Spring Meet at Keeneland Race Track...Priceless!
In Kentucky there is nothing like a nice warm Spring day at Keeneland Racetrack. The current Spring meet is April 4 - 25. Next meet is in October.
I plan to spend my day there tomorrow with fellow AR member Connie King from Tenessee. She is coming up for a visit and to spend some time enjoying the weather. It will be her first time at Keeneland.
Kentucky locals go to Keeneland race track to watch the people...out of towners go to watch the horses!
It's like Kentucky Derby without all the hoopla and cameras. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and I would say it is the grandest track in the world for elegance and charm. An owner's showcase for 2 and 3 year old Thoroughbreds before going to Churchill Downs and the Kentucky Derby.
The picture below is of the paddock area at Keeneland where owners are giving last minute instructions to the jockeys. They are helped into the saddle and escorted by ponies to the track through a tunnel. The old clock in the bottom right is a Rolex. Cool huh?
