You'll also drive by Calumet Farm to see the well-known farm and racetrack. During your tour, your guide will get you acquainted with the horse culture of the area.

Wonderful tour with Ernie Flynn. He had so much insight into horse racing because he was a former jockey and horse trainer.

We were lucky to have Ernie Flynn as our tour guide. He was a jockey and trainer at Keenland and other tracks. His insights and stories were fantastic. My husband and I agree this made our trip to Lexington a hit. Ask for Ernie as a former jockey he takes you to the stalls

The best part about this tour was the guide, Ernie Flynn. He was a wealth of knowledge. He did his job well. I gave the low review because I felt like the website over promised and under delivered. You can drive by all the farms, tour Keeneland and visit Seattle Slews gravesite
