Training and Stabling

Where Champions of Tomorrow are in Training Today!

Kentucky_Thoroughbred Training Center_Trackwork_20-08-2012_0015The Thoroughbred Center is located just outside of Lexington in Fayette County, Kentucky. Horsemen stabling here have a multitude of racetracks within easy, or reasonable, driving distance. This enables you to select races which best suit your horse and maximize potential return from your investment.

Some horses are brought here as yearlings, prepared for racing and then sent to trainers around the world. Others are stabled and trained  at The Thoroughbred Center year-round. Whatever your needs for training and stabling, The Thoroughbred Center is a great option!
