...and lost. That's what happens when you pick a horse solely on it's name. Too bad there wasn't one named "Really Fast Horse".
Even tho I exited Keeneland Thoroughbred Racetrack in Lexington, Kentucky with less money than when I entered, the experience was totally worth it. That just doesn't always happen (hence most of my visits to the doctor AND the Department of Motor Vehicles....oh yeah, and then there was my visit to the bank to pay my Real Estate taxes yesterday).
"Keeneland Thoroughbred Racetrack"
"We want a place where those who love horses can come and picnic
with us and thrill to the sport of the Bluegrass...We want them to come out
here to enjoy God's sunshine, fresh air, and to watch horses race."
-Hal Prince Headley, Keeneland Founder

Keeneland opened up it's track in October of 1936. There are only two racing months in the year. April which hosts various Kentucky Derby prep races. And October, with The Breeder's Cup prep races. Most of the racing scenes in the 2003 movie Seabiscuit were filmed at Keeneland because of it's authentic appearance. Keeneland takes pride in maintaining racing traditions (i.e., men MUST wear suits and ties if they wish to enter the clubhouse).

And the NOT so traditional...
Desperately seeking "Really Fast Horse" to win, place, or show.
