Keeneland, home to one of America's premier thoroughbred horse racetracks, offers live racing and a world-class reference library dedicated to the sport. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the complex began operations in 1936. Notable races include the Blue Grass Stakes and Beaumont Stakes, well known as preparatory races for Kentucky Derby hopefuls. The track's annual horse auctions draw buyers from around the world. If you can’t catch a live race, try one of the racetrack's self-guided tours of its active facilities.

  • Just spent an hour walking the grounds but a wonderful experience. We didn't know it but there was a horse sale in progress the day we visited - will host the Breeder's Cup later this fall.

  • Amazing Spring race! Staff A++++ Drinks A+++ The horses and Races and the fun! A++++ Even the Gift shop is A+++ We are collecting the unique one of a kind posters each season. One of the last ‘boutique’ racetracks where anyone can step back into time and enjoy a day of luxury and entertainment in THE HORSE CAPITAL of the world-KY!! I can’t wait until fall!
  • Took my sweetie in to see a horse auction. Although she's been to Keeneland many times, this was for first time in the auction Pavilion. Nice experience for somebody that's never seen thoroughbreds auctioned off! It is a totally classy operation as you would expect at Keeneland!
