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.

Keeneland is a must-see when visiting Lexington. Our tour coordinator, Mary, made the visit even more special with her historical and human interest stories!

Grounds were pretty much empty on a Sunday. Amazing to just walk the grounds and imagine the races. Well maintained. Beautiful scenery.

Embassy suites on Newtown should be quite safe or across the street at the Marriott if full.
