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.

Excellent racetrack! very friendly people, good for kids, teenagers and elderly! If you like race horses or horses in general you have to visit the keen eland racetrack! even if they are not racing. The architecture is amazing (some people get married at this place) I have been there several times and will continue going!

Beautiful way to spend a day in Kentucky! The grounds are amazing and the horses are like watching art in motion...don't miss this in April or October! The atmosphere is festive and fun with great foods and beverages!

My granddaughter chose Keeneland as a venue for her wedding ceremony. She had family and friends and many others to share her special day. It was also recorded by LEX 18 news for midday news.

Everyone has heard of Churchill Downs because of the Kentucky Derby, but if you want a great experience at a race track be sure to put Keeneland on your list. They have blended the old with the new and it is a great experience in the spring or fall.

I've yet to find a track as beautiful as Keeneland. Rooted in the hills of Kentucky's horse country, grab a bourbon and make a bet. Good luck!

My friends and I went to Keeneland for the races in October. The palce is absolutley beautiful and the experience was something that you would imagine out of the movies in the 1950's. Service was impeccable. Everywhere we turn someone was there to assist and offer guidance for learning how to bet on horses. We went there for Friday and... More
