A national landmark set in an exceptionally beautiful and tranquil location; it has even been visited by Queen Elizabeth II. Indeed, in addition to witnessing some exceptional high stakes racing, one can also enjoy all the social satisfaction of a high society turnout on a Saturday afternoon during the season.
But this destination is really all about the racing, and with such prestigious events as the Toyota Blue Grass Stakes and the Coolmore Lexington Stakes there is no shortage of high excitement on and off the racecourse. There are also the semi annual yearling sales where historically a dozen future Derby winners have changed hands. If you are looking for a sure bet for racing excitement, there is no better destination than this jewel in the crown of Kentucky horse racing.
