Once we found an ambassador/employee to share information with us it was better. Unfortunately that took more than an hour. They need a one stop area to share with visitors what is available, where to go, how the facility works, etc. Track training. Great. Walking the buildings to see the horses and talk with owners/sellers. Great. Breakfast at the kitchen.... More

Liked it all! Valet parking, great food and bars and shuttle bus transportation around the property was fantastic. Never ran into one nasty employee. Staff was great

one of the nicest looking tracks I've ever been to. The whole area is well kept, the landscaping is beautiful and it is easy to watch the races from.

We were in the right place at the right time. The annual yearling sale at Keeneland was going to take place the afternoon of the day that we were there. A very nice volunteer, Judy, picked us up in a golf cart and took us for a tour of Keeneland. She explained to us the auction process and gave us... More

If you want to attend a horse race in Kentucky, Keeneland is your place. It is the most scenic / historic track in the state. Come early because the crowds are large, but you can buy your seats online to avoid ticket lines. It's a must go to place if you are in Lexington during the racing season.

We toured this incredible racing park as part of a tour.... Never having been to a racecourse, it was a total learning adventure! Fun to hear that part of the movie 'Seabiscuit' was filmed there.

It was beautiful even though it was not racing season. The history and the hard work to guarantee it's beauty made the visit worthwhile.
