Vinery opened up their farm to fans for two hours on a beautiful, breezy afternoon in Central Kentucky. A Vinery spokesperson said the 4-year-old Saint Liam filly stopped over in Lexington for the fan visit at Mr. Porter’s request. Among those who came out for the filly viewing were local fans and media, some visitors in town for the Keeneland November sales and others from out of town, including a couple who drove in from New Jersey just to see the filly.
