Lexington - the Thoroughbred - not only won six of his seven starts (some of them four miles long!), he was America's top stallion (sire) for sixteen years once he retired! In total, he fathered 236 winning sons and daughters while living at Woodburn Stud, the birthplace of all of America's Thoroughbred Racing, just a few miles west of our own home at Keeneland!
Some of Lexington's famous sons included Preakness, Kentucky and Cincinnati! (Yes, they were all famous horses back then!)
And because Lexington - the Thoroughbred - is now our city's logo - in royal blue... we are designing your Official 2017 Race Week Swag in Lexington's famous royal "Kentucky" blue!
