While in Lexington the club toured the Keeneland Race Track and had the opportunity to observe the jockeys working with thoroughbred race horses.

The club also traveled to Louisville to tour Churchill Downs race track (home of the Kentucky Derby) and museum.

Before departing Kentucky, the club had the opportunity to tour the Claiborne Farm, world renowned thoroughbred farm and where Secretariat is buried.
