Keeneland is the best horse tack in America! Love visiting and coming for the races. The hospitality, history, and horses are always to notch!
This place is so BEAUTIFUL. I can't say enough about this track. You can take a guided tour or print out a map and do a self guided tour for free. You can even watch the jockey's and the horses do workouts in the morning. Many movies have also been filmed here. For example, Seabiscuit, Dreamer and Secretariat. If you like horses or even if you don't, you'll love this track. I'm no horse person, but after visiting Keeneland, I now LOVE and appreciate HORSES !!!
