We arrived at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky last Sunday and camped at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground. Was a very nice campground with many amenities and we had a large shade tree on our site. That afternoon Elena and I visited the Kentucky Race Horse Retirement Center. The tour we were able to take was up close and personal with many of the horses- of whom many were former Derby winners. Our guide shared so many interesting facts and info concerning the history ...

We drove to Churchill Downs, home of the Kentucky Derby. It is right next to the University of Louisville and of course Ron had to wear his MSU shirt, just to rub it in.
Not knowing much about horse racing, this was really a very interesting place to visit. Some of the exhibits were very creative and the track was beautiful. On race day, they get 160,000 spectators. It is just a massive ...
