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.
