Owner description: 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.

“Just warming up.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

My daughter and I visited Keeneland and it's track kitchen on March 6th just in time to experience the Keeneland sale in the gift shop and library. We got to watch trackside as horses were being exercised for the morning and got to speak with some of the track employees. My daughter will be attending her first year of veterinary school in the fall and besides the great deal we got at the track kitchen, we found a Merck Veterinary Manual that she will be able to use in her profession and will have that as a lifetime memory. Exceptional experience for anyone with a love of horses.

“Fantastic Experience - Never to a Horse Track Before”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

Traveling through to Western Ky we stopped for a while to see the sights. We didn't research this stop much before hand. We were welcomed warmly on this cold March day. The four of us wandered the grounds at our leisure. The Winners Circle, Stands, Paddock, Keenland Room, Queen's Room. Beautiful views and pleasant people. We were unable to stay for a race though. You should go.

“Beautiful Place - a grand park.”

Despite the cold weather on my visit everything about the place was classy and clean without pretense or snobbery. Hope to return.
