Fantastic!! Lots of fun. Our tour guide, Vickie, was very knowledgeable about the horses, horse industry and the Lexington area.

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...
