People have been gaga lately over Madonna buying Long Island real estate for her horses.

Yes, she’s taking Wild Ocean Farm in Bridgehampton for her horses, but the newest bud of a rumor is she’s also nabbing the Dream Come True Farm, a 29-acre equestrian riding and boarding facility in Manorville, right next to the Pine Barrens.

But Judi Giambanco, who owns the property with husband Vito, said she wishes it were a dream come true but it’s not.

When asked if Madonna, like a lot of celebs and rich folks, might be using a front person to inquire and buy, Giambanco, in between taking orders for pizzas at her Sicilia Doro Family Restaurant in East Patchogue, chuckled a tiny bit and rejected it like a pie-in-the-sky notion.

“It’s definitely not true,” she said.

Giambanco said her husband made a hobby into a job by starting the riding business, but it’s been getting tougher physically as the years go by and as the couple try to run two businesses.

The asking price is $6 million, Giambanco said, and the property has been on the market for about two years. “Most people can’t afford $6 million,” she said.

Well, Madonna can.
