Keeneland Opens Tomorrow For The Fall Meet
Probably the most beautiful horse track in the country opens tomorrow and runs through Oct 25th. I didn't make it out last year but will definitely be going at least once this year. (This new knee is allowing me to do all kinds of things again) I usually take $10 and when that's gone, it's gone. Most of the racing scenes of the 2003 movie Seabiscuit were shot at Keeneland because its appearance has changed relatively little in the last several decades. It's fun to go out real early in the morning and have breakfast at the track kitchen with the people who work the horses (The jockeys are always easy to pick out) The picture of the track was when Lyndsey & Andrew were visiting and the other photo my brother Rick took of the entrance to Keeneland when he was in town last November.
