Overview
More
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.

This was one of the most enjoyable, informative tours concerning horseracing, horse selling and many other pieces of information that we have been on in a long time. I would highly recommend taking the tour just for the information.

Keeneland attendees can tailgate in the parking lot prior to races - just like college football. Purchasing a premium ticket to sit inside restaurant is worth the money. Be sure to order the Beer Cheese appetizer.

Visited here on our Heritage Tour. What an amazing place to be included in our tour. We visited the track and watched some horse exercise. Saw where the horses are paraded in the paddock. Everyone should do this for sure!
