The best looking race establishment I have ever seen. Beautiful surrounding rural scenery. We spent the day in the clubhouse area and lawn along the finish line. We loved every minute of it and hopefully will return soon. Every employee was friendly, helpful, and dedicated. I was genuinely impressed with the professionalism of the presentation. Best day at a track ever, and we never cashed a winning ticket.
This was my first visit to a racetrack. The $5 general admission was well worth the price. The beverages were moderately priced and there was no cost for parking. We had a lot of fun and would have enjoyed it even if we didn't bet. We bet small amounts of cash and enjoy the fun. Highly recommended.
Took my sweetie in to see a horse auction. All she's been to Keeneland many times this was for first time in the auction Pavilion. Nice experience for somebody that's never seen thoroughbreds auctioned off! It is a totally classy operation as you would expect at Keeneland!
Beautiful facility, very clean, well maintained and extremely friendly staff. We really enjoyed our day at the races. It was very easy to place bets at any of the electronic terminals. This trip we sat in the grandstands which was a little chilly. We noticed that the general admission area filled up quickly near the track (people move benches toward the track to set up seating for their groups). Lots of people brought their own chairs. I was a little surprised at how many kids were there.
The Best! Keeneland does everything right, Every time! They are top notch! Keeneland always goes above and beyond and if that weren't enough, they continually give back to the community! They are a wonderful asset to the City of Lexington, Ky and I am so glad they are here!
