“Honoring historic figures in thoroughbred history”

Thoroughbred Park is the space that defines Lexington’s devotion to and dominance in the equine world. The park infuses the viewer with the depth of that devotion through statuary and forty-four plaques honoring the men and women who spent their lives breeding, training, racing and owning of those magnificent animals. Sculptor Gwen Readon’s twelve exquisite bronze statues, including the nineteenth century’s greatest Thoroughbred stallion, Lexington, a splendid broodmare, frolicking foals with one at rest and seven horses racing, capture the essence of the sport amid fountains, flowers and landscaped entities symbolic of the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing: the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness and the Belmont.

Nice grounds with numerous plaques dedicated to describing notable breeders. A must see if you’re into horses, breeding and racing. Cute spot to stretch your legs even if you’re not into horses.

The description makes the park sound great but it's not kept up well. Rose winners circle was mostly dead and park isn't laid out like io thought it would be...a little disappointed but the brass statues are beautiful!!!
