  • This was such an amazing tour. Vicky was our guide and we could not have asked for a more knowledgeable guide. She seems to know the complete thoroughbred history and all of the surrounding farms. We were able to get up close and pet some. She also knows each of the horses and which ones we could safely pet and which ones would bite. We even got to see a foal that was born that day. She has such a pleasant way about her. I would highly recommend trying to get on one of her tours. The attached picture is of miss Vicky.
  • Lovely tour. Very timely with fantastic guide Vicky. She was full if knowledge and very personable. I enjoyed the racetrack. My only wish would've been to be able to talk with a trainer, jockey or possibly see the horses being groomed. The baby foals were adorable. Thank you.
