Experience why Kentucky is world famous! Our fun and informative horse farm...

Experience why Kentucky is world famous! Our fun and informative horse farm tours (approximately 3 hours in length) take you through the heart and soul of Kentucky's beautiful blue grass horse country. Drive by, see and hear the history of Calumet horse farm, home of a breeding and racing dynasty that dominated the sport of kings during the 1940s, 1950s and beyond. Step out and enjoy a walking tour of the ivy-covered grounds of historic Keeneland Race Course, home to the planet's most expensive horse auctions. Take a peek at the thoroughbred horse lifestyle as we take you behind the scenes to explore a premier thoroughbred horse farm and visit up close and personal with their famous horses. We'll even see where scenes from the major motion pictures Secretariat, Seabiscuit and Dreamer were filmed.

This was one of the highlights of our vacation. It is large area with a lot to see. No hurry, move from event to event very easy. So many things to see, we chose to come back a second day.

I decided to book this tour as a stop on a road trip from Michigan to North Carolina. I have always had a love for horses but my two sons (ages 11 & 13) did not share my enthusiasm when I told them we were doing this tour. However they LOVED it and it ended up being a highlight of... More

One of the best tours we have ever taken. The whole family enjoyed it! Nick Neuman was so informative and answered all of our many questions. The afternoon spent on the horse farms with Nick as our guide truly made our experience in Lexington very memorable.

Our tour guide was Matt. He was very knowledgable about the area and took us to several farms in the area. We took this tour during Breeders Cup weekend. Our first stop was at Keeneland to tour the Barn area being used for auction that day. We saw many weanlings preparing for auction, very cool!

We had an enjoyable, entertaining and very educational tour with Dan. This was our first trip to Lexington, we knew nothing about horse racing but left with a great impression of the area and the sport. I highly recommend this tour company and this guide.

I am a horse racing fan and this was by far the best tour I have ever been on. Nick was our tour guide and his knowledge of the racing industry was second to none. Answered all our questions and gave us insights to the goings on of raising, training, and breeding horses. Plus interesting facts about the different farms... More
