Old Friends has launched its “Memory Lane–Brick by Brick” fundraising campaign, where supporters of the non-profit organization can claim a spot in Old Friends's Nikki Bacharach Memorial Garden with a custom paver honoring a loved one, a legendary horse, a lost pet, a business, or other. Fans can contribute to Memory Lane by choosing one of two-sized bricks customized with colors, graphics, and text to create an elegant and permanent legacy for $125 or $225.
Bricks will be laid to form a path in the Old Friends Memorial Garden/Champion's Cemetery, which is located adjacent to the farm's Visitor Center. Here, great horses such as Kentucky Derby Winners War Emblem and Charismatic, Breeders' Cup Classic Winner Awesome Again, and Champions Hidden Lake, Noor, and Bint Marscay (Aus) have been laid to rest. The courtyard will be open to visitors. Memory Lane bricks are available now and can be ordered via thatsmybrick.com.
Installation of the Memory Lane–Brick by Brick garden is expected to begin in June of 2021.
