You may never have heard of Edward P. Evans, but he was a well-known breeder of thoroughbred racehorses before his death last year. His farm and all its horse facilities are up for sale for $25M in Fauquier County. The 2,426 acres that make up Spring Hill Farm's property combine to make it the largest number of contiguous acres currently on the market. It includes eleven tenant houses for the people and 174 stalls for the horses. The main house on the land is a five bed, four bath colonial but there are two other main houses also on the property. The equine alumni who have made it big are too numerous to list, but many will have heard of Saint Liam (who won the Breeders' Cup Classic, the Donn Handicap and the Woodward Stakes) or Quality Road who set track records three separate times.
