Got there early so we could watch the workouts. Such beautiful animals. Went on a tour with Carol Sue as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and we got to see the sales area, and behind the scenes stuff. Must see if in the area. It’s a beautiful track and setting even on a cold, morning.

Our family of six (4 kids ages 7-13) arrived at Keeneland a little before 9:00 in the morning to try to catch a morning workout. We were greeted by Mary at the ticket booth with sweet friendliness. I had talked on the phone with Mary a couple of weeks before, and she was very helpful in telling me what she thought the family would enjoy. So we checked in with her just to make sure we weren’t too late to see the horses. She assured us we weren’t, and we proceeded to the gate, had our temperature taken, and then given a sticker to place on our shirts to show we were approved to be on the grounds.
We went to the track and saw a horse or two and then tractors came on and began smoothing out the track. We thought we had just missed most of the activity. We decided to leave the track and check out the rest of the facility. As we exited the track, we came across a Keeneland employee and asked her if we’d missed the morning workout. She was so friendly and explained that since they run so many horses the tractors come in to clean it up for the next group of horses. She checked a schedule on her phone told us the next group would be coming in shortly (around 9:00). So our family returned to the track and got to see plenty of horses doing their thing. Each staff person we visited with was very helpful and very friendly. You can tell they love what they do and love sharing it with others.

Beautiful place to visit even when there are no horse races happening. We got some great pictures and videos of the horses working out on the track.

Got to visit and do a morning work out tour-a private little tour that took us all around the park and our tour Guide-her name was-boy I’m so bad with names!- I want to say Diane- it started with a D! But she was oh so sweet-she told is it was only her second tour-very knowledgeable and well spoken. We got to see some trainers and jockeys do their morning work out with the horses and tour the ground in general. Very well maintained area and super friendly workers. Though be warned-their little merch store is EXPENSIVE though that should be a given lol-since it is such a high end place. Also visited the Kentucky horse park- Keeneland blew them out of the water so high that it is not even fair to compare the two! Will for sure being going back to see a race and sale in person one day!!

The grounds, 1000+ acres, are so beautiful even on a cold January day. The park stays open and you are permitted to enter without restriction or fee. On our visit, we started with 30-minutes of watching the horses being ridden on the practice track. As the practice riders when around the oval, we were warmly greeted by nearly everyone. We ate breakfast at the track restaurant; we were the only non-employees there. Then we were treated to a tour by Mary Perkins who showed us all the wonderful architecture and told us of the history of the track and the current organization and business of Keeneland.
