We’re from Newport, RI. I visited the museum because I love horses. It’s been a bucket list item for me! The most surprising thing I learned about that there were only 3 fillies that won (Winning Colors, Regret, & Genuine Risk)— I remember each one specifically. Winning Colors is one of my favorite horses now. My favorite part of the visit was watching the training tour early in the morning. Glad we booked that!
