Keeneland, Lexington Reviews
My husband and I stopped by Keeneland Race track just to look around. We went into the information center to ask some questions and was greeted by Mary Perkins, tour coordinator. We had not scheduled a tour, but she offered to show us around and had a wonderful time. She explained the history from the beginning until the present. Mary is very knowledgeable on Keeneland and I highly recommend asking for her if you ever visit. She was great!!! This is something you must do if in the area.
The ambiance you experience in the gates of this establishment is beyond exciting. It's thrilling, classy, well staffed, and the grounds are always immaculate. The shuttle service provides a nice service for ladies in showy shoes and anyone with special needs. While the only drawback I could find was the lack of seating in the lower level, overall Keeneland is a fun, family friendly environment for all ages. Enjoy it every opportunity you have!
Well I’ve been a number of years in the past 15-20 but it I can’t say that they have changed a lot. I’m sure that was part of their plan seeing as it’s a more “traditional sport.” It’s been a while since I’ve had the food so I can’t really say anything on that until I go back. Don’t remember ever disliking it though. If you’re not a fan of crowds maybe go to a smaller less popular track than this.
One of the best kept secrets on racing. You can get up close to all the action from the paddock to the rail. And the food is pretty good too.
Keenland Horse sales is pretty cool to see. The various breeds of thoroughbreds are sold and some bring a lot of $. Seen a yearling of American Pharaoh sell for over $200;000 it's quite intriguing to watch. It's really not a place for young children. If ya had alot of $ to invest these amazing breeds of thoroughbreds would be a great investment.
