Vahalla Farm- Woodford County
The farm is located West of Troy on Paul's Mill Rd., Troy,Kentucky.
Breeder and seller Ben Walden Jr., has just purchased 235-acre Valhalla Farm near Midway, Ky., where he will continue to operate his commercial breeding program.
Walden sold his Gracefield property near the Kentucky Horse Park to a show jumping operation earlier this year.
His plans are to build a new yearling barn, install an Aquaciser underwater treadmill for yearling sales-preparation, and expand the existing foaling barn at Valhalla from 10 to 20. He also will rename the farm Paul's Mill, which he said restores the original name its founders bestowed on the property some decades ago.
Walden expects his first Paul's Mill consignment to sell at Saratoga in 2009.
