Keeneland Race Track / Fall Meet 2010 / Lexington Kentucky - Thoroughbred Racing & Sales

Keeneland Race Track / Fall Meet 2010 / Lexington Kentucky - Thoroughbred Racing & Sales

Keeneland Race Track Bluegrass Stakes Lexington ky Thoroughbred racing and sales

Out-of-towners show up to see the horses but Kentuckians go to Keeneland Race track to watch the people.

Keeneland Race Track in Lexington KY is quite a legendary place and horse race aficionados will tell you that there is no place in the world like it. For a few weeks in the spring and fall, spectators check out Thoroughbred racing and many return to the sales.

An exquisite jewel set in the center of The Horse Capitol Of The World.

It is with out a doubt the most beautiful race track in the world.

Keeneland is a showcase for owners to present their best horses to well heeled spectators and serious horse people.

It's hard to put it into words, but here it is about pageantry, nobility, elegance and thrill of Thoroughbred racing.

The feel here in Lexington KY is very much like racing in England.

My picture is of the walking ring where the brightly dressed jockeys get final instructions from trainers and get ready to be walked to the track.

The elegant atmosphere at Keeneland has been the same since the 1930's. Amazing to many is that it is only open for racing twice a year...in the spring and then in the fall.

Everything at Keeneland Race Track is built with comfort and beauty in mind. 

Many people like the Phoenix Room that has a view of the paddock. I visited with good friends and snapped a few pictures from the windows of the horses.

The Keeneland Fall Meet begins on October 8th and continues through October 30st. No racing on Monday or Tuesday.

Go early around 7 AM and watch the horses workout. A tasty breakfast is served at the track in the Equestrian Dining Room. Click here for a video.

Keeneland became North America's first high-definition racetrack a few years ago with live race coverage and limited simulcasts in high-definition format. Additional HD broadcasts of Keeneland will be available via on-track television monitors, infield LED tote board and also HD-compatible ESPN telecasts.
