the racetrack, but for the Sanford Stable on Nelson Avenue. Of the original farm - which had success for over 100 years - only a few of the original barns remain.
I had the extreme pleasure of photographing them on a perfect summer evening just as the sun was setting, casting a golden glow over the weathered wood frames.
