Part thoroughbred race course, part sales company and considered one of America's most beautiful tracks, Keeneland is known for its well-designed and meticulous landscaping. The grounds consist of the paddock, a prep area where visitors can view horses up-close just before the race and a combination of dirt and turf race tracks.

Fun day at the track

We love everything about Keeneland. It gets really crowded, but it is an amazing place. I love the gift shop, a little pricey, but fun to browse.

Lexington waits all winter for spring, but more important to them than the warmer weather, is the opening of Keeneland. For a few Dollars entry fee you get to be up close with the beautiful thoroughbreds!

Lexington is the horse capital of the world and nothing says it better than Keeneland. This is so much more than a beautiful racetrack. They have wonderful dining, scenery, history, gifts, etc. It's the perfect day with family and friends. A must stop and visit for everyone who comes to Lexington.

More sophisticated, much more beautiful, and less expensive than its in-state rival track. Try the burgoo and bread pudding while you're there too. Even the beef hot dogs taste far better there than any other place.

If you are not a horse racing fan, you will be after visiting Keeneland! The track and clubhouse are stunning and very easy to move around in. Parking is very efficient and is actually part of the experience. We have attended the fall meet for the last 6 years. The quality of the horses always provide exciting races and give... More

The natural beauty at Keeneland, the closeness of the paddock, the fun of being around horse lovers is a wonderful experience everyone should experience. This is a month before the Derby.

Twice a year this is the happening place to be. Lots of people, beautiful horses, the excitement of betting and beautiful weather makes this a "no lose" experience.

Just outside of Lexington, Kentucky, nestled in the rolling hill of the Blue Grass. This is a track for the casual racing fan and the aficionado! The paddock area is especially beautiful and intimate. You can almost reach out and touch the horses. If you shy away from large crowds visit during the middle of the week. If you like... More
