Even on a cold January day, touring the racehorse farms and track was a fantastic experience!

Our guide, Vicki, made our four hour tour, fascinating. She gave us a great overview of the horse racing world, with a non-stop description of horses, farms, owners, racing successes and failures, everything! We loved it!

I believe if you go on the 8:30 tour you will be able to see horses training on the Keeneland Race track. We went on the 12:30 tour so we missed that. Otherwise, I'm not aware of any other differences.
