Bred in Kentucky by Adena Springs, Memento d’Oro is a dark bay daughter of multiple graded stakes winner Medaglia d’Oro out of Intangaroo, a multiple graded stakes winner sired by Eclipse Award winner Orientate. Campaigned by Stronach Stables, Memento d’Oro was trained by Jose Corrales. Racing in 2015 and 2016, Memento d’Oro finished second in a maiden special weight at Laurel Park in January 2016 before earning her lone career victory that March at Laurel by 2½ lengths. With her impressive pedigree, Memento d’Oro was regarded as a string broodmare prospect and was purchased by Walt Borisenok for $160,000 and sent to his Old Tavern Farm, which is located near Saratoga Race Course in New York. Memento d’Oro is in foal to Bodemeister.
Established in 2016, Old Tavern Farm is a private boutique thoroughbred breeding farm. Founded on the former site of Palmer’s Maple Shade Farm in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., the name Old Tavern was derived from the 1800s tavern that once graced the property.
Nestled atop a ridge overlooking Saratoga Lake and the foothills of the Adirondacks, Old Tavern Farm is focused on the breeding and sale of thoroughbreds that compete at the highest level of racing. Since inception, Walt and Michelle Borisenok have meticulously restored the land back to its agrarian roots, developing the farm into a state-of-the-art breeding facility. Their stewardship continues to be the cornerstone of Old Tavern Farm.
Old Tavern Farm management believes its future success hinges on the strength of the horses and the conservation of the land. It strives each day to maintain a commitment to the history, the land and the thoroughbred industry by breeding and raising elite thoroughbred athletes.
