Keeneland - Review
Keeneland is a historic racecourse in Lexington. Every April and October, races are organised at the track along with exclusive dinners and auctions. Auctions take place in September, November and January every year. The best breeds of horses are up for grabs in these auctions. This racecourse has been around for so long that it has become a major part of Lexington tradition. It has been named as a National Historic Landmark.

Keeneland, Lexington Reviews
This was our first experience going to horse races and we had so much fun. First race I bet $5 and won 56.50! It is a beautiful place from the lawns and landscape to the stables. Everything was very clean and tidy. I will be back!❤
This place is incredible! I was there on a Thursday in April. I brought a few customer friends there from Chicago and we had a great time! Dress up, it's part of the experience. We enjoyed great drinks (very good bloodies with Tito's, then nice cold beer) and good cigars from the shop. They give you a cutter and matches! If you are ever near Lexington in April or October, Keeneland is a must!
The absolute best place to watch horse racing. Get there early and tailgate on The Hill before the races begin. Once inside, the grandstand seating is spaced from the track to allow general admission and first come bench seating. They let you move the benches around so you can move them right up to the rail. Also great if you have a large group so you can all sit together. This is a must visit place for any horse racing enthusiast. Cannot wait to go back.
Beautiful track much more intimate and Churchill Downs. Excellent food in the Lexington room and great visuals of the horses coming into each race. Easy to fall Camp division where is for the race. Downstairs particularly in the Winner's Circle as an excellent spot which we were fortunate enough to be included in. The airport is directly across the street which makes an excellent exit strategy.
Always enjoy a beautiful day Keeneland during spring meet took the kids over for a few races in the afternoon they love to watch the horses from the rail can't wait to go back. And kids get in free so it's not a very expensive day if you're just going for a couple of hours or a few races. If you go with friends it's a great day to have a few cold drinks in the sun watching the horses hanging out.
