Collection Overview

Biography / History
In 1897, John E. Madden had two-year-old thoroughbreds, Hamburg and Plaudit. Madden sold Hamburg for $40,001 to Marcus Daly, and in 1898, used the proceeds to buy a piece of land on Winchester Pike in Lexington, KY. Madden named his new-bought farm Hamburg Place. The second thoroughbred, Plaudit, went on to win the 1898 Kentucky Derby, and became the first thoroughbred that stood at Hamburg Place to do so. John E. Madden bred five winners of the Kentucky Derby (Old Rosebud, 1914; Sir Barton, 1919; Paul Jones, 1920; Zev, 1923; Flying Ebony, 1925), five winners of the Belmont Stakes (Joe Madden, 1909; The Finn, 1915; Sir Barton, 1919; Grey Lag, 1921; and Zev, 1923) and the first Triple Crown winner (Sir Barton, 1919). John E. Madden had two sons, Edward and Joseph. Edward's youngest son, Preston, took over management of the Hamburg Place farm in 1956. Preston revived the breeding of thoroughbreds at Hamburg Place.
