“One of the top racetracks in the usa”

Keeneland is unique because it is both a Thoroughbred racetrack and an auction company. Keeneland is also known for its extensive reference library on horse racing, which contains more than 10,000 volumes, an extensive video collection, and a substantial collection of photos and newspaper clippings. In 2009, the Horseplayers Association of North America introduced a rating system for 65 racetracks in the USA. Keeneland was ranked #1 of the top ten tracks. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986.

There is a public auction of Thoroughbred yearlings held every September. They sell nearly 5000 horses during this sale, some bringing upwards of $2 Million. A must see as the Kentuckians provide superb hospitality in showing off their bumper crop of homebred horses.

I stopped here on my way out of town during my road trip from Gatlinburg to Minneapolis. I had never been to a horse track and it was fun to see the area mostly empty other than employees. The track is open to the public for free when races are not going on and you are able to just walk around the arena at your leisure, the gift shop was open and there are bathrooms and water fountains and the grounds are beautiful. When leaving here I took the scenic route to Midway, KY and got a chance to see more of the amazing countryside and houses/farms of KY, definitely recommend this stop and route!!
