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.

We visited Keeneland during a recent anniversary/birthday trip to Kentucky. It was well worth the time spent. We went on a Tuesday to make sure we could get on a tour as tours are only offered on certain days of the week. You can check the website for details and make a reservation. It was nice to learn about the... More

This is the type of place you like to go and just sit and watch the track. The grounds are breathtaking. Make it a must visit

An early morning visit to the track afforded me a nice quite experience watching the horses get in their exercise. Hearing their hoofs hit the dirt and them snorting ace they raced around the track was great. I was pleased with how up close I was able to get to these muscular, magnificent creatures. The onsite cafeteria was a bonus.

We were there at non racing time of year. We thought we were at the end of the practice. There were only a couple horses on the track. They went in and the tractors came out to drag the track. We walked around the grandstands and watched the tractors. After they were finished, a lot of horses came out to... More

Efficient parking/transportation and plenty of places to watch the races makes Keeneland a very nice day for the family, especially if taking little girls who get into the spirit of dressing to impress!

In late March we brought family on a weekday morning for breakfast at the track kitchen and to watch morning workouts--it's a great opportunity to experience Keeneland without the crowds. The track kitchen opens at 6:30 daily. Staff at the track are always very friendly and helpful. We had a delicious breakfast (inexpensive too), watched several horses train, talked with... More

This place is up close and personal! It has great information and we were on a Tour. Our guide was amazing with facts like where did the lawn jockey statues come from.

It was really fun. Got to stand pretty close to the track. Buys seats to sit in is worth it. Staff was super nice.
