Best of Kentucky

     Kentucky is known for thoroughbred horses so it is not surprising that many of the best sights are concerned with thoroughbreds and horse racing.

       One of the best introductions to the “Sport of Kings” can be found at Kentucky Horse Park, in Lexington.

while Churchill Downs, in Louisville, is more traditional. It hosts the most famous horse race in the world, the Kentucky Derby.
