We went on guided tours through Churchill Downs. There is a back tour and a main building tour. Both are worth taking. The guides are very friendly and full of information.

Churchill Downs is the stop all horse lovers make. Just the movie is worth the money. The backside tour may not be for everyone, but all the rest is time well spent.
