Head first to the famous horse-racing track Keeneland and two horse farms in the area. Tour the barn at one of the farms, and catch sight of many Thoroughbred horses. 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. Learn about the history and present of horse-racing as a pastime.

Your guided tour ends with a convenient drop-off back at the starting point.
