Horse racing in Kentucky

One day each year, at one of the most popular Kentucky horse racing tracks – Churchill Downs in Louisville – you can experience “the greatest two minutes in sports.” This race is otherwise known as the Kentucky Derby (find out what horse ran the fastest Kentucky Derby), the first race of the famed Triple Crown series. At Keeneland race track in Lexington, there’s also world class thoroughbred racing in fall and spring amid a beautiful pastoral setting and plenty of national horse racing history to see and read about at the Kentucky Derby Museum. Several other Kentucky horse racing tracks feature fantastic live racing as well.
