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.

Being from West cost not real familiar with Thorobred racing! The Keeneland property was amazing with the grounds in the middle of the bluegrass fields! What was cool about the tour was the stories and behind the scene areas we went! The Phoenix room was crazy for private functions! I wish we would of been able to visit during live racing. Also the stories of Thorobred auctions was really interesting

My wife was running the annual Run the Bluegrass half marathon which is why we were at Keeneland. I thought the site was wonderful as I liked the history of the grounds and the sites of the horses and such.

I have been here a half a dozen times or so. From being in the crowds down near the track to being in the private buffet rooms upstairs, it is always an enjoyable experience.

Observing morning training trackside is great. Everyone is friendly and willing to share their passion for the industry.

My daughter and daughter in law ran a half marathon here. This racetrack and surrounding park is like something out of a story book. This epitomizes everything beautiful about Kentucky. If you are in Lexington you need to stop by even if it is not racing season.
