  • We stopped here before leaving town and I’m glad we did! Such a neat experience to see and learn about the Derby. Highly recommend. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered many questions.
  • Wonderful, kind staff. They were helpful and thoughtful with our daughters. They brought our oldest a wheelchair and made sure the tour was accessible. Stan, our tour guide was knowledgeable and made the tour fun. He was humorous and engaging with our younger daughter, who loves horses. We will definitely return to experience the back end tour and a race. Thank you.
