Kentucky Horse Farms For Sale - Keeneland Race Track - Lexington KY

Kentucky Horse Farms For Sale - Keeneland Race Track - Lexington KY

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.

Nearby are legendary Kentucky horse farms. A few in Fayette County are for sale.

Keeneland is with out a doubt the most beautiful race track anywhere.

A jewel-box 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 at Keeneland Race Track is very much like racing in England. Out-of-towners show up to see the horses but locals go there to watch the people.

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.

This has been the same here 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.

When this picture was taken, it was a rainy day and the big race was The Bluegrass Stakes...a prep race that sometimes determines what colts are ready to go to the Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. Out-of-towners show up to see the horses but Kentuckians go there to watch the people.

Fillies will prep in the Ashland Stakes. Everything is built with comfort and beauty in mind at Keeneland Race track.

Many people come to Lexington KY to invest in Kentucky Horse farms. If it is one of your dreams to own horses and to race check out the farms that are for sale now.

Lizette- Amazing history in Kentucky in regards to horses and equine events. And many of the people there, come here to Wellington for the annual Winter Equestrian Festival and Polo events.

Hi Lizette, I love Keenland, we are visiting friends in Lexington once a year, I love the area and we like horse racing. Thanks for sharing. Next year we are at the Kenntucky Derby...

Even the Thoroughbred industry is suffering this year. Reports from OBS and Fasig-Tipton reflect a correction not unlike RE. I'd rather look at horses myself!

Lizeette - this is an interesting glimpse into the horse world in your part of the country.  I could feel the excitement of the event.  And I could quite imagine owing a place like this if I live there - what a great life!

Lizette,

I used to go to the horse races around here, but not in years. You have some great photos.
