Keeneland Race Track Fall Meet 2009 Lexington KY - Thoroughbred Racing & Sales

Keeneland Race Track / Fall Meet 2009 / 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 9th and continues through October 31st. 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.

Last fall season, Keeneland became North America's first high-definition racetrack 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.

I've never been to a race...but vow to get to one in the future!

Love Keeneland. My eyes are on the Breeders' Cup which is coming up soon. Would love to attend (Bucket List).

I miss Keeneland. There are no racetracks around here (well, not for horses!)

Lizette,

I like to read the Dick Francis horse racing mysteries. I think he once wrote one that took place in Kentucky, while most of them take place in the UK.

Lizette, nice post, love the photos...

I've never been to Keeneland, it sounds very interesting. I love the "Kentuckians go to watch the people"... Isn't that true of locals when a favorite tradition that goes back several decades and people from all over come to see it.
