About Edition Farm
Owned and operated by Vivien G. Malloy, Edition Farm began in 1971 as “a little tractor shed” in Purchase, New York. According to their website, the farm bought its first broodmare in 1981, leading to the birth of its first racehorse in 1984. In order to accommodate their growing operation, Edition Farm relocated to Hyde Park, Dutchess County in 1986.
Since then, Edition Farm has produced numerous stakes winners, making it one of the top thoroughbred farms in the state. The farm has achieved national and international success with stakes winners in America, Japan, Barbados, and Turkey, as well as two New York Breeder Awards: the 2006 Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association (TOBA) Breeder of the Year Award and the 2010 New York Thoroughbred Breeders (NYTB) Breeder of the Year.
If you’d like to see where thoroughbreds get their start, you won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind guided tour!
