Kentucky Three-Day Event
If horses are what you want to see, you have come to the right place.
The Kentucky 3-Day Event, formally known as “Rolex,” is an event no worth missing. Though the dates are from Thursday to Sunday you can arrive on Wednesday and watch the first horse inspection. This will give you a chance to get a lay of the land and see the horses and riders. Not only is there a humungous trade fair to stroll through but also a museum and several other Kentucky Horse Park attractions.
You can take a drive through the Lexington countryside past some mind boggling farms, head down the Bourbon trail, visit Keeneland Race track, take a farm tour and even head to Churchill Downs the week before the Kentucky Derby.
