Special access, memorable thoroughbred visits

We toured with Daniel. Just encyclopedic knowledge of the Thoroughbred environment. Enthusiastic, entertaining, fun visit. I suspect that this company has access to places that others may not. I would definitely recommend these folks for the tour.

I believe if you go on the 8:30 tour you will be able to see horses training on the Keeneland Race track. We went on the 12:30 tour so we missed that. Otherwise, I'm not aware of any other differences.
