If you come during April, you can watch live racing at Keeneland in Lexington. The Toyota Blue Grass Stakes (April 12) is a prep race for the Derby, so you will see horses that will race in the Derby.

Not sure if you have already traveled ? If not may I suggest Beaumont Inn or Shakertown located in or near Harrosdburg, Ky. Also if flying in you may want to look at what Ky Wine Tours has to offer www.kwbtours.com either way have great trip to Kentucky.

Check out Lawrenceburg KY. Right in the center of the Bourbon Trail with Four Roses and Wild Turkey both in town. Woodford Reserve and Town Branch are only 15-20 minutes away and all of the ones around Bardstown are 30-45 minutes away. If you are planning on the entire trail you might consider checking Lebanon Ky and tour the cooperage where the Bourbon Barrels are made.

Bardstown is a good base for a majority of the major distilleries. Makers mark, heaven hill, jim beam, bartons, etc. Just depends on which you want to visit.
