Thoroughbred Park is dedicated to the horses that have shaped up the nature of Lexington. This 2.5-acre park in the heart of the city can offer peace and tranquillity to travellers. Its name is emphasised by the seven life-size bronze statues of racehorses reaching the finishing line. Some of the most famous jockeys of racing history like Don Brumfield and Bill Shoemaker are shown riding in the statue. These sculptures were created by Gwen Reardon. Another structure shows mares and foals grazing in the lawns of the park. Along with the sculptures, there are 42 plaques in the park that commemorate the important figures in horse-riding history.

Thoroughbred Park Reviews & Ratings
Fun for the kids to run around and see the bronze statues. Details on the statues were so fine, actual clothing and tack might have have been dipped in bronze Maybe the jockeys too....
Beautiful park. Kentucky is known as the world headquarter for horse. This is my first time of visiting this park. Lovely
Nice little oasis in the heart of downtown. Iconic place to stop for a picture.
This is a lovely park. I see a few people speak of climbing on the horses. These are pieces of artwork.... not playground equipment! Enjoy them as the pieces of art that they are.
Nice little park. Cool horse statues, I think that's what you'd call them. And a water fountain that you're not supposed to swim in but people do.
