Lexington - Proud Host City of The Bourbon Chase
Lexington's Bluegrass Region is home to legendary horses, breathtaking landscapes and a culture rich in tradition.
Lexington is the center of the world's Thoroughbred horse industry - where the top racehorses are bred, born, trained, officially registered, bought and sold, retired to stud and buried. In the Bluegrass, you can meet previous Kentucky Derby champions - or perhaps catch a glimpse of a future winner on the world's most famous farms.
Come experience our "Unbridled Spirit" of hospitality for yourself!
Everyone knows Kentucky is famous for horses, bourbon and bluegrass music, but the Bluegrass State is also fast becoming known for the "Unbridled Spirit" of its people. This spirit of pride, friendliness, and hospitality makes Kentucky an ideal place to visit. Kentucky offers a bounty of sights, scenery and activities from which to choose.
