Clovelly Sold to Golden Age Farm

The facility will be operated by Richard and Sue Masson as Green Lantern Farm.

Clovelly Farms near Lexington has been purchased by Richard and Sue Masson’s Golden Age Farm and will continue to be operated as a Thoroughbred facility, according to an announcement by Biederman Real Estate.

The real estate firm, which brokered the purchase with Mike Morrison as agent, did not disclose the purchase price.

According to a Dec. 21 filing with the Lexington-Fayette County Property Valuation Administrator's office, Green Lantern Farm purchased the farm for $11.4 million.

Owned by Robin Scully since 1960, the 619-acre farm will be operated by the Massons under the name Green Lantern Farm. Among the horses campaigned by the Masson’s Green Lantern Stable has been grade I winner Karelian.

Clovelly announced last year it would disperse its horses, which were sold at the Keeneland breeding stock sale.

Among the horses bred by Covelly have been major performers Silver Hawk, Alkaased, Ancient Regime, Cricket Ball, Pay the Butler, and Pleasantly Perfect, who won the 2003 Breeders’ Cup Classic – Powered by Dodge (gr. I). Another Breeders’ Cup Classic winner, longshot Arcangues (in 1993), was raised at Clovelly.
