The Thoroughbred Center is nestled among the most lavish horse farms in Lexington. Our tours offer a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the care and training of Thoroughbreds like no other. During the tour, you will get to watch, at rail side, morning workouts of Thoroughbred horses; see horses up close at trackside, the paddocks and barns; visit with a horse owner/trainer who will answer questions; learn how Thoroughbred horses are trained for racing; experience a typical day in the life of a racehorse; learn why and how Central Kentucky came to be the Horse Capital of the World.
