Trout Valley barn home to 1928 Kentucky Derby winner set for restorations

Thoroughbred Reigh Count was almost unmatched as a sire, and retired racehorses, including one of TikTok fame, still reside on the property

Cary businessman Bob Harper and Mayor Tom Kierna hold a painting of Reigh Count by Frank Griggs. Reigh Count, owned by John and Fannie Hertz, was a thoroughbred horse, the Kentucky Derby winner in 1928, and was housed on the Hertz' 940-acre estate in what became the village of Trout Valley.
