Annually entertain client here with my partners. The only let down during the entire day is always my Race Picks! The grounds are amazing and the staff is extremely helpful and courteous. I must visit if you’re in Lexington during the spring and fall meets!

Only two meets per year, April and October, but plenty to see and do if you are a "Horse fan".
