Toby Keith Gearing Up For Kentucky Derby & More in Casey’s Taste of Country
You might see Toby Keith in May at the Kentucky Derby and no, that does not mean he will be performing. Toby is prepping for the Kentucky Derby with a horse named Reckless Jerry that he owns under the name of Dream Walkin’ Farms. Clever, right? Toby actually owns a 330-acre farm in Oklahoma with more than 100 mares. He’s apparently heavily involved in sales and as a “pin-hooker”, or someone who buys horses and turns around to sell them for a profit. He reportedly has plans to breed most of his mares to Cactus Ridge and Ice Box.
