MARCHMONT FARM is now a division of Claiborne Farm and was the former home of Catesby Clay. The first interments here were for MARGUERITE (who died in 1945) and SIR GALLAHAD III (in 1949), the sire and dam of GALLANT FOX. The farm is also the final resting place of prominent Claiborne sires who have not been buried in the main farm cemetery. These include DRONE, Argentine Horse of the Year FORLI, Preakness winner TOM ROLFE, Horse of the Year ACK ACK, TOPSIDER, Champion 2yo and Belmont Stakes winner EASY GOER, Horse of the Year DAMASCUS, Epsom Derby winner SIR IVOR, COX'S RIDGE, DANZIG, MAJESTIC LIGHT, Kentucky Derby winner UNBRIDLED, and Horse of the Year CONQUISTADOR CIELO.

Marchmont also is the burial site of many of the prominent broodmares who are owned by the farm or it's clients. Claiborne-owned mares who have been buried at Marchmont include THONG, STATE, TUERTA (dam of SWALE), FILE (dam of FORTY NINER), FORESEER (dam of CAERLEON), and Horse of the Year MOCCASIN. Several broodmares owned by the Phipps family have been laid to rest at Marchmont such as PURE PROFIT and champion RELAXING (dam of EASY GOER). -- A.P.
