Owner description: Part thoroughbred race course, part sales company and considered one of America's most beautiful tracks, Keeneland is known for its well-designed and meticulous landscaping. The grounds consist of the paddock, a prep area where visitors can view horses up-close just before the race and a combination of dirt and turf race tracks.

“Racing, The Way It Was Meant To Be!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2012

Like racing? Like being outside on a beautiful, park-like property? Love good food and having fun with friends? Then Keeneland is a great place. Don't miss racing spring and fall! And the Keeneland gift shop is that perfect place to get your horsey friends the right gifts.

The physical beauty of the Keeneland Race Track is tops! Surrounded by airy space with an avenue filled with mature trees. The food offerings ...KY. burgoo, Corned beef sandwiches,...yum, yum!

“Not just for watching races”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2012

Keeneland is a very beautiful track built with limestone. Has a nice vibe. You can go by the barns and see race horses that are in training all year even if it's not race season (April and October). Watching the races is great too, but can get crowded for the big ones. Track kitchen is open to the public in the early mornings.

“One of the best places to be in April”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

One of the most beautiful tracks in the country. If you go in April there is top notch racing and excellent weather. The entire family enjoyed it, even my wife who doesn't care for horse racing. Get a box with seats.
