The guide was fantastic and really made this a fantastic experience. So much history and background on the area and horse breeding and racing. The Keenland racecourse was excellent and the hands on tour of the horse farm was a highlight.

Visiting Keeneland was on the bucket list and it was especially fun to see the morning warm up! Seeing all of the beautiful horse farms and being able to walk around and get close and pet them was amazing! It was also awesome to see all the newborn colts and fillies! Vicki was the best tour guide...
