Glencrest Farm’s Former Stallion Barn Destroyed By Fire; Three Riding Horses Perish

A barn that once was home to Glencrest Farm stallions Clever Trick, Wavering Monarch and Full Out was destroyed by a fire on Christmas morning, leaving three riding horses dead.

The fire was confirmed by John Greathouse Jr., who along with several other family members operates the farm established in 1950 by John Greathouse Sr. Glencrest is located in Midway, Ky., on the border of Scott and Woodford Counties.

Glencrest no longer stands stallions but operates as a breeding, boarding and sales prep farm, offering representation in sales, along with bloodstock analysis and management.

“Nothing survived,” Greathouse Jr. said. “The barn is gone and sadly the horses.”

Cause of the fire is not known.

The fire came three days after funeral services for the family matriarch, Mary Allen Wombwell Greathouse, the widow of John Wallis Greathouse Sr. She died on Dec. 19 at the age of 100.
