Keeneland Race Track
Lexington, Kentucky: August 6, 2004

The final stop on our tour was the Keeneland Race Track. Keeneland is only open for about 6 weeks per year, three of them preceeding the Kentucky Derby. Auntie Linda says the Keeneland Race Track also had a part to play in the Seabiscuit movie - Keeneland played the part of the "Pimlico race course in the movie for the big 1930s race itself between War Admiral and Seabiscuit".

As a special touch, the hedges even spell out "Kenneland".
